Pinch-hitter Brett Carroll's three-run homer sparked a franchise-record 10-run eighth inning, and the Florida Marlins stormed back from a seven-run deficit to defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks 14-7 on Thursday night.

Florida matched the team record for the biggest comeback victory and Arizona set a club record for the largest blown lead.

When Florida's eighth inning finally ended with the last of the 14 batters who had gone to the plate, the remnants of a Chase Field crowd of 21,558 stood and applaud derisively.

Florida trailed 7-0 after five innings but rallied with three runs in the sixth and one in the seventh. Then the Marlins hit Arizona with the 10-spot in the eighth to make a winner of Kiko Calero (2-0).
