Marlins edge Guardians to end 4-game losing streak

marlins

Jazz Chisholm Jr. delivered a two-out, tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning, and the Miami Marlins snapped a four-game losing streak with their 3-2 win over the visiting Cleveland Guardians on Friday.

With two outs in the eighth against Cleveland’s Cade Smith (3-1), Jake Burger doubled off the right field wall, then scored on Chisholm’s line-drive hit into center. The Marlins took the lead after right fielder Dane Myers threw out the Guardians’ Daniel Schneemann trying to tag up from third and score on the fly ball in the top of the eighth inning.

Bryan De La Cruz and Josh Bell hit back-to-back homers in the third as Miami posted its first win in five June games. Starter Ryan Weathers left after 2 1/3 innings with a finger issue, but five Marlins relievers held the AL Central-leading Guardians to two hits, with Tanner Scott (5-4) getting the win.

Brayan Rocchio hit his first career homer, with a man on in the third, for Cleveland, which was held to six hits while dropping its second straight game in the opener of his three-game series.

Weathers allowed two hits over the first two innings and struck out Will Brennan to open the third. He then yielded a single to Austin Hedges, and ninth-place hitter Rocchio followed by clearing the left field wall for his milestone homer to give Cleveland a 2-0 lead.

The left-hander exited immediately after due to index finger soreness. However, his teammates picked him up in the bottom of the third when De La Cruz clubbed a solo home run to center and Bell followed that with a drive into the left field seats off Logan Allen to tie it at 2-2.

Allen allowed two runs on four hits with three walks while striking out three in six innings for the Guardians, who are 4-5 since winning nine in a row.

De La Cruz had three hits for Miami, which won for just the third time in its past nine contests.
