The Miami Marlins had no offense, except for one big swing. And that was enough to spoil a brilliant Arizona debut by Vidal Nuno.
David Peralta was impressing the Arizona Diamondbacks so much at the Double-A level that they decided to promote him to the big club June 1. He’s surpassed any expectations heaped upon him thus far.
One day after losing to Arizona 1-o, Ricky Nolasco struck out 11 and the Marlins stopped a season-high seven-game losing streak by beating the Diamondbacks 2-1 Sunday.
Facing an offensively challenged Miami Marlins team that’s been particularly bad against left-handers lately, Wade Miley appears to be in a good spot to rebound from his worst outing of the season.

It turns out a trip to Miami may have been just what the Arizona Diamondbacks needed to heat up their bats.
