Recap: Miami vs. Arizona

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Ricky Nolasco dazzled Arizona hitters over eight- plus innings to lead the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks to avoid a three-game series sweep.

Nolasco (3-5) gave up one run on five hits while striking out a season-high 11 batters to snap a three-start losing streak. Mike Dunn got out of a bases- loaded jam in the ninth to earn his first save of the season.

Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run double and Derek Dietrich and Adeiny Hechavarria each scored a run for the Marlins, who had dropped seven straight games entering the series.

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a double and scored a run and Jason Kubel drove in the lone run for the D'backs, who had won four straight games entering the contest.

Wade Miley (3-3) was tagged with the loss after giving up both runs on five hits while striking out six over six innings.

Ozuna's two-run double in the sixth put the Marlins in front 2-0. Hechavarria singled then moved to third on Dietrich's base hit. Ozuna followed with his double off the wall in left, scoring both runners easily.

"Fastball right down the middle," Miley said of Ozuna's hit. "I was trying to go away and didn't get it out there and he did a great job of capitalizing. I just missed my spot."

It was the biggest inning the Marlins had since scoring a pair of runs in the ninth inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 12.

"We got two runs. That was just what we needed," said Nolasco.

Gregorius opened the ninth inning with a double, chasing Nolasco from the game. The Marlins called on Steve Cishek, who was able to get Paul Goldschmidt to ground out.

"I wanted to finish it, but at the same time, we've got Cishek down there," said Nolasco. "Fourth time around the lineup, and those guys seeing me. It was a good decision to make."

Gregorius, though, moved to third on the play before scoring on Kubel's sacrifice fly to deep left field.

Eric Chavez followed with a pinch-hit single then moved to second on a Martin Prado walk. Cishek was replaced by Mike Dunn, who walked Miguel Montero to load the bases with two outs, but was able to get A.J. Pollock to ground out to Hechavarria at short to end the game.
