Arizona Diamondbacks Lose Lead, Game On Hanley Ramirez Hit, Fall To Marlins 3-2

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.

The Marlins scored in the seventh on a triple by Omar Infante and a single by Jose Reyes. In the eighth, David Hernandez gave up a homer to Logan Morrison.

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.
