PHOENIX - Marcell Ozuna hit a two-out, two-run home run off Addison Reed in the ninth inning to spoil a brilliant Arizona debut by Vidal Nuno and give the Miami Marlins a 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Ozuna hit Reeds 2-2 pitch off the batters eye far above the 407-foot sign in straightaway centre. It was the fifth blown save in 25 tries for Reed (1-5) and the ninth home run the closer has allowed in 38 appearances. Nuno, acquired in the deal that sent Brandon McCarthy to the New York Yankees, gave up three hits, struck out a career-high seven and walked one in seven innings. He scored Arizonas only run. Mike Dunn (7-4) pitched one-third of an inning to get the victory. Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth for his 20th save in 22 opportunities. Miamis Brad Hand allowed an unearned run and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings but failed to win as a starter for the 14th consecutive time, the third-longest active streak in the majors. Hands last victory as a starter came almost three years ago to the day, on July 7, 2011, against Houston. After Brad Ziegler pitched a scoreless eighth, Reed came on and walked Ed Lucas to start the ninth. Giancarlo Stanton struck out and Casey McGehee lined out to centre to bring up Ozuna for his game-winning heroics. The game ended when Paul Goldschmidt, the NLs starting first baseman in the All-Star Game, flied out to deep right. The Diamondbacks were 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position and left 11 on base. The only Miami player to reach second against Nuno was Ozuna when he doubled with two outs in the fourth. Nuno reached when McGehee muffed a grounder, the third basemans second error and one of four by Miami. Ender Inciartis bunt single past the mound put runners at first and second with no outs. Aaron Hill followed with an RBI single. Goldschmidt grounded into a double play and, after Martin Prado walked, Cody Ross grounded out to strand the runner at third. The Diamondbacks stranded runners at second and third in the first, second and sixth innings. In the second, Nuno — not accustomed to batting because hes been in the AL — laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt to advance the runners. But Inciarti grounded sharply to short to end the threat. Another nice sacrifice bunt by Nuno moved runners to second and third with two outs in the sixth. NOTES: Goldschmidt hit his major league-leading 34th double. ... Arizona OF Mark Trumbo, who hit a grand slam in his rehab appearance with Triple-A Reno on Monday night, is expected to join the Diamondbacks after the All-Star break. Hes been out since April 22 with a left foot stress fracture. ... In the series finale on Wednesday, the Marlins send Nathan Eovaldi (5-4, 3.75 ERA) to the mound against the Diamondbacks Josh Collmenter (7-5, 3.98). Blake Comeau Jersey . Dallas (2-0-1) sits atop the Western Conference with an MLS-best seven points. Castillo opened the scoring in the 71st minute off a Mauro Diaz set piece, and Watson outran defender Tony Lochhead on a long ball and then juked goalkeeper Ian Kennedy for the eventual game-winner in the 78th minute. Tyson Jost Jersey . -- The Chicago Bears agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract with defensive lineman Israel Idonije and are bringing him back for a second stint. ... as-Jersey/. It was my fifth straight year attending and, as always, there are many interesting matters discussed as it pertains to the use of statistics in sports. Anton Lindholm Jersey . - Mike Zimmer has brought a demanding style to the Minnesota Vikings. J.T. Compher Jersey . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, it doesnt appear the offer was warmly received by the team. Blue Jackets director of hockey operations John Davidson and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said on Wednesday the team has made offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years but each one was refused by the restricted free agent centre and agent Kurt Overhardt.FRISCO, Texas - Jason Spezza wont deny that his arrival in Dallas helped create expectations that the Stars struggled to meet early in the season.Hes just glad the weight wasnt enough to ruin the season before the Stars reached the All-Star break.When youre a team that makes the playoffs and then you add a couple of pieces, the expectations take another step, said Spezza, who came in along with Ales Hemsky on the first day of free agency last summer, giving Dallas more firepower to go with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn.Sometimes it doesnt work like that right off the hop, he said. And weve kind of had a wishy-washy first half, but fortunately find ourselves not too far on the outside with a chance here to make some ground in the second half.Seguin is tied for the NHL lead in goals with 28, and the Stars are fourth in scoring. But Dallas had the worst defence in the league before improvement at the blue line in recent weeks.The net result: The Stars return from the break with a visit to Montreal on Tuesday night, four points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference after ending a five-year playoff drought last season. They believe 11 wins in the past 18 games are a better indicator of their worth than just 10 victories in the first 28.We lost a few games and maybe thats part of the reason we couldnt get our traction back there for a little while, said Alex Goligoski, a veteran of several offseasons without any expectations in Dallas. Thats all history. I think weve settled in pretty nice now and its a 36-game season.Dallas had a seven-game losing skid to finnish the first month, and allowed five goals each time during another four-game skid.ddddddddddddEven when the Stars surged before the break, coach Lindy Ruff left the impression that Kari Lehtonen wasnt a lock as his top goalie. Lehtonens save percentage is the highest since his first full season nine years ago, and his goals-against average is his worst in six seasons in Dallas.While Lehtonen has shown improvement despite getting pulled from a game against Ottawa that Dallas won two weeks ago, whats saving him the most is that backup Anders Lindback hasnt been much better.Kari is still my guy, Ruff said. Its a tough place to be because hes the reason a lot of times when were winning games and theres been some nights hes had some tough ones go in and its probably the reason weve lost.Spezzas scoring pace is off significantly, and Hemsky didnt get his first goal until the 22nd game after the pair averaged about a point per game in a brief stint together in Ottawa last season.While Seguin is second in the NHL with 52 points, Benns scoring is down and Ruff has tinkered at times with his top lines trying to find the right mix.But the Stars are coming out of the break feeling much better than they did in early December.I think we found our identity more, Spezza said. We spent less time talking about how we need to play and more time just going over mistakes we made within our structure. And thats a sign usually that everybody knows what were doing.And perhaps finally adjusting to higher expectations for a franchise that hasnt known that feeling for a while.
