Garland (4-2) allowed two runs—one earned—and seven hits. He walked one and struck out three during his fifth quality start in eight outings. Chad Qualls(notes) pitched the ninth to earn his ninth save in 10 opportunities.
Garland had been slated to start Sunday at Atlanta, but a rainout pushed him back to Tuesday.
“I wasn’t worried about wasting a start (like Haren). If that’s your mind-set going in, you’re not going to have your best stuff,” Garland said.
It was Arizona’s second straight win after dropping seven of eight.
“Johnson was rolling out there, he was covering us up pretty good,” Reynolds said. “Then I hit the homer and it kind of got guys in a good mood and got the pressure off.”
Arizona scored four more runs with the help of two Marlins errors and a hit batter.
“I just didn’t finish. I made some bad pitches in the last inning. I can’t take them back now,” Johnson said.
Renyel Pinto(notes) relieved Johnson and hit pinch-hitter Miguel Montero(notes) with the first pitch. Felipe Lopez(notes) and Gerardo Parra(notes) each followed with RBI singles. Montero scored when Parra’s hit got past left fielder Chris Coghlan(notes) for an error.
“The way J.J. was pitching, you hate for them to put up a big number,” Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
Ramirez hit his seventh homer, with one out in the sixth. Florida added an unearned run later in the inning with the help of two errors by Byrnes in left field.
