Nate Jones (1-4) pitched two-thirds of an inning for the win.

Danks allowed three runs and four hits in six innings in his first start since undergoing shoulder surgery in August to repair a capsule tear and remove debris in his rotator cuff and biceps. He struck out five, walked none and hit a batter in the opener of the interleague series.

"It was a good first one," Danks said. "I did as much as I had hoped to do. Obviously, as the game went on, I wanted to go further, but I totally understand the move, totally agree with the move and I'm glad we got the win."

Derek Dietrich hit a two-run homer off Danks for a 2-0 Marlins lead in the fourth. Placido Polanco scored after leading off with a single for the Marlins' first hit.

Trailing 3-2 in the seventh, the Marlins tied the game. Marcell Ozuna led off with a double, forcing Danks from the game.

But that was it for the Miami offense.

"I mean, it's those guys' jobs to drive in runs. That's what ... they get paid to drive in runs," Redmond said. "Obviously you don't get the job done you know what happens."

NOTES: Miami RHP Alex Sanabia said he didn't know it was illegal to spit on a baseball the way he did Monday against the Phillies, and that he did it just to get a better grip. Sanabia, who was caught on video spitting after allowing a home run to Philadelphia's Domonic Brown, said he hasn't been contacted by Major League Baseball. ... Marlins RHP Kevin Slowey played long toss and threw off flat ground Friday and is expected to throw a bullpen session Saturday. Slowey left his start Wednesday against Philadelphia in the sixth inning with a strained left lat muscle, but said he anticipates making his start Tuesday against Tampa Bay. . The White Sox are hopeful LHP Chris Sale will make his scheduled start on Tuesday against the Cubs. He missed his start Wednesday against the Red Sox because of shoulder tendinitis. ... White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham won't play in his rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte until at least Wednesday because he is experiencing soreness in his left hand, general manager Rick Hahn said.
