After Tom Koehler struggled on Friday night, Jacob Turner was effective in a 2-1 Marlins win on Saturday afternoon.

Miami got on the board first against Brewers starter Wily Peralta in the bottom of the second inning. Casey McGehee singled to open the frame, and after Garrett Jones lined out, Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a double down the right field line to give the Marlins a 1-0 advantage.

Milwaukee appeared to tie the game in the top of the sixth against Turner, but Carlos Gomez was throw out at third base before Ryan Braun crossed home plate, keeping it a 1-0 game.

In six and a third innings, Turner gave up eight hits but didn't yield a run while walking one and striking out two. Turner created several opportunities for the Brewers, but was able to pitch around runners in scoring position.

Adeiny Hechavarria opened the bottom of the seventh with a single, and after stealing second base, scored on a Jeff Baker pinch-hit RBI single that gave Miami a two run edge.

Jonathan Lucroy got the Brewers on the board with an RBI double against A.J. Ramos in the top of the eighth, but Steve Cishek earned a four out save and secured the win for the Marlins. Mike Dunn was efficient in two thirds of an inning in relief.

Miami's defense was solid, with Adeiny Hechavarria turning a key double play and Derek Dietrich and Casey McGehee each making key diving stops.
