MIAMI (AP) — Rookie Charles Leblanc hit a pair of RBI doubles during an eight-run burst in the fifth inning and the Miami Marlins beat the Texas Rangers 10-6 for a split of their doubleheader.

Texas won the opener 3-2 as Mark Mathias drew a bases-loaded walk to snap an eighth-inning tie.


The Marlins trailed 3-1 in the nightcap before breaking loose. Leblanc became the sixth Marlins player with multiple extra-base hits in an inning. Marcus Semien hit his 22nd home run, tripled and singled and Corey Seager hit his 30th homer for the Rangers.
