MLB Scores: Miami Marlins 2, Arizona Diamondbacks 1

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Marlins came back to defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Tuesday night. Marcell Ozuna's ninth inning two run home run gave the Marlins a lead that would not be lost.

Miami hasn't taken advantage of the spaciousness of Chase Field in recent years, but on Tuesday night, an offensive outburst wasn't necessary.

A Marcell Ozuna two-run home run to center field against Addison Reed gave the Marlins a two run lead that would not be lost.

Ed Lucas walked to open the ninth, and after Reed retired Giancarlo Stanton and Casey McGehee, Ozuna took a two strike pitch to center for his 15th home run of the season.

Brad Hand, after working around defensive miscues, settled in and turned in a quality start for the Marlins.

Arizona's lone run came in the bottom of the fifth, when an Aaron Hill RBI single with runners on first and second and nobody out gave the Diamondbacks a one run lead.

In six and a third innings, Hand yielded one unearned run while walking and striking out a pair.

Miami had difficulty against Diamondbacks starter Vidal Nuno, who pitched seven scoreless innings while walking one and striking out seven in his Arizona debut.

Sam Dyson, Bryan Morris and Mike Dunn pitched well in relief of Hand before Steve Cishek worked a scoreless bottom of the ninth.
