mlb

On Thursday night, Miami Marlins beat Cincinnati Reds 4-3 to avoid the four-game sweep. Aristides Aquino also set the NL rookie record by the number of homers. He has become the first rookie ever to hit 13 homers in his first 100 career appearances. Dodgers Cody Bellinger had set the previous record in June 2017.

Aquino hit a two-run homer in the first inning for Cincinnati. In the eighth inning, he tied the runs to 3-3 by his two-out RBI single.

Alex Wood has allowed ten homers in 35 2/3 innings this season. Jon Berti, Austin Dean and Starlin Castrol all hit solo home runs off Alex. Ramirez, a rookie, struck a 1-1 pitch over the fence against closer Raisel Iglesias for his third walk-off RBI.

Marlin is now 1-6 with Reds in the series, they have only earned six victories in the last 26 games. Marlin starter Robert Dugger pitched seven innings, allowed two earned runs and retired 13 hits in a row.

Berti led off Marlins with a homer, the third time this season. In the fifth, Dean homered to tie the game, but Castro 14th homer at sixth inning gave Miami a 3-2 lead.

This was the first time in Miami history that four or more solo homers contributed to overall team’s runs.

Reds RHP Trevor Bauer will start Friday’s opener of a four-game series at St. Louis.

Marlins RHP Elieser Hernandez will start the three-game series in Washington.
