The Miami Marlins fell behind early in their 6-0 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday at Chase Field.
The Diamondbacks won the series with the victory in the finale and dropped Miami's record to 32-31. The Marlins remain in third place in the National League East with a three-game lead on fourth.
Arizona posted four runs in the first inning and added another run in the second inning. The quick and effective offense for the Diamondbacks was coupled with a good pitching effort. Miami was unable to mount any type of comeback attempt for the duration of the game.
Adam Conley had one of his worst starts as a big leaguer in the loss. The lefty allowed six runs (five earned) in his five innings on the mound. Arizona had 11 hits against Conley who also walked one and struck out a pair. Conley is now 3-4 on the year with a 4.13 E.R.A.
Giancarlo Stanton had another 0-3 day and saw his batting average fall to 192. Stanton has been unable to end a long slump and also added another strikeout to season totals.
Miami's three hits in the game were singles with one each coming from Martin Prado, Chris Johnson and Miguel Rojas.
The Marlins will open a series in San Diego on Monday with Wei-Yin Chen on the mound.
