MIAMI -- The Arizona Diamondbacks started fast and held on late. Air Max 90 Verdi . Aaron Hill and Cliff Pennington hit home runs in the first inning for the Diamondbacks, who beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Friday night. All five runs in the game were scored in the first inning. "We hit some balls hard with three runs and then they scored two in the first and our pitching shut them down," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. Trevor Cahill (3-8) pitched 6 2-3 innings, allowing two runs and six hits. Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his 29th save in 34 chances. Marlins starter Brad Hand (2-5) allowed three runs in seven innings. The Marlins, trailing 3-2, loaded the bases in the seventh, but Matt Stites got Donovan Soloano to ground into a fielders choice to end the scoring threat. The Marlins threatened again in the eighth, but Jarrod Saltalamacchia bounced into an inning-ending double play, one of four turned by the Diamondbacks. "They hurt us tonight for sure," said Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee, who grounded into two of the four. "Its going to happen from time to time, but it doesnt make you feel any better about it." Pennington hit his first homer since May 1, 2013, against San Francisco, and Hill added a two-run shot, his 10th of the season. "Im going up there just looking for something up," Hill said. "I typically dont swing at the first pitch, but it worked out and it ended up being all right." The Marlins responded with RBI singles by Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones. "Thats the beauty of the big leagues," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Both teams come out swinging the bats and then zeroes the rest of the way." Diamondbacks rookie Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a single in the fifth. TRAINERS ROOM Diamondbacks: LHP Matt Reynolds (Tommy John surgery) threw live batting practice to SS Chris Owings (left shoulder strain) in Scottsdale, Arizona. Marlins: RHP Henderson Alvarez is expected to rejoin the rotation on Saturday after missing two starts with right shoulder inflammation. "He threw a bullpen the other day and he looks great," Redmond said. "...Whatever stillness he had is gone and hes ready to go." ON DECK Diamondbacks LHP Wade Miley (7-8, 4.61) will oppose Alvarez (8-5, 2.48), who is 5-2 with a 1.48 ERA at home. Miley is 2-1 with a 0.89 ERA in three career starts against the Marlins. SHOW AND GO With the Diamondbacks in the middle of a season-high, 10-game road trip, which included a pair of long nights in Cleveland, Gibson elected to give his team extra time off before the game. The team showed up just two hours before game time and did not partake in batting practice. "Experience just tells you that its something smart to do," Gibson said. "Mentally its a good lift for them to give them a little extra time to chill out and do some other things and not overthink things." The plan is the same for Saturday, which excited the players. "Its funny, you should have heard the reaction from everybody when (director of team travel) Roger (Riley) yelled it was show and go," Hill said. "We obviously cant do it every day, but on a long road trip. Its funny how a bunch of grown men get excited about the little things." POSTGAME MOVE Marlins RHP Anthony DeSclafani was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans to make room for Alvarez, who will be reinstated from the disabled list on Saturday. Air Max 90 Nere Scontate . Price also posted the longest shutout sequence since 1960 at 164:19 minutes. He stopped a combined 55 shots in Canadas final two games and 70 of 71 shots in Canadas three elimination games, allowing only a breakaway goal to Lauris Darzins of Latvia. For his efforts, Price was named best goalkeeper by the tournament directorate. Prices outstanding play is marred only by the extremely strong defensive play of Canadas top six defencemen; Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester. Air Max 90 Bianche Zalando . "We were left with the overall impression that the team wasnt trending toward being able to compete for a Stanley Cup," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said in a news conference at the clubs arena. "And that was just a clear signal and why it was time to make those changes.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A day after Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf took a slap shot to the head, the Ducks had already found the lighter side of a potentially disastrous playoff injury. "Luckily, hes married, has a couple of kids," Anaheim defenceman Ben Lovejoy said. "Hes not trying to impress anybody with his face." Coach Bruce Boudreau was more succinct: "I didnt want to look at him," he said. Nobody in either dressing room was surprised Thursday to learn Getzlaf plans to play against the Dallas Stars in Game 2 on Friday night despite that huge cut on his face. Getzlaf was hit by Tyler Seguins shot in the final minute of the Ducks 4-3 victory over Dallas on Wednesday night in the series opener, but the puck apparently broke no bones -- which means itll be almost impossible to keep Getzlaf off the ice. "Thats why he is who he is," Boudreau said. "Thats why hes won two gold medals and a Stanley Cup and hes not 30. He learned from the Scotty Niedermayers and the Chris Prongers that were here before him, too. Hes a battler and a gamer. It wont look too pretty, but hes going to be playing." Getzlaf was the NHLs second-leading scorer this season with 87 points, having a spectacular offensive season while doing more of the Ducks defensive dirty work than ever before. His two-way game was on display in the opener, and Anaheim followed his lead to hold off the Stars despite blowing most of a four-goal lead. The Ducks know theyve got to maintain their focus on that dirty work to take control of the series before heading to Dallas. Anaheim had a spectacular first half of Game 1 before slipping late in the second period. "Youd like to put your foot on their throat, but they showed they can score some goals when they have to," Anaheim defenceman Cam Fowler said. "Theyve got momentum going into Game 2." Five more things to examine when the Ducks return against Dallas: FILM WORK: Dallas coach Lindy Ruff held the longest film session of the season on Thursday, but mostly focused on what the Stars did well in the series opener. With capptain Jamie Benn leading a long list of Stars making their post-season debuts, Ruff wants to keep his teams morale high after an early setback. Air Max Plus Scontate. "Its my job to get them in the right place, and they werent in quite the right place yesterday," Ruff said. BELESKEYS WOES: Getzlaf isnt the only top-line Ducks forward nursing an injury. Matt Beleskey might not play in Game 2 after leaving the opener in the third period. Beleskey said he has been struggling for weeks with an undisclosed lower-body injury thats been "all over the place" in its severity. He plans to evaluate himself Friday morning before deciding whether to try. Beleskey is easier to replace in the Ducks lineup than Getzlaf, but the energetic forward would be missed. HEAVY LOAD: The Ducks used their speed and passing abilities to carve up the Stars depleted defence for numerous scoring chances, particularly early. With Brenden Dillon still sidelined by an undisclosed injury, the Stars leaned heavily on defencemen Trevor Daley (who played 26:14) and Alex Goligoski (a whopping 28:39) to keep the Ducks at bay. Goligoski, who didnt skate Thursday, was encouraged by the way Dallas finished. "I dont think (Anaheim) had too many shifts where they were buzzing down there (in the Dallas end)," he said. DUCKY DEBUT: Rookie goalie Frederik Andersen stopped 32 shots to win his NHL playoff debut, and Boudreau indicated the 6-foot-4 Dane is likely to start again in Game 2 over veteran Jonas Hiller. Andersen has impressed his teammates with his preternatural calm all season long. "Its almost like hes got no heartbeat," Corey Perry said. "He just goes out, finds the puck and stops it." MOMENTUM SHIFT?: Even though Anaheim has the chance to take its first two-game lead in a playoff series since 2009, both teams believe Dallas is starting Game 2 with no disadvantage. "I think were back on an even playing field, even though were up 1-0," Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano said. "The way they finished the game, it feels like were even." Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
