Jose Fernandez was a hard-luck loser Wednesday after being charged with two runs in 7 1/3 innings against the Diamondbacks.
Both of those runs scored on a Cody Ross three-run homer after Fernandez departed. Fernandez allowed just three hits for the third time in his last four starts. He has a 1.65 ERA in 27 1/3 innings during June.
Justin Ruggiano went 2-for-4 and homered for the Marlins' only run Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
The homer came off former teammate Heath Bell in the ninth. It's the third straight start in which Ruggiano has collected two hits. Unfortunately, those three games have been spread out over 11 days. He's in line for more at-bats while he's hot, but the Marlins will probably go primarily with their younger outfielders as the season progresses
