Aaron Hill and Cliff Pennington hit home runs in the first inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks held on to beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Friday night.

Trevor Cahill (3-8) pitched 6 2-3 innings allowing two runs and six hits for the Diamondbacks. Addison Reed worked the ninth for his 29th save in 34 chances.  Marlins starter Brad Hand (2-5) allowed three runs in seven innings.

The Marlins threatened in the eighth, but Jarrod Saltalamacchia bounced into an inning-ending double play, one of four turned by the Diamondbacks.

Pennington hit his first homer since May 1, 2013, against San Francisco, and Hill added a two-run shot, his 10th of the season.

The Marlins responded with two runs in the bottom half on RBI singles by Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones.
