Marlins Sneak Past Giants in Comeback Win

The Miami Marlins snuck past the San Francisco Giants with a 4-3 victory Monday night. Jorge Soler’s pinch-hit two-run home run in the seventh inning sealed Miami’s come-from-behind victory.

Early Lead

The Giants held the lead the entire game; that is, until the seventh inning.

Heliot Ramos put the Giants on the board in the second with his first career RBI. His second year on the team, Ramos secured the early lead for San Francisco.

Teammate David Villar extended the lead to 3-0 after sending home two runs in the third. Behind J.D. Davis, Villar is second in RBIs (9) and home runs (3) for San Francisco this season.

Marlins From Behind

Down 3-0, Jazz Chisholm Jr. put Miami on the board in the third. The center fielder has already racked up two home runs and five RBIs on the season.

Fans saw scoreless fourth and fifth innings before a ground ball from Luis Arraez cut San Francisco’s lead to 3-2, counting his seventh RBI of the season.

Late Heroics

The most talked about moment from this Monday night matchup most certainly came from the seventh inning.

Jorge Soler’s pinch-hit, two-run home run put the Marlins on top for the first time all night.

Redemption came for Soler, after being 0-for-10 with seven strikeouts against Giants’ pitcher Logan Webb. The left fielder also leads Miami in RBIs and home runs with 10 and five, respectively.

Tuesday Night Rematch

On a four-game losing streak, the Giants (5-10) will look for redemption against the Marlins (9-8) tonight in game two of a three-game series.

The matchup is set for 6:40 at LoanDepot Park.
