After he settled in, the Dodgers got to Koehler again in the fourth. With one out, former Cardinal Skip Schumaker doubled to right field, and catcher Tim Federowicz followed with a single. Nick Punto subsequently hit a sacrifice fly to center, increasing the Dodgers' lead to two.
Manager Mike Redmond finally went to his bullpen and took Koehler out of the game in the sixth. Over his five innings, he gave up seven hits and two runs with one walk and a strikeout.
Despite the fact that Koehler kept Miami in the game, the Marlins struggled to score runs off of former Met Chris Capuano. Capuano was able to keep the Marlins scoreless for most of the day - before center fielder Justin Ruggiano hit a solo home run with one out in the sixth to make it a 2-1 game.
Following Koehler's departure, Miami's bullpen had a hard time recording outs. Lefty Mike Dunn replaced Jon Rauch with runners on first and third and nobody out in the seventh, and gave up RBI singles to Carl Crawford and Van Slyke and a sacrifice fly to Andre Eithier to make it a 5-1 contest.
The Marlins have an off day Monday before they host Cincinnati for a three game series at Marlins Park beginning Tuesday. Jeff Mathis is expected to be activated from the disabled list before the game.
