The Marlins won for the 10th time in the past 11 games, and climbed three games above .500 for the first time since June 2014. The Diamondbacks lost their sixth game in a row.

Christian Yelich hit a two-run homer, and Derek Dietrich and Chris Johnson had two-out RBI hits. Giancarlo Stanton went 2 for 3 with a double and scored a run.

Conley (2-1) gave up two hits in 5 1/3 innings and departed after throwing 88 pitches. The left-hander allowed no hits in 7 2/3 shutout innings last Friday before being taken out of the game at Milwaukee when his pitch count reached 116.

A.J. Ramos completed the five-hitter by pitching the ninth, lowering his ERA to 0.73.

Miami’s bullpen pitched 10 2/3 shutout innings in the series.

Robbie Ray (1-2) allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings for Arizona.

It was Miami’s first outdoor victory at home this year. On a 74-degree night, the retractable roof at Marlins Park was open for only the second time this season.

Miami scored in the second on Dietrich’s RBI single. Johnson made it 2-0 with a run-scoring double in the fourth. Yelich hit a two-run homer in the eighth, his third.

Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt went 0 for 4, struck out twice and grounded into a double play, lowering his average to .232.


Marlins: 1B Justin Bour again sat out after dislocating his left pinkie Tuesday. He’ll try to hit Friday, and his status remains day to day.

Diamondbacks: 2B Jean Segura returned to the lineup after missing three games with a sore hip, and he went 2 for 4.

Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke (2-2, 5.50) is set to start Friday’s series opener at Atlanta against Aaron Blair (0-1, 3.18).
