MIAMI — Right-hander Jacob Turner delivered his best start in almost a year, received just enough run support and the Miami Marlins’ bullpen held off the Milwaukee Brewers for a 2-1 win on Saturday afternoon in front of 25,819 at Marlins Park.

Turner pitched 6 1⁄3 scoreless innings and picked up his first victory since July 10, 2013, in his longest start since then. He lowered his ERA more than a point from 6.59 to 5.35.

The Marlins (26-24) ended a five-game skid against the Brewers (29-21).

Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s run-scoring double in the second inning and a pinch-RBI single by

infielder Jeff Baker in the seventh accounted for the Marlins’ runs.

Right-handed reliever A.J. Ramos gave up a run and two hits as Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy doubled to score right fielder Ryan Braun and cut the deficit to 2-1 in the eighth.

An errant throw by Saltalamacchia to first base after Ramos struck out center fielder Carlos Gomez put runners on second and third with one out. Ramos got a huge out when he forced third baseman Mark Reynolds to pop up in the infield.

Marlins manager Mike Redmond then called upon closer Steve Cishek hoping for a four-out save. Cishek struck out second baseman Scooter Gennett to end the threat in the eighth and pitched a scoreless ninth, striking out shortstop Jean Segura to pick up his 10th save in 11 opportunities this season.

Turner (1-2) gave up eight hits and had two strikeouts but walked only one. He opened the season as Miami’s No. 4 starter but spent nearly a month on the disabled list.
