Marlins' Hechavarria Doubles Home Game-Winner

Adeiny Hechavarria doubled home the game-winning run in the eighth inning on Wednesday

The Miami Marlins beat the Pittsburgh Pirates by a final score of 3-2 on Wednesday at Marlins Park.

Adeiny Hechavarria's sixth double of the season brought home the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning. The two-base hit knocked in Miguel Rojas who had pinch-ran for Derek Dietrich. Miami had led 2-0 earlier in the game before the Pirates tied the game. Hechavarria's hit allowed the Marlins to avoid a tough loss.

Dietrich was lifted from the game after being hit with a pitch. The 26-year old was immediately removed from the game with an arm injury and could potentially miss extended time.

Adam Conley was cruising until the sixth inning when he ran into trouble. Conley took a no-hitter into that sixth frame, but had a high pitch count. It appeared the lefty may have run out of energy, but he battled to finish the inning without allowing a run.

Conley ended up pitching six shutout innings in which he struck out a career-high nine while walking three. Miami's game-winning run came late which left Conley with a no-decision in this one. Conley now has a 3.72 E.R.A this season.

The win went to David Phelps who provided Miami with 1.2 solid innings of relief work. In the ninth, A.J. Ramos finished off the game and now has 17 saves on the season.

The four-game series will come to an end on Thursday when Wei-Yin Chen makes the start for Miami.
