Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - With Chris Capuano spinning 6 1/3 outstanding innings to lead the way, the Los Angeles Dodgers put together their first winning streak in more than two weeks with Sunday's 5-3 decision over the Miami Marlins.
Capuano (1-2) yielded just one run and five hits while registering seven strikeouts to notch his initial win in three 2013 starts, with the effort giving Los Angeles back-to-back victories for the first time since April 24-25. The Dodgers halted a string of eight straight losses with a 7-1 verdict over the Marlins in Saturday's middle test of this three-game set.
Scott Van Slyke supplied the offense by going 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in a fill-in start, with Matt Kemp also contributing a pair of hits that included the 1,000th of his career.
Carl Crawford also finished 2-for-4 while adding an RBI single in the triumph.
Adeiny Hechavarria delivered a two-run double in the ninth inning for Miami, with Justin Ruggiano recording a solo homer as part of a two-hit day.
Tom Koehler (0-1) pitched well for Miami in his first start of the year, permitting two runs on seven hits over five innings of work in a hard-luck defeat.
The Marlins completed a 10-game road trip at 3-7 and have still yet to win a series away from home this season.
