MIAMI -- Jacob Turner's season debut was a rousing success.
After pitcher Alex Sanabia was placed on the disabled list earlier in the week, Turner was called up from Triple-A New Orleans to take his spot in the rotation. The 22-year-old right-hander responded by tossing seven scoreless innings in his season debut and Marcell Ozuna had three hits to help the Miami Marlins halt a nine-game losing streak with a 5-1 win over the New York Mets on Friday night.
"I feel I've been throwing the ball like this in Triple-A," said Turner, who was drafted ninth overall by Detroit in 2009 and traded to the Marlins last season. "To be honest with you, it was a matter of time of making the adjustments I needed to make and get everything right."
Recalled before the game, Turner (1-0) allowed five hits and walked one while striking out three.
"Turner did a tremendous job coming up," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "I know he was excited to get the opportunity to go out there and start."
Turner was 3-4 with a 4.47 ERA in 10 starts with New Orleans before the promotion.
"The last five or six starts, everything's coming together," Turner said. "Obviously, it took a little bit longer than I would have liked but I'm happy that it is here now."
"A lot of good things out there tonight," Redmond said.
After sweeping four Subway Series games from the New York Yankees, the Mets had their longest winning streak of the season snapped at five.
Shaun Marcum (0-6) allowed four runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings, becoming the first Mets pitcher to open a season with six consecutive losses since Mike Pelfrey went 0-7 in 2007. The right-hander struck out a career-high 12 over seven strong innings in a no-decision Sunday night against Atlanta.
"It's just one of those nights where he kept us in the game, gave us a chance, we didn't mount much offense -- but I certainly wasn't disappointed with the way Shaun pitches, that's for sure," Mets manager Terry Collins said.
Ozuna led off the fifth with a single to extend his hitting streak to 16 games, the longest current run in the majors. He is batting .356 (21 for 59) during the streak.
"I feel good because I'm enjoying my game," Ozuna said. "The manager and coaches give me confidence and always stress that I remain calm and also have fun."
Marcum got out of a bases-loaded jam when Jeff Mathis bounced into a double play, keeping the game scoreless.
Derek Dietrich doubled to start the seventh for the Marlins and Ozuna followed with a bloop single. Two batters later, Lucas, making his first major-league start, blooped a single of his own for his first career hit after 10 years in the minors. That scored Dietrich for a 1-0 lead.
"It's been 10 years. I never stopped hoping," Lucas said. "I finally got an opportunity. Hopefully there will be more to come."
Mathis came up with the bases loaded again and this time delivered a sacrifice fly. Brown batted for Turner and hit a two-run double to left-center, making it 4-0 and ending Marcum's night.
"It's frustrating," Marcum said. "I think every pitcher will tell you it's more frustrating making quality pitches and having bloopers fall in."
Daniel Murphy hit an RBI double in the eighth for the Mets. Ozuna had an RBI double in the bottom half.
