Logan Morrison hit an RBI single to account for Miami's other run.

Tom Koehler (3-6) tossed six innings for the Marlins, allowing five hits and five walks.

"It was a battle for him too," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said of Koehler. "He pitched out of quite a few jams."

Jake Marisnick made a great diving catch in center field to rob Marlon Byrd of a base hit and then doubled David Wright off first to end a New York threat in the fifth inning.

Juan Pierre, who entered the game as the pinch-hitter for Koehler, and Christian Yelich started off the sixth inning with a pair of singles to place men at first and third.

Harvey then hit Ed Lucas on the left wrist to load the bases before Solano blooped a single to right to score Yelich and Morrison.
