CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Zambrano pitched seven strong innings to help the Miami Marlins open interleague play by beating the Cleveland Indians 3-2 Friday night.

Miami broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by Hanley Ramirez. All three Marlins runs were scored by batters who had started rallies with walks.

Zambrano (2-2) gave up four hits and two runs as he continued a strong first season in Miami after 11 years with the Chicago Cubs. The right-hander has a 1.96 ERA in eight starts since being acquired in a January trade.

Heath Bell worked the ninth for his fourth save in eight chances.

Reliever Tony Sipp (0-2) took the loss as Cleveland had a four-game winning streak broken.
