KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Brett Wallace homered and Fernando Martinez had an RBI double and scored a run as the Astros beat the Marlins, 4-1, on Sunday afternoon at Osceola County Stadium in a game that was called in the fifth inning because of rain.

Minor League right-hander David Martinez, who spent most of last year at Class A Lancaster, got the start for the Astros and worked four innings, scattering eight hits to get the win. Jose Veras worked a scoreless fifth in his second game since returning from the World Baseball Classic.

Jacob Turner, competing for a spot in the Marlins' rotation, worked 4 2/3 innings, allowing four earned runs. He was removed from the game as the rain was starting.

Ronny Cedeno, who was signed by the Astros on Sunday, made his debut, starting at shortstop. He went 1-for-2 with a triple. Wallace's homer in the third put the Astros ahead 4-1, and it was his third of the spring.

Giancarlo Stanton drove in Juan Pierre with a single in the first, and Greg Dobbs went 3-for-3 with two doubles.

Up next: Left-hander Wade LeBlanc, expected to be Miami's No. 3 starter, will take the hill on Monday as the Marlins play host to right-hander Rick Porcello and the Tigers at Roger Dean Stadium. The game, which starts at 1:05 p.m. ET, can be watched live on MLB.TV. LeBlanc gave up six runs on seven hits and two walks and struck out four in five innings his last time out, a loss to the Nationals, to break up his previously scoreless spring.
