MIAMI (AP) - Surprising Tom Koehler outpitched Josh Beckett, and the Miami Marlins extended their home winning streak to seven games by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3 Friday night.

Koehler (3-2) allowed three hits in seven scoreless innings. The right-hander began the year with a career record of 5-11, made the rotation as a fifth starter and now has an ERA of 2.41.

Beckett (0-1) struck out eight but gave up four runs in 6 2-3 innings. He fell to 0-6 in his past 13 starts and remained winless since the end of the 2012 season, even though his ERA this year is 3.14.

The Dodgers arrived in Miami at 6:30 a.m. after playing for more than 8 hours Thursday at Minnesota to earn their first doubleheader sweep in 12 years, and they looked travel-logged while falling behind 6-0. Twice a bloop single dropped among three Los Angeles fielders to allow a run to score.
