As far as compliments go, Josh Johnson has heard his share after starts. The one teammate Greg Dobbs paid him following Sunday's 5-3 win over the Indians at Progressive Field probably was as fulfilling as any he's heard of late.

"He's starting to look like the J.J. we all know," Dobbs said. "Playing behind him was reminiscent of last year when he would just go out and dominate. Every time he was out it was the feeling of we're winning. It's win day today."

The Marlins made Sunday series-clinching win day thanks to seven innings of five-hit, one-run ball from Johnson and a 10-hit afternoon from a bomb squad lineup. The Marlins were without Gaby Sanchez (optioned to Triple-A), Emilio Bonifacio (disabled list) and Omar Infante (death in the family).

Chris Coghlan and Bryan Petersen comprised two-thirds of the starting outfield. Greg Dobbs and Donnie Murphy accounted for half of the infield, and backup Brett Hayes started behind the plate.

Nonetheless, the Marlins logged a double-digit hit total and improved their all-time interleague winning percentage to .537, tops among National League teams.

Dobbs paced the offense with a three-hit (two doubles) effort, and Jose Reyes and Hayes also had multi-hit games. The Marlins all but clinched it with a three-run eighth that featured an opposite-field, RBI-double off the left-field wall from Morrison, who grounded into the Indians' shift five times in three games.
