Sports Marte's four hits lead Marlins past Rockies 11-4
Lopez, Marlins add to Rockies' road woes, win 6-2
MIAMI (AP) — Desperate to get something going on the road, the Colorado Rockies brought a vacation vibe for their trip to Miami. Loud floral prints, shoes without socks, white pants, it all was part of the look for the flight with hopes of changing their luck away from home. It didn’t work. Pablo López took advantage of an extra day of rest by allowing only two runs in a career-best eight innings, Corey Dickerson hit a two-run triple and the Miami Marlins opened a homestand by beating the Rockies 6-2 on Tuesday night. “You always wants to be that guy who helps the bullpen out, tries to stay as long as he can," López said. “Being able to do it tonight makes me really happy.
MIAMI (AP) — Starling Marté had four hits, including a homer and double, and the Miami Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 11-4 on Thursday night.
Adam Duvall and Jazz Chisholm also went deep for the Marlins, who had 16 hits.
Trevor Rogers (7-3) allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings. Miami's rookie left-hander struck out eight, walked one and has yielded two runs or fewer in 12 of his 13 starts.
The homers from Duvall, Chisholm and Marte off starter Chi Chi González keyed a six-run second inning.
Duvall’s two-run shot started the scoring. Chisholm’s three-run blast bounced off the upper deck in right field, and Marte followed with his solo shot over the left-center field wall.
Tapia helps lead Rockies to rare road win vs Marlins
MIAMI (AP) — Raimel Tapia hit two doubles, singled and scored twice, and the Colorado Rockies earned a rare road victory, beating the Miami Marlins 4-3 on Wednesday night. Charlie Blackmon had two hits and an RBI for the Rockies, who are a major league-worst 5-23 on the road — compared to 20-14 at Coors field. Tapia has eight doubles in June after he hit four over the first two months of the season. Winning pitcher Austin Gomber (5-5) allowed one run in five innings. The left-hander was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth after he scattered five hits and struck out eight on 84 pitches. The win was the 300th in Bud Black’s tenure as Rockies manager.
Miami padded its lead in the fifth on José Devers’ RBI single and Jon Berti’s run-scoring double.
González (2-4), of neighboring Delray Beach, allowed eight runs, 11 hits, struck out six and walked one in five innings.
Jorge Alfaro also had three hits, and his RBI single capped a three-run sixth for Miami.
Staked to an 11-0 lead, Rogers surrendered Brendan Rodgers’ leadoff homer and Yonathan Daza’s RBI groundout in the seventh.
The Rockies scored twice against reliever Ross Detwiler in the eighth on Rodgers’ RBI single and Ryan McMahon’s sacrifice fly.
Rockies shortstop Trevor Story rejoined the club Thursday after a stint on the injured list. Sidelined since May 28 because of left elbow inflammation, Story went 1 for 3, walked and scored a run.
Rockies: RHP Jon Gray (forearm flexor strain) tossed from 90 to 120 feet before Thursday’s game.
Rockies: LHP Kyle Freeland (0-1, 6.23) will start the opener of a three-game series at Cincinnati Friday.
Marlins: RHP Sandy Alcantara (3-5, 3.30) looks to follow the eight-inning outing of his previous start in the opener of a three-game series against Atlanta on Friday. Alcantara didn’t allow an earned run and scattered six hits at Pittsburgh Sunday.

Red Sox beat sloppy Marlins 5-3 for 5th straight win .
BOSTON (AP) — Christian Arroyo hit a two-run single in Boston’s three-run fourth inning, and the Red Sox took advantage of Miami’s shoddy play Monday to hold off the Marlins 5-3 for their fifth straight victory. Alex Verdugo added an RBI double and two hits for the Red Sox, who were coming off their first three-game sweep at Yankee Stadium since June 2011. “I'm a big believer that when you come from that series (in New York), sometimes you have letdowns,” Boston manager Alex Cora said. “To win (tonight) meant a lot. They grinded, they made pitches.” Starling Marte hit a solo homer and two singles for Miami, which stranded 14 baserunners in its ninth loss in its last 10 games.
