Volquez has struck out seven, walked two and has thrown 86 pitches. He came into Saturday 1-7 this season, and the Marlins lead 1-0.
Volquez was shaken up after three pitches, turning his right ankle and falling when he collided with Arizona leadoff man Rey Fuentes while covering first. Volquez needed a couple minutes to recover, before deciding to stay in the game.
