Hector Rondon (1-1) pitched a scoreless seventh to earn the win. He fooled Jake Lamb with a changeup to end the fifth.

All eight of New York's hits were for extra bases. He allowed only four hits, none after the fourth inning.

Montgomery (3-4) allowed three hits and three walks.

Volquez finally notched his first win after holding the Phillies to one run and three hits over six innings on Monday. The Blue Jays were held to three hits and five walks.

Miami are 4-1 in their last 5 overall and Miami are 4-1 in their last 5 home games while Miami are 1-4 in their last 5 versus the NL West.
