Running Reyes continues to rack up triples
WASHINGTON -- Jose Reyes added two triples in the Marlins' 9-7 win over the Nationals on Friday night, tying him for the Major League lead with 11.

Reyes' first triple came in the fourth inning and drove in Justin Ruggiano to put the Marlins ahead 6-2. His second three-base hit in the 10th scored Ruggiano and Bryan Petersen, giving Miami the go-ahead runs.

"In that situation, maybe I like [triples] better," Reyes said. "The last one was to put my team ahead, and that was good, because it's never easy against the Nationals. They always find a way to fight back. We're just happy with a win."

Reyes is now 5-for-9 in extra innings this season, with a single, a double, two triples and a home run. According to Elias Sports Bureau, the last Major League player to have a season with an "extra-inning cycle" was the Cubs' Ryne Sandberg in 1984.
