Bonifacio sets Marlins record with 16th steal
MIAMI -- When Emilio Bonifacio slid into second base in the fifth inning on Friday night, he did more than swipe his 16th bag of the season: He stole a Marlins club record.

Bonifacio's successful steal off Mets lefty Johan Santana was the 16th by the speedy center fielder in 16 attempts this season, breaking Chuck Carr's club-record 15-for-15 start in 1994.

The stolen base, which came with two outs and Jose Reyes at the plate, also tied a club record for most consecutive stolen bases without being caught. Bonifacio is now 17-for-17 in attempts dating back to Sept. 27, 2011, tying Carr's mark of 17 straight successful steals, set between Oct. 2, 1993, and May 15, 1994.

Bonifacio's 16 stolen bases lead the Majors this season.
