MIAMI (AP) — Left fielder Marcell Ozuna cut down the potential tying run at the plate in the eighth and ninth innings — including Kirk Nieuwenhuis to end the game — to help the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-2 on Friday night.

Ozuna threw out Nieuwenhuis, who was trying to score on Chris Young’s fly ball to left field. He also got David Wright in the eighth when the Mets cut the deficit to 3-2.

Adeiny Hechavarria drove in two runs for the Marlins.

Henderson Alvarez (4-3) pitched 6 1-3 scoreless innings, allowing seven hits without a walk and struck out five. In his past six starts, he is 2-0 with a 0.68 ERA.

Steve Cishek allowed a double to Nieuwenhuis to open the ninth, but earned his 17th save in 18 chances when Ozuna’s throw landed in catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s glove.
