Jose Fernandez won his second straight start and Derek Dietrich hit a three run home run as the Miami Marlins topped the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Friday.   For Dietrich, it was his first big league homer and came a few innings after Fernandez served up a three run homer of his own.   That would be all the rookie phenom would allow in another dominant effort.   Miami snapped a three game losing streak with the win while the Dodgers lost for the eighth time in a row. Fernandez allowed three runs on eight hits in his six innings of work to improve to 2-2 with a 3.65 E.R.A.    The 20 year old struck out seven while only walking two.  Fernandez settled in after giving up the three run shot to Adrian Gonzalez in the first inning and threw 66 of his 86 pitches for strikes.   Mike Dunn earned his sixth hold of the year in the seventh inning with a perfect inning.   Chad Qualls allowed a run in an inning of work but it was enough for his first hold of the season.   In the ninth, closer Steve Cishek did just that for his fifth save.  Cishek had a perfect inning featuring two strikeouts for one of his better appearances thus far in 2013. Dietrich is off to a hot start in his big league career bringing back memories of Dan Uggla with his power stroke.   The home run went into right center field in Dodger Stadium which is known for being favorable to pitching.  The Marlins would go on to add two more runs in the seventh inning with Juan Pierre picking up a run batted in.   JP had a two hit game, both going for singles.   Chris Coghlan pinch hit and doubled, the hit was reviewed for a possible home run but the call on the field stood as a two bagger. Miami will try for a second consecutive win on Saturday with Kevin Slowey slated to start.
