August 19, 2009|Associated Press

HOUSTON — Ricky Nolasco struck out 10 in his second complete game of the season and the Florida Marlins had 10 hits for the 14th consecutive game in a 6-2 win Tuesday night over the Houston Astros.

Dan Uggla, Jorge Cantu and Jeremy Hermida hit solo homers for the Marlins, who've won nine of 11.

Florida's streak of 10-hit games is the longest since the 1937 St. Louis Browns reached the total in 15 straight, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Nolasco (9-8) retired 23 in a row after Carlos Lee's two-run homer in the first inning.
