MIAMI – Marlins pitcher Jose Urena nearly tossed a complete game Sunday to help Miami take the weekend series against the Dodgers 3-0.

Christian Yelich led the way for the Marlins offense, going two-for-four at the plate.

Yelich singled in a score in the fourth inning to start the scoring for the Fish. 

A.J. Ramos needed to get only one out to earn his 34th save of the season.
