PHOENIX (AP) — Michael Bourn homered to start a four-run sixth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks ended Jose Fernandez’s streak of eight consecutive victories by beating the Miami Marlins 5-3 on Saturday night.
Fernandez (9-3) retired the first 17 batters he faced before giving up five straight hits and lost for the first time since April 23. The four runs were the most Fernandez has allowed in a game since that loss, a 7-2 defeat at San Francisco. He struck out eight with no walks.
Zack Godley (1-0), called up from Triple-A Reno to make the start, gave up two runs on four hits in six innings, with two strikeouts and three walks. Brad Ziegler escaped a ninth-inning jam for his 40th save in a row, 12 of them this year.
Adeiny Hechavarria and Marcell Ozuna homered for the Marlins. Martin Prado had four hits, including a triple.
