Recap: Miami vs. San Diego

Miami, FL ( - Giancarlo Stanton drove in two runs and Jose Fernandez fired 6 2/3 scoreless innings as the surging Miami Marlins took care of the San Diego Padres, 5-0, on Saturday in the middle test of a three-game set from Marlins Park.

Fernandez (2-0) dazzled in his second start of the season, allowing just five baserunners while striking out eight. The reigning National League Rookie of the Year has allowed just a run with 17 strikeouts through 12 2/3 innings this season.

"That's who I am, I like to keep pitching," Fernandez said of getting pulled in the seventh. "I'm feeling great. The bullpen did a great job like always."

Stanton was one of four Marlins with two hits, with Derek Dietrich and Christian Yelich both posting two hits and an RBI. Miami improved to 5-1 on the young season.

Andrew Cashner (0-1) went six innings for the Padres, scattering five hits and three walks while surrendering two runs.

"I thought I threw the ball real well," said Cashner. "I had a couple of walks that could have gone either way."

Both starters struck out four over the first two innings, yielding just a hit apiece. San Diego threatened first, loading the bases on Fernandez in the third inning with just one out, but the young righty induced a 4-6-3 double play on the first pitch he threw to Seth Smith to escape the inning unscathed.

Miami broke through with a run in the third. With two on and two outs, Stanton smacked a sharp grounder that deflected off Chase Headley's glove at third and into left field, plating Fernandez. Fernandez reached on a fielder's choice earlier in the frame.

Dietrich's two-out single to right in the sixth inning plated Garrett Jones for a 2-0 Miami edge.

Fernandez left the game after Alexi Amarista struck out swinging but reached first on a wild pitch with two gone in the seventh inning. A.J. Ramos took his place on the hill and fanned Yasmani Grandal to preserve the 2-0 lead.

The Marlins put another run across in the seventh on a Stanton RBI double and added two more in the eighth. Facing reliever Joaquin Benoit, Reed Johnson brought a run in with a pinch-hit sacrifice fly to left and Yelich slapped a single up the middle for a 5-0 margin.

Carlos Marmol allowed runners to reach second and third in the ninth, but Xavier Nady grounded out to second to end the game.
