|Marlins Trounce White Sox 13-0
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Cody Ross hit two of Florida's five home runs and Josh Johnson pitched six sharp innings to help the Marlins defeat the Chicago White Sox 13-0 on Sunday.
Ronny Paulino, Dan Uggla, and Jorge Cantu also homered for the Marlins, who snapped a three-game losing streak and scored a season-high 13 runs. Gaby Sanchez, Uggla and Ross all finished with three RBIs and Cantu was 3 for 3 and scored three runs.
The Marlins scored only three runs and hit .172 during their three-game skid.
Johnson (5-1) improved to 5-0 in nine starts since an opening-day loss to the New York Mets, and has pitched 18 scoreless innings since giving up a run on May 13 against the Mets.
