    Jacob Turner won for the first time since July 2013 on Saturday

    Jacob Turner had not won since July of last year prior to Saturday's 2-1 Miami Marlins victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

    Turner is now 1-2 on the year to go along with a 5.35 E.R.A. Turner did have several solid starts in the second half of 2013 but a lack of run support kept him out of the win column. This season has mostly been a struggle for Turner but he has turned it around as of late. The 23-year old struck out two, walked one and allowed eight hits in 6.1 shutout innings pitched.

    The lone run scored by the Brewers came off of A.J. Ramos in the eighth inning. Ramos was not at his best and was lifted in favor of closer Steve Cishek with two outs. It was not all Ramos' fault however as he should've been out of the inning sooner. A Jarrod Saltalamacchia throwing error extended the frame.

    Cishek struck out the only batter he opposed in the eighth and then waited for the ninth to complete the save. The closer did just that striking out a pair in the ninth for his tenth save of the season.

    The Marlins scored a run in the second inning and then another in the seventh. That late run came courtesy of pinch-hitter Jeff Baker who singled home a run in his lone at-bat. There were two extra-base hits for Miami in the game and both were doubles. Saltalamacchia doubled for the eighth time while Christian Yelich added his seventh.

    Miami can take the series on Sunday with a win and Randy Wolf will make his first start as a member of the Marlins.
