Diamondbacks K-O'd by Marlins pitching

PHOENIX -

The Miami Marlins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 on Wednesday night at Chase Field as the Snakes continue to slump, losing for the eighth time in nine games since reaching the .500 mark.

Arizona stranded 11 runners in the game, none more painful than the final five over the last two innings.

The Diamondbacks had runners at second and third with no outs in the 8th and failed to score.

They loaded the bases with no outs in the 9th but Marlins reliever A.J. Ramos wiggled out of the jam striking out the Diamondbacks two all-stars Paul Goldschmidt and A.J. Pollock before fanning Welington Castillo to end the game.

Arizona’s last five outs in the game came by way of strikeout. They struck out 16 times in the game.

The loss dropped the Diamondbacks to seven games under .500, nine and half games out in the N.L. West and seven and half games back in the Wild Card race.
