MIAMI (AP) — Josh Johnson allowed two hits in seven innings and drove in the first two runs to help the Florida Marlins beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0 Tuesday night.

Johnson (3-0) lowered his ERA to 1.00. He has allowed four hits or less in each of his four starts, and batters are hitting .112 against him.

The right-hander has never thrown a shutout in 108 career starts, and he was pulled by manager Edwin Rodriguez after throwing 98 pitches, 64 for strikes.

Mike Dunn and Brian Sanches each worked one perfect inning to complete the two-hitter against a team that came into the game with the highest road batting average in the NL.
