Diamondbacks Vs. Marlins Score: Miami Beat Up In 8-4 Loss

Getting just one hit through the first eight innings, the Marlins struggled on both sides of play in their 8-4 loss to the Diamondbacks Sunday afternoon.

After Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley held the Marlins without a hit for the first five innings, the Diamondbacks put the game out of reach with a five-run six inning. Jason Kubel and Cody Ransom each had two-run doubles that were the big blow.

Miley ended the day allowing just one hit in 6.1 innings while striking out six. The Marlins finally got on the board when Gincarlo Stanton came through with an RBI groundout.

His mound opponent, Josh Johnson, struggled tremendously, allowing five runs on 10 hits and striking out eight batters in 5.1 innings. Mike Dunn did not help matters in relief, coming in for Johnson and allowing two runs in .2 innings.

The Marlins did make some waves with a three-run ninth inning, highlighted by a three-run home run by Stanton.

The Marlins return to action on Monday afternoon in the fourth and final game of their series with the Diamondbacks.

Diamondbacks Vs. Marlins Score Update: Wade Miley With No-Hitter Through Five Innings For Arizona

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley has had no problems with the Miami Marlins on Sunday, as he has yet to allow a hit through five innings. With the exception of a walk issued to Omar Infante, Miley has been perfect and has struck out five batters. He is at 66 pitches through five innings.

Marlins starter Josh Johnson has struggled, allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks through five innings. His eight strikeouts have been encouraging, but when Diamondbacks batters have connected, it has resulted in base runners.

Arizona broke the scoring open in the second inning today when Gerardo Parra singled home Miley. A pair of RBI singles by Jason Kubel and Miguel Montero in the top of the fifth brought the score to 3-0.
