MIAMI - Detroit's Jhonny Peralta played in his first game since completing a 50-game suspension, going 1 for 4 with an RBI in the Tigers' 3-2 loss to the Miami Marlins on Friday night.
Peralta was suspended for his involvement in the Miami-based Biogenesis performance-enhancing lab. His run-scoring double chased Miami starter Tom Koehler in the sixth and cut the Marlins' lead to 3-2.
Giancarlo Stanton drove in three runs for the Marlins and Koehler (5-10) pitched 5 1-3 innings, allowing two runs and five hits while walking three and striking out three.
Steve Cishek pitched a scoreless ninth for his 29th consecutive save and 34th in 36 opportunities.
Detroit's Jose Alvarez (1-5) lasted only 2 2-3 innings in his return to the starting rotation after eight relief appearances. He allowed three runs and two hits, walking two and striking out three.
