The Miami Marlins came from behind to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 on Tuesday.
Trailing by three runs in the bottom of the sixth, Miami posted four runs to take the lead. The big hit of the inning came courtesy of Ichiro Suzuki who was appearing as a pinch-hitter. Suzuki hit a two-run single up the middle to give Miami the lead.
The victory was the eighth for Miami in its last nine games. It was also a positive sign that the Marlins won right after their long winning streak came to an end. Often times, teams will lose multiple games following a long win streak.
Miami's offense was clicking in this one with eight hits including two home runs. Marcell Ozuna homered for a third straight game and now has five blasts this season. Christian Yelich also left the yard for the second time this season.
The game was started by Justin Nicolino who didn't have the best of days but still came away with the win to improve to 2-0. Nicolino allowed four runs on seven hits in his six innings. The lefty walked three and recorded no strikeouts.
A.J. Ramos worked the ninth for his eighth save of the year. Miami's bullpen combined for three scoreless innings.
Jose Fernandez will get the ball on Wednesday as Miami tries for a second straight win and the series victory.
