MIAMI (AP) — Martin Prado hit a two-out, bases-loaded single in the 13th inning, and the Miami Marlins won for the first time in Dan Jennings’ six games as manager, beating Baltimore 1-0 on Saturday night.
The Marlins broke an eight-game losing streak and improved to 1-8 on their homestand.
Five Miami relievers combined to pitch the final seven innings while allowing only two baserunners. Carter Capps (1-0) struck out six in three innings.
Orioles reliever Brian Matusz left the game in the 12th after the umpire crew chief inspected the left-hander’s right forearm. The issue was raised by Jennings, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter didn’t argue.
Adeiny Hechavarria walked to start the 13th against T.J. McFarland (0-1), and he took third on a two-out single by Marcell Ozuna. Giancarlo Stanton was then intentionally walked to load the bases.
Prado lined a 1-1 pitch into right-center field and was mobbed by his teammates, while a grinning Jennings traded hugs with his coaching staff.
Baltimore’s Mike Wright allowed three hits in seven scoreless innings and has yet to give up a run through 14 innings in two career starts. The last of his 98 pitches was a 96 mph fastball to strike out Michael Morse with runners at the corners to end the seventh.
Wright scoreless streak to begin his career is the longest by an Orioles pitcher since Dave Ford started with 15 consecutive shutout innings in 1978, according to STATS.
Drake, recalled before the game from Triple-A Norfolk, pitched three scoreless innings in his major league debut.
The Orioles went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position, with the only hit by Wright.
Miami center fielder Marcell Ozuna kept the game scoreless in the sixth when he threw out Travis Snider trying to score from second on Wright’s two-out single, the first career hit for the pitcher.
Major league RBI leader Giancarlo Stanton went 0 for 4 for Miami and is 6 for 36 (.167) on the homestand.
With two out in the 10th, Miami’s Adeiny Hechavarria tried to score from third when a pitch rolled away from catcher Caleb Joseph. He scrambled to retrieve it and toss to pitcher Oliver Drake, who tagged Hechavarria out, sending the game to the 11th.
Dan Haren threw six scoreless innings for the Marlins and departed for a pinch-hitter after throwing 115 pitches.
Orioles RHP Bud Norris (bronchitis) will make his second rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Bowie.
RHP Miguel Gonzalez (5-2, 3.24) is scheduled to start the series finale Sunday for the Orioles against RHP Tom Koehler (2-3, 3.70).
