Diamondbacks 9, Marlins 2

The Diamondbacks took the first game of their series with the Marlins in commanding fashion Friday night, winning 9-2. Paul Goldschmidt and Eric Chavez did a lot of the damage at the plates for the Diamondbacks, both going 4 for 5 and supplying back to back home runs in the first inning. Goldschmidt hit a second home run in the third inning, capping off a thirteen pitch at-bat. Meanwhile, Martin Prado showed signs of continuing to fight his way out of his recent slump, going 3 for 5.

On the mound, Trevor Cahill fought to find his control in the early going, walking four batters across the first three innings, but kept the Marlins to only five hits and one run in eight innings to earn his third win of the season. Once he hit his stride, Cahill sent down thirteen batters in row, between a walk with no outs in the second and allowing a one-out single in the seventh. Cahill also got the Marlins to hit into three double plays, sometimes at crucial moments early in the game. Will Harris came in to finish out the ninth, giving up one run.
