A day after having Joe Saunders pitch a shutout, they got a strong outing from Ian Kennedy, but the Arizona Diamondbacks offense could not muster anything after the first inning . They put up two first inning runs, but did not get a hit after the second inning. Then the Miami Marlins put up single runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings to come away with a walkoff 3-2 win over Arizona.
In the top of the first inning, Willie Bloomquist led off the game with a double and scored when Gerado Parra followed up with a double of his own. Miguel Montero singled him home, and that was it for the scoring for the Diamondbacks. The only other baserunners for them were a pair of walks.
Miami starter Anibal Sanchez struck out 14 in seven innings.
In the ninth, Brad Zeigler was the man on the mound for Arizona. Giancarlo Stanton singled and went to second on a fielder's choice. The D-backs elected to intentionally walk Jose Reyes to pitch to Hanley Ramirez, who was mired in an 0-26 slump. Ramirez singled to left to end the game.
The win went to Steve Chisek, while the loss went to Zeigler.
The two teams play again Sunday morning.
