MIAMI, June 11 (UPI) -- Josh Johnson hurled seven innings of one-run ball Monday and the Miami Marlins stifled Boston 4-1 in an interleague game.

Steve Cishek tossed a scoreless eighth inning and Heath Bell closed out the victory with his 13th save for Miami, which took the opener of a three-game series.

Donovan Solano drove in a pair of runs with an RBI single and sacrifice fly while Gaby Sanchez added a run-scoring hit during a three-run first inning for Miami.

Boston starter Josh Beckett (4-7) lost for the third straight outing, yielding four runs on six hits over seven innings.

Scott Podsednik went 3-for-4 with a run scored for Boston, which has lost four straight.
