MIAMI (AP) --- Brian Anderson hit a three-run homer in the first inning Tuesday
night and the Miami Marlins went on to a 12-7 win over the San Diego Padres,
who lost their fourth consecutive game.
The Padres (45-49) fell four games under .500 for the first time this season.
Harold Ramirez had two doubles, two RBIs and two runs scored. Garrett Cooper
hit his 11th homer and a two-run single, and Starlin Castro had a bases-loaded
triple to make it 11-3 in the sixth.
Jordan Yamamoto (4-0) struggled early and needed 99 pitches to get through five
innings, but he gave up only two earned runs. Padres rookie Logan Allen (2-2)
had his second rough start in a row, allowing seven runs in 2 1/3 innings.
Franmil Reyes hit his 26th homer pinch-hitting in the ninth. San Diego teammate
Manuel Margot hit his sixth homer.
Anderson's one-out homer in the first, his 13th, gave the Marlins a quick 3-0
lead, and in the second they added four more runs. Two scored when right
fielder Josh Naylor misplayed Ramirez's fly into a two-run double, and Cooper
followed with a two-run single.
Miami went 5 for 9 with runners in scoring position.
A pigeon caused a brief delay during the second inning when it landed in the
infield. The bird eluded plate umpire Fieldin Culbreth before first baseman
Cooper finally chased it into foul territory.
Marlins: Placed RHP Austin Brice (right forearm flexor strain) on the 10-day
injured list retroactive to Sunday, and reinstated RHP Tayron Guerrero (right
middle finger blister) from the 10-day IL. Brice's injury is not believed to be
serious. ... RHP Pablo Lopez (right shoulder strain) and RHP Drew Steckenrider
(right elbow inflammation) continued their rehab by throwing bullpen sessions.
Padres: RHP Chris Paddack (5-4, 2.84 ERA) is scheduled to pitch against his
former organization for the first time Wednesday. He was an eighth-round draft
choice by the Marlins in 2015, and was traded to San Diego the following year.
Marlins: RHP Trevor Richards (3-10, 4.18) had a season-high eight strikeouts
when he beat the Padres on June 2.
