Wainwright scattered four hits, walked two and struck out three, with his afternoon ending after 58 pitches. He got out of the third inning after Ichiro Suzuki singled and Ozuna bounced into a double play.

Marlins right-hander Tom Koehler was charged with five runs in three-plus innings, striking out five, and finishing with 74 pitches.

"I need to be better," Koehler said. "I expect a lot out of myself. I feel like if we want to get to where we're hoping to go, I'm going to be a big part of it. I need to get the ship going in the right direction."
