PHOENIX (AP) – Trevor Rogers threw six strong innings and Jesús Aguilar had three more hits to lead the Miami Marlins 5-1 over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night.

While several opposing teams have seen exactly how good Rogers can be, his friends and family got their first glimpse of him on a Major League hill in Chase Field.
“It was great. You didn’t see me,” Rogers said. “I could hear her on every pitch. My high school coach was screaming – it was like high school when he coached me.”
Miguel Rojas, Corey Dickerson and Adam Duvall each had two hits and an RBI for the Marlins, who had earned a split of the four-game series.
After driving 9-17 in the series with three homers and seven RBIs, Aguilar beats .362 on the road this season. He has safely reached the base in all 18 away games and scored a goal in 17 of these 18 games.
For the Marlins, this series was the first four games of a 10-game road trip. After a rocky start, they reacted with two wins.
“It was good to get those wins, split the series and start this journey,” said manager Don Mattingly.

Diamondbacks starter Merrill Kelly (2-4) scored 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and seven hits while scoring four hits and leaving two.
“We just couldn’t get anything offensive,” said Torey Lovullo, Arizona manager. “We had a couple of opportunities that we took advantage of there, but we couldn’t achieve great success at the right time.”
The Marlins opened the scoring in game three when Magneuris Sierra doubled up to hit Rojas’ single.
Arizona joined it in the fifth when Tim Locastro led into the pool in the right center with a principle double and met on a victim flight from Pavin Smith.
Miami regained the lead in the sixth with an RBI single from Brian Anderson.
The marlins went on the seventh to three. Kelly was drawn in to see Garrett Cooper after a one-off stroll. Chris Devenski gave a double to Rojas and then three RBI singles to Aguilar, Dickerson and Duvall.
Dylan Floro, Anthony Bender and Anthony Bass each tossed a scoreless inning of relief to ensure victory.
