Jacob Turner pitched 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. Pinch-hitter Jordan Brown hit a two-run double, and Ed Lucas and Jeff Mathis each drove home a run in the pivotal seventh as the Marlins won for the third time in 19 games. After sweeping four Subway Series games from the New York Yankees, the Mets had their longest winning streak of the season snapped at five. Recalled from Triple-A New Orleans before the game, Turner (1-0) allowed five hits and walked one while striking out three. He was 3-4 with a 4.47 ERA in 10 starts with New Orleans before the promotion. 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. 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. 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 blooped a single of his own for his first big league hit after 10 years in the minors. That scored Dietrich for a 1-0 lead. 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. Daniel Murphy hit an RBI double in the eighth for the Mets. Ozuna had an RBI double in the bottom half. NOTES: Ozuna's hitting streak is the second-longest by a Marlins rookie behind Edgar Renteria's 22-game run in 1996. ... Murphy is hitting .382 (29 for 76) in his last 19 games. ... Marlins prospect Jake Marisnick hit two grand slams and had nine RBIs on Thursday with Double-A Jacksonville. ... Miami rookie RHP Jose Fernandez (2-3, 3.78 ERA) will face the Mets for the third time this season Saturday when he pitches against RHP Collin McHugh, a replacement for ailing LHP Jonathon Niese. Fernandez has not received a decision in his first two starts against New York and has a 3.00 ERA. ''He's got one of the better arms in the entire league,'' Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton "backing off" rehab program
