MIAMI (AP) -- Hanley Ramirez hit the first home run for the Miami Marlins in their new ballpark Tuesday night, and their split squad beat the University of Miami Hurricanes 7-6.

Ramirez homered into the first row of the right-field seats off Alexander Fernandez, the son of former Marlins pitcher Alex Fernandez.

The spring training game was the first of four in the ballpark for the Marlins.

Four-time All-Star Mark Buehrle, making his first start for the Marlins, gave up three runs in three innings. He retired the first seven batters but allowed hits to the next four.

Ramirez got a workout at third base, totaling one putout and three assists, and said he's comfortable with the position after moving from shortstop to make room for newcomer Jose Reyes.
