during the 10th inning to lead the Miami Marlins over the Arizona
Diamondbacks, 5-4, in the opener of a four-game set.
Garrett Jones worked a leadoff walk off Bradin Hagens (0-1), who was making
his MLB debut, in the bottom of the 10th. Jeff Mathis followed with a single
to right before Ozuna's RBI double to center decided the game.
"I just struggled with my command," Hagens said. "Kind of trying to hit the
corners too much instead of attacking the zone."
Giancarlo Stanton finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and Adeiny Hechavarria tripled
and drove in two runs for the Marlins, who have won five of their last seven
Mike Dunn (10-5) earned the win after tossing perfect ninth and 10th innings
with three strikeouts. Dunn now leads the majors in wins by a reliever with
10 and set a franchise record for wins in a season by a reliever.
"To see him get a good at-bat and finish it off was huge," Marlins manager
Mike Redmond said of Ozuna. "You just have to win. It doesn't matter how you

each brought in a run for Arizona, which has dropped three of its last four.
Brad Ziegler walked Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ozuna with two outs in the
eighth. Hechavarria hit a grounder up the middle that deflected off the glove
of a diving Cliff Pennington into center field for the game-tying RBI single.
Christian Yelich opened the ninth with an infield single off Hagens. Yelich
moved to second on Donovan Solano's sacrifice bunt and Hagens intentionally
walked Stanton, but Casey McGehee grounded into a 4-6-3 double play to send
the game into extras.
Ender Inciarte walked to open the game, stole second on Pennington's
strikeout, advanced to third after Peralta lined out and scored the game's
first run on Trumbo's RBI single to left.
Arizona added two more runs in the third. Pennington worked a two-out walk and
hustled home on Peralta's triple that Stanton misplayed in center field.
Trumbo brought home Peralta with a grounder up the middle for a 3-0 lead, but
Miami countered with two runs in the home half.
Brad Penny doubled with one out and moved to third on Yelich's groundout.
Solano ripped an RBI double down the left-field line and Stanton brought him
home with a single to center.
Yelich and Stanton both singled to place runners on the corners with two outs
in the fifth, but McGehee grounded out to leave them stranded.
Miguel Montero's RBI double off the left-field wall during the sixth ended
Penny's outing and gave the Diamondbacks a 4-2 lead. Penny gave up four runs
on five hits and three walks over five-plus innings in the no-decision.
