PHOENIX (AP) - Tyler Skaggs allowed three hits through 6 2-3 innings in his major league debut, pitching Arizona to a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins Wednesday in the opener of the first home doubleheader in Diamondbacks history.
The 21-year-old left-hander gave up a two-run homer to Justin Ruggiano in the second, then shut down the Marlins on one hit the rest of his outing. He fanned four and survived five walks, then left to a standing ovation from the crowd of 17,239, Arizona's smallest at home this season.
Aaron Hill had a two-run homer and an RBI single. Jacob Turner (0-1), in his first start for Miami since coming to the Marlins in a trade deadline deal with Detroit, allowed three runs and four hits in six innings.
