Fernandez pitches Marlins past Mets

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) — Jose Fernandez pitched seven scoreless innings and had two hits with an RBI to help the Miami Marlins past the New York Mets 8-1 on Saturday.

Fernandez (3-3) allowed just three hits and struck out eight to give the Marlins their fourth winning streak of the season. Miami has won two straight games three times and three in a row once.

Fernandez retired his final 11 hitters and struck out the side in the seventh. He also had an RBI single in in the second, and doubled and scored in the seventh.

Chris Coghlan had three hits, including two run-scoring singles. Derek Dietrich had a two-run single in a four-run seventh that made it 8-0.

Collin McHugh (0-1) gave up four runs and six hits in four-plus innings. He walked three and struck out one in his first start of the season.

Omar Quintanilla had two of the Mets' hits. Pinch hitter Justin Turner delivered a run-scoring double off Dan Jennings in the eighth.

Coghlan's two-out single in the first scored Placido Polanco from second to give Miami a 1-0 lead. Polanco crossed the plate before Dietrich was thrown out at third by center fielder Rick Ankiel.

Miami went ahead 2-0 in the second when Fernandez singled to score Jeff Mathis from first base. Mathis walked with two outs, and scored when Fernandez lined a single into deep left-center.

The Marlins scored twice in the fourth to go ahead 4-0. Coghlan and Greg Dobbs opened with singles. Adeiny Hechavarria delivered a sacrifice fly and Mathis tripled in Dobbs.

Fernandez was coming off his shortest outing of the season. He surrendered seven runs — four earned — in 3 1-3 innings at Tampa Bay on May 27.

Miami had lost nine in a row and 16 of 18 before winning Friday night.

NOTES: It was Fernandez's third start against the Mets and his first with a decision. ... Marcell Ozuna's 16-game hitting streak ended. He went 0-for-3 with a walk. ... New York RHP Matt Harvey (5-0, 1.85) opposes RHP Kevin Slowey (1-5, 3.59) in Sunday's series finale. ... Mets pinch-hitter Marlon Byrd singled in the eighth for his 1,100 career hit.
