Sanchez returns to rotation, Marlins beat Rockies

MIAMI ” Anibal Sanchez won his first start in 15 months, Hanley Ramirez and Jorge Cantu hit home runs and the Florida Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 12-2 on Thursday night.

Sanchez (1-0) allowed two runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings to win in his first start since May 2007. A shoulder injury that required surgery last June sidelined Sanchez for most of last season, after he won 10 games and threw a no-hitter as a rookie in 2006.

The right-hander threw 95 pitches, striking out four and walking two before leaving to a standing ovation.

Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa (5-6) retired just five batters, his shortest outing of the season. He left after allowing six runs in the second, including two on bases-loaded walks.
