He sandwiched a single around a pair of walks to start the 10th inning of a 2-2 game Sunday. A.J. Ramos with the bases loaded and no outs pondered the following questions: Can you get the job done? Are you good enough to do it?

Ramos answered in the affirmative, inducing a 5-2-3 Russell Martin double play and two batters later striking out Clint Barmes. That set up Casey McGehee in the bottom half to keep doing what done all season. His sacrifice fly off Jared Hughes sent the Marlins to a series-salvaging, 3-2 win over the Pirates at Marlins Park.

It was McGehee who in the eighth ripped a game-tying, two-out, two-run double into the left-center field gap. The three-hit, three-RBI game raised McGehee's batting average to .309 and his RBI count to 43, which ranks second among all major league third baseman.
