ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- J.T. Realmuto had three RBIs in his major league debut, Marcell Ozuna homered and drove in four runs, and the Miami Marlins handed Tampa Bay its 10th consecutive loss by beating the Rays 11-6 on Thursday.

Realmuto drove in two runs on his first big league hit, a fourth-inning single, and added a sixth-inning RBI single.

Ozuna's two-run homer put Miami up 11-6 in the ninth. Giancarlo Stanton hit his 17th home run, a two-run shot during a three-run seventh that made it 9-5.

The Marlins beat the Rays for the fourth straight time in a home-and-home interleague series.

Kevin Kiermaier and Ben Zobrist homered for the Rays, who matched the longest skid in the majors this season. Boston dropped 10 straight from May 15-25, with Tampa Bay handing them the last three losses in the streak. The Rays haven't won since.

Tampa Bay has the majors worst record at 23-38 and are 14 games behind AL East-leading Toronto.

Marlins infielder Justin Bour also made his major league debut as the designated hitter and had an infield single during the fourth for his first hit. He picked up his first RBI with a single in the seventh.

Miami manager Mike Redmond was ejected by first base umpire Bill Miller for arguing after Desmond Jennings RBI double down the first-base line got the Rays within 9-6 in the seventh.

Jacob Turner (2-3) allowed five runs and eight hits over 5 1-3 innings for Miami.

A three-run sixth gave the Marlins a 6-3 lead. Casey McGehee ended starter Jake Odorizzi's day with a leadoff double. Jake McGee (2-1) entered and allowed RBI singles to Ozuna and Realmuto.

Matt Joyce had an RBI triple and pinch-hitter Jerry Sands hit a run-scoring single that cut the Rays' deficit to 6-5 later in the sixth. Sands' hit ended a stretch that saw Tampa Bay go 0 for 34 with runners in scoring position.

Ozuna hit an RBI single and Realmuto had his two-run single to help the Marlins take a 3-1 lead in the fourth.

Odorizzi gave up four runs and seven hits in five-plus innings.

Tampa Bay pulled even at 3 on fifth-inning solo homers by Kiermaier and Zobrist. James Loney put the Rays ahead 1-0 on a sacrifice fly in the first.

NOTES: The Rays held a moment of silence for team senior adviser Don Zimmer, who died Wednesday night at the age of 83. ... Tampa Bay C Ryan Hanigan (right hamstring tightness) ran the bases and could start a minor league rehab assignment Saturday. ... Marlins SS Rafael Furcal (left hamstring strain) moved his rehab assignment from Single-A Jupiter to Double-A Jacksonville.
