A revamped Marlins lineup stepped up on a day Josh Johnson showed signs of his former All-Star self.
Greg Dobbs delivered two doubles, three hits and an RBI, while Logan Morrison collected a run-scoring double as the Marlins held off the Indians, 5-3, on Sunday in front of 23,668 at Progressive Field.
