Jesus Sanchez provided the only run of the game with a ground ball on Tuesday night as the visiting Miami Marlins defeated the Detroit Tigers 1-0 in 10 innings.

There were eight total hits in a pitching duel between Marlins left-hander Ryan Weathers and Tigers right-hander Reese Olson.

Weathers plated the first 15 batters he faced as he allowed three hits without a walk while recording four strikeouts in eight innings. Olson also gave up three hits without a walk while striking out six in eight innings.

In the top of the 10th inning, Josh Bell singled off Alex Lange (0-3) to move automatic runner Bryan De La Cruz from second base to third base. De La Cruz scored on a fielder’s choice grounder by Sanchez to short stop.

Detroit’s Riley Greene started the bottom of the 10th inning at second base and advanced to third on a long flyout, but was left behind when Wenceel Perez flyout to end the game.

Tanner Scott (2-4) of the Marlins pitched a scoreless ninth inning and was credited with the win. AJ Puk got the last three outs for his first save.

Bell, the only Marlins player with more than one hit, was the only baserunner in the first four innings. He had a two-out single in the top of the first inning. Miami’s Otto Lopez led off the fifth inning with an infield single, but was eliminated on a double play.

Perez became the Tigers’ first baserunner when he singled to right field in the sixth inning. He was quickly removed from the base paths when Javier Baez bounced into a double play.

Sanchez had a two-out single in the top of the seventh for the Marlins before Olson struck out Lopez.

Mark Canha delivered a two-out single up the middle in the bottom of the seventh before Riley Greene ran into a fielder’s choice.

Olson finished his outing with a 1-2-3 inning in the eighth, including a strikeout of Nick Gordon. Perez singled again with two outs in the eighth. Baez then grounded into a fielder’s choice.

The Tigers’ Matt Vierling reached base in the ninth inning on a one-out single against Scott and Canha walked with two outs. Greene then grounded out, leading to extra innings.
