Bats Go Bye-Bye, D-backs Can't Muster Any Runs In 2-0 Loss To Marlins

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) – Jorge Cantu and Dan Uggla knocked in runs and six Marlins pitchers combined for a shutout in a 2-0 triumph over the Diamondbacks to earn a split of this four-game series.

Alex Sanabia made his first major league start and lasted 3 1/3 innings, allowing five hits and walking one with two strikeouts. Burke Badenhop (1-5) got the final out of the fourth on a double-play ball with the bases loaded to earn the win.

Brian Sanches came on to pitch the next two frames and Jose Veras, Clay Hensley and Leo Nunez worked an inning each to close out the game. It landed Nunez his 20th save of the year for Florida, which at 42-46 sits fourth in the NL East, 10 games behind the first-place Braves.

Arizona’s Barry Enright (1-2), making his third career start, went five innings and gave up both Florida runs on four hits with one walk and three strikeouts.

Chris Young, Kelly Johnson and Justin Upton had two hits apiece for the Diamondbacks, who have the third-worst record in the majors at 34-55.
