Miley Pitches Arizona Past Marlins, 8-4
MIAMI (AP) — Unbeaten Wade Miley held the Miami Marlins hitless until the sixth inning, and Jason Kubel drove in three runs to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to an 8-4 victory Sunday.
Miley (3-0) gave up one hit and an unearned run in 6 1-3 innings to lower his ERA to 1.29. He also singled and scored the game’s first run.
The retractable roof over the Marlins’ new ballpark averted a rainout, because showers fell all day. But even inside, it was a gloomy afternoon for the home team, and boos rained down from the crowd of 34,918 during Arizona’s five-run sixth inning.
The Marlins trailed 8-0 before they managed their first hit in the sixth inning, a leadoff double by John Buck. Miami has lost seven of its past eight games.
