PHOENIX (AP) -- Josh Willingham homered and drove in two runs to back Ricky Nolasco's outstanding pitching performance, sending the Florida Marlins to a 5-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Nolasco scattered three hits over 7 1-3 innings for the Marlins, who took two of three from the NL West leaders and moved within five games of the first-place New York Mets in the NL East.

Stephen Drew hit his second career leadoff homer and scored both runs for Arizona.

The Diamondbacks finished 4-2 on its week-long homestand.
