|e Miami Marlins got out to an early lead when J.T. Realmuto hit a two run homer in the bottom of the first inning on Tuesday, and the Marlins’ offense continued to hum en route to a 9 3 victory over the Atlanta Braves.
The culmination of Miami’s strong offensive afternoon at Marlins Park was in the bottom of the fifth inning. With one out and a runner on third http://www.marlinsfanaticsjersey.com/aj-ramos-jersey-c-11.html, Realmuto drove in starting pitcher Wei Yin Chen by reaching on a fielder’s choice. Then first baseman Justin Bour singled home right fielder Brian Anderson. Finally, second baseman Starlin Castro hit a three run home run to blow the game open and give the Marlins their 9 3 lead.
It was Castro’s eighth homer of the season and his first since July 9, and, along with Chen’s six inning, three run start, it helped Miami to its seventh win in the last 11 games.
The Marlins are now 44 59 on the season.

2.20. Wei Yin Chen continued his impressive run at home, though his three earned runs over six innings against the Braves actually rose his home ERA from 1.83 to 2.20. Still, compared to Chen’s road ERA of 10.47 http://www.marlinsfanaticsjersey.com/david-phelps-jersey-c-10.html, it’s clear that something is working for Chen at Marlins Park.
Over the past few weeks, manager Don Mattingly, pitching coach Juan Nieves and Chen have all been asked why Chen is so much better at home, but there really isn’t a good answer. None of them have been able to do anything but speculate.
9. Though only seven of them were earned runs, an opposing team has only scored nine runs against Julio Teheran once in his career. The only other time was last season, on May 18, when the Toronto Blue Jays scored nine earned runs on Teheran in a 9 0 win.
1. Chen’s double against Teheran to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning was the pitcher’s first extra base hit of his career. Nick Wittgren Jersey Chen eventually scored when Realmuto grounded into a fielder’s choice, and though the play was reviewed, Chen was deemed safe. That run was also the first of Chen’s career.
The 33 year old Taiwanese southpaw was in good spirits after the game, saying that he considered trying to stretch the double into a triple, but thought better of it when he started to round second base.
When Chen scored the run at home, he didn’t slide, and said afterward that he would have hit the dirt, but he thought the throw would be going to second base to try for a double play.
Quote of the Game
“He set him up the first time up. He took all three, and got him to think he was gonna take all day http://www.marlinsfanaticsjersey.com/jeff-mathis-jersey-c-13.html, and kind of ambushed him the second round.” — Marlins manager Don Mattingly on pitcher Wei Yin Chen’s approach at the plate against Julio Teheran.
Chen’s double in the bottom of the fifth inning sparked the Marlins’ rally in which they scored five runs. It was right after the Braves scored twice in the top of the inning to cut Miami’s lead to one.
“[Chen’s hit] is what got that one going, isn’t it?” Mattingly said.
