LOS ANGELES (AP) — Justin Nicolino gave up two hits in 7 1/3 innings in his season debut to lead the Miami Marlins to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night for their fourth straight win.

Nicolino (1-0), just recalled from Triple-A New Orleans, walked two and struck out two. He didn’t allow a runner past first base and retired 12 of the final 13 batters he faced.

Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna hit RBI singles in the first inning off Scott Kazmir (1-2) to provide the scoring.

The Dodgers have dropped three straight and saw their scoreless streak extended to 14 innings.

Marlins relievers walked the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth, but the Dodgers came away empty. Jose Urena pitched the final 1 2/3 innings for his first career save.
