Marlins hit three home runs in blowout win

“You dropped a bomb on me.”

That song was playing throughout the entire night as the Miami Marlins hit three home runs to rout the San Francisco Giants 11-3 on Tuesday.

It was their highest scoring total and margin of victory this season. It was also the most runs they scored in a single game since September 18, 2017 against the New York Mets (13). The Marlins have also extended their home run streak to four games at home, their most since June 29-July 2, 2018. 

Trevor Richards (2-5, 3.82 ERA) gave up a lead-off home run to Giants second baseman Joe Panik but allowed only one hit through a season high seven innings, striking out five. Elieser Hernandez pitched the final two innings, giving up two runs on four hits. 

Jorge Alfaro, Garrett Cooper (3-runs each) and Rosell Herrera (solo) each hit a home run to combine for seven runs scored. As a team, the Marlins had not hit a three-run homer prior to Tuesday’s game. 

“You’re not hitting three-run homers if guys don’t get on base,” manager Don Mattingly said.

Harold Ramirez went 3-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to eight games. He tied former catcher and manager Mike Redmond for the most hits through a t 13 career games in Marlins history. 

“Sometimes I don’t believe I’m here,” Ramirez said. “But my mother and my wife told me believe it.”

Pablo Lopez (3-5, 5.40 ERA) will take on Madison Bumgarner (3-4, 4.10 ERA) on Wednesday night.
