Hanley sets team mark with 12th multi-homer game

PHILADELPHIA — A year ago, Hanley Ramirez dealt with injuries, and he was limited to 92 games.

Overall, it was a frustrating season for Ramirez, who batted .243 with 10 home runs and 45 RBIs. He had 338 at-bats.

Now healthy, the Marlins third baseman is picking up his numbers. And on Saturday, Ramirez belted two home runs off Philadelphia’s Cole Hamels.

It was Ramirez’s 12th multi-home run game of his career, establishing a Marlins’ record. He had been tied with Dan Uggla and Mike Lowell with 11.

Additionally, Ramirez now has 144 career home runs, which is second to Uggla’s 154. Lowell hit 143 in his days with the Marlins.

Prior to his two shots at Citizens Bank Park, Ramirez last went deep twice in the same game was at Texas on July 2, 2011.

Ramirez now has 10 home runs, matching his total of a year ago. They came in 53 games.
