Associated Press - Cody Ross can see clearly now, so he must have had a nice view as his decisive pinch-hit home run sailed into the left-field seats.
Ross' three-run shot in the eighth inning spoiled an outstanding outing by Miami's young Jose Fernandez, and the Arizona Diamondbacks held off the Marlins 3-1 on Wednesday to take two of three in the series.
Fernandez (4-4) retired 14 in a row before walking two of the three batters he faced in the eighth. He was relieved by left-hander Mike Dunn, who gave up the home run to Ross on a 1-2 pitch. Justin Ruggiano homered off Heath Bell to start the ninth.
Bell flirted with bigger trouble before recording his 13th save in 15 tries. After Ruggiano's homer, Ed Lucas singled to bring up Giancarlo Stanton, whose home run off Bell on Friday gave Miami a 3-2 victory. Stanton walked on five pitches to put runners on first and second with no outs.
Bell got Marcell Ozuna on a flyout, catcher Miguel Montero made a nice sliding catch of Derek Dietrich's foul to the screen and pinch-hitter Logan Morrison struck out to give Arizona two of three against Miami.
David Hernandez (4-4) pitched a scoreless eighth to get the victory. Fernandez, the 20-year-old Cuban refugee and a first-round draft pick in 2011, was charged with two runs on three hits with four strikeouts and those two costly late walks in 7 1/3 innings.
