Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Derek Dietrich's first career home run was
a three-run blast that helped the Miami Marlins get by the struggling Los
Angeles Dodgers, 5-4, in the opener of a three-game series.
Juan Pierre had two hits and drove in the go-ahead run for the Marlins, who
had just been swept by the Padres and dropped six of eight games coming in.
Jose Fernandez (2-2) shook off a shaky start and lasted six innings. The 20-
year-old righty gave up three runs and eight hits and struck out seven to earn
his second straight victory.
Adrian Gonzalez smacked a three-run homer and A.J. Ellis went 3-for-4 with an
RBI, but it wasn't enough to stop the Dodgers' seven-game slide.
Los Angeles sent its own rookie starter to the mound in Matt Magill, who
allowed three runs on three hits and walked four over five innings.
