#MIAMI (AP) — Jazz Chisholm Jr. homered twice, including a grand slam, and had a career-high six RBIs as the Miami Marlins beat the Washington Nationals 12-2 on Tuesday night.
#Nick Fortes and Jorge Soler also went deep while Avisaíl García had three hits for the Marlins.
#Rookie right-hander Edward Cabrera allowed one run in six innings. In his second start since being promoted from Triple-A last week, Cabrera (2-0) limited Washington to two hits, walked two, struck out four and hit a batter.
#The Marlins have scored 26 times in Cabrera’s first two outings. They beat Colorado 14-1 on June 1.
#Chisholm snapped a 2-for-29 skid with his second-inning grand slam. He drove a 3-0 pitch off Joan Adon (1-10) over the wall in center to make it 5-0.
#Homers from Fortes and Soler keyed another five-run inning in the fourth.
#Fortes’ three-run blast ended Adon’s outing after three-plus innings. Andrés Machado relieved Adon and allowed Garrett Cooper’s one-out double and Soler’s two-run shot.
#Chisholm hit his 10th homer of the season in the fifth, a two-run shot off Machado. It was the second multi-homer game of Chisholm’s career.
#Cabrera’s string of 11 scoreless innings since being called up ended on Luis García’s solo homer in the sixth.
#Adon allowed eight runs on seven hits and two walks. The right-hander became the first major league pitcher with double-digit losses this season.
