MIAMI (AP) — Brian Anderson and Cameron Maybin each drove in two runs to help spoil Shelby Miller's return to the mound after missing over a year for Tommy John surgery as the Miami Marlins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-5 on Monday night.

Dan Straily (3-3) pitched effectively while appealing a five-game suspension for intentionally throwing a pitch at the San Francisco Giants' Buster Posey on June 19. Straily allowed three runs in 6 1/3 innings for the Marlins.

Justin Bour hit his 13th home run for Miami, which won its third straight.

Miller (0-1) made his first start since April 23, 2017 and gave up six hits and five runs in 3 2/3 innings. He struck out five and walked two while throwing 85 pitches.

Jake Lamb began the scoring with a home run in the first inning for the Diamondbacks, who saw their four-game winning streak end.

Bour responded with a solo shot in the bottom half.

Jeff Mathis's base hit and Miller's sacrifice fly gave Arizona a 3-1 lead.

The Marlins cut the deficit to 3-2 on a single by Starlin Castro.

Miami scored three runs in the pivotal fourth to take a 5-3 lead on a base hit by Derek Dietrich and a two-run double by Anderson.

The Marlins broke the game open in the eighth with four runs sparked by Maybin's two-run single.

Chris Owings's RBI double and Mathis's sacrifice fly in the ninth cut the final deficit to 9-5.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Diamondbacks: RHP Clay Buchholz (left oblique) was placed on the 10-day disabled list. "He said he could take the ball and would take the ball, that gives me the feeling that he's feeling good enough, but not perfect," manager Torey Lovullo said. . LHP Robbie Ray (oblique) will make his return to the rotation for Wednesday's game. . OF A.J. Pollock (thumb) has been cleared with baseball activities. . OF Steven Souza (pectoral) threw in the outfield and has been cleared to be a designated hitter in rehab assignments. . RHP Randall Delgado (shoulder) will have another rehab assignment on Wednesday, but still has "several" more appearances before returning to the big leagues.

Marlins: C J.T. Realmuto (right wrist) was not in the starting lineup after taking a foul ball off his wrist in Sunday's game. "That last at-bat, he took a swing, and you could tell something was bothering him," manager Don Mattingly said. "We think he's just a day. Give him a day and see how he feels. He was pretty sore today." . LHP Caleb Smith (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list and MRI results revealed he has a Grade 3 lat strain. . RHP Jose Urena (shoulder) starting a throwing program and Mattingly believes he will be able to return soon after he is eligible on July 1.
