Bour's grand slam rallies Marlins past Arizona 8-6

PHOENIX (AP) Justin Bour hit a pinch-hit grand slam and the Miami Marlins rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-6 on Friday night.

Bour's first career slam, and the first pinch-hit grand slam for the Marlins in 11 years, came off reliever Tyler Clippard and tied it at 5-5 during a seven-run seventh inning, erasing a solid outing by Arizona starter Patrick Corbin.

Clippard (2-3) walked the next two batters then Christian Yellich doubled down the left field line off lefty Zac Curtis, scoring both runners to put Miami up 7-5. Marcell Ozuna capped the outburst with an RBI single off reliever Jake Barrett to make it 8-5.

Brian Ellington (1-0) pitched one-third of an inning in relief of starter Justin Nicolino to get the victory. A.J. Ramos tossed a scoreless ninth for his 19th consecutive save to open the season, the most in club history.
