Jazz Chisholm Jr. breaks 8th-inning tie with RBI single, Marlins beat Guardians 3-2

MIAMI (AP) - Jazz Chisholm Jr. broke an eighth-inning tie with an RBI single, Bryan De La Cruz and Josh Bell hit back-to-back homers in the third and the Miami Marlins beat the Cleveland Guardians 3-2 on Friday night.

Jake Burger hit a two-out double off Cleveland reliever Cade Smith (3-1) and scored on Chisholm's grounder to center field to end the Marlins' four-game losing streak.

Tanner Scott (5-4) got the final five outs to complete Miami's first June victory.

Rookie Brayan Rocchio hit his first career homer for the Guardians.

Cleveland threatened in the eighth when Daniel Schneeman led off with a triple and Tyler Freeman drew a one-out walk against Calvin Faucher. Scott relieved Faucher and retired Jose Ramirez on a fly to right fielder Dane Myers, who then threw out Schneeman at the plate.

Miami starter Ryan Weathers left because of left index finger soreness with one out in the third after allowing Rocchio's two-run homer. Weathers gave up four hits and struck out three.

De La Cruz and Bell tied it with the consecutive homers off Guardians starter Logan Allen in the bottom half.

Allen completed six innings of two-run ball. The right-hander gave up four hits, walked three and struck out three.

The Marlins placed infielder Tim Anderson on the bereavement list and infielder Otto Lopez on the paternity list and recalled infielders Tristan Gray and Xavier Edwards from Triple-A Jacksonville.


Guardians: Catcher Bo Naylor (left shoulder soreness) didn't play but was available as a reserve. Kansas City's MJ Melendez collided with Naylor on a play at the plate in the sixth inning of their game Thursday. Naylor was pinch hit for in the bottom of the inning.

Marlins: RHP JT Chargois (neck spasms) is scheduled for his third rehab appearance with Jacksonville on Sunday after outings on Wednesday and Thursday.


RHP Ben Lively (5-2, 2.84) was set to Saturday for the Guardians. The Marlins have not announced a starter.
