PHOENIX – Jacob Stallings hit a key single, and the Miami Marlins used an eight-run ninth inning to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-3.

The Marlins controlled most of the game until the eighth, when D-backs pinch-hitter Jordan Luplow hit a tying two-run homer off Steven Okert.

Miami responded quickly against the D-backs bullpen, starting a rally that included two three-run homers.

The Marlins avoided a three-game sweep and won for just the second time in their past 11 games.

The D-backs had their three-game winning streak snapped.
