LOS ANGELES, May 12 (UPI) -- Chris Capuano's 6 1/3 efficient innings Sunday staked the Los Angeles Dodgers to a second straight victory following a long skid, 5-3 over Miami.

Capuano (1-2) pitched well in his second start since coming off the disabled list, baffling the Marlins, who managed just one run off him. The left-hander yielded five hits and one walk while striking out seven.

Scott Van Slyke socked a solo homer and added an RBI single for the Dodgers, who posted a second consecutive win over Miami after snapping an eight-game losing streak Saturday.

Carl Crawford went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the victory.

The loss was hung on the Marlins' Tom Koehler (0-1), who made his second major-league start. He allowed two runs on seven hits while lasting five frames.

Justin Ruggiano went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and Adeiny Hechavarria drove in a pair of runs for Miami.
