's two-week stint in the minors appears to have helped him regain his 2008 form.
both drove in two runs and Nolasco had his fourth straight strong outing since being recalled from the minors as Florida beat
5-2 on Wednesday night, the Marlins' fourth straight victory.
Ross had three hits, including two doubles, and
both scored twice for Florida (37-36), which moved above .500 for the first time since May 12.
Nolasco (4-6) allowed two unearned runs and seven hits in seven innings. It was his fourth consecutive start surrendering
two earned runs or less since being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on June 7.
''We're seeing the Nolasco we saw last year,'' Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
Nolasco was 2-5 with a 9.07 ERA when he was optioned on May 23. That was after he went 15-8 with a 3.52 ERA last season.
''This is completely different than what was going on early in the season,'' Nolasco said. ''This could have happened easily
for me at the beginning of the year but there were a lot things that didn't go my way at the same time.''
pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his first career save. Earlier Wednesday, the Marlins put closer
on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right elbow.
''I've started in my career. I've set up. I've come in in the fifth. And that ninth inning is different, no matter how you

(1-4) gave up three runs - two earned - and four hits in five innings. He walked two, struck out three and hasn't won in five
starts since being victorious in his major league debut May 26.
Bonifacio's throwing error let Baltimore score two unearned runs in the sixth to pull within 3-2. Florida added an unearned
run in the seventh and Ross had an RBI single in the eighth to make it 5-2.
The Marlins' run in the seventh was all due to Bonifacio, who beat out an infield hit, stole second and scored when catcher
' throw went into right center. Center fielder
was slow in getting to the ball before tossing it to second baseman
, who threw home too late to get a sliding Bonifacio.
''Thats not what its all about here and what the majority of guys here are all about. It happens, its unfortunate, but its
not acceptable. Its just that simple,'' manager Dave Trembley said of Pie's mental error.
''I have to throw the ball but I have to make a decision to throw to either home plate or second base. I threw to second base.
Thats a mistake, thats my fault,'' Pie said.
Ramirez made it 2-0 in the first with a two-run single and Florida went ahead 3-0 in the fourth on an RBI double by Ross.
''It took me a little while to get settled in, but any time you give up runs in the first inning it's tough to come back,''
