Walker’s HR, 3 RBIs Lead Diamondbacks Past Marlins 5-4 – CBS Miami


MIAMI (AP) — Christian Walker had a home run, double and three RBIs, and Arizona Diamondbacks held on to beat the Miami Marlins 5-4 Tuesday night.

Arizona starter Humberto Castellanos completed his longest outing of the season, pitching 5 2/3 scoreless innings. Castellanos (2-1) allowed four hits and struck out four.

Pavin Smith also homered and Ketel Marte drove in two runs for the Diamondbacks, who have won six of eight.

The Marlins lost their second straight after a seven-game winning streak.

For the second consecutive night, Miami rallied from a 5-0 deficit with four runs in the seventh inning.

The Marlins loaded the bases with two out against Arizona reliever Luis Frias. Jazz Chisholm Jr. hit a hard smash past first base that umpire Ryan Wills originally ruled foul. But a video review overturned the call and Chisholm was credited with a ground rule double, scoring Garrett Cooper and Brian Anderson.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo argued the reversal and was ejected.

Caleb Smith relieved Frias and surrendered Jesus Aguilar’s two-run single before retiring Miguel Rojas on a grounder.

Keynan Middleton pitched a perfect eighth and Joe Mantiply closed it out for his second save.

Marte’s ground rule RBI double in the fifth made it 3-0 and ended Miami starter Trevor Rogers’ outing after 4 1/3 innings. Cody Poteet relieved Rogers and allowed Walker’s two-run double.

Rogers (1-4) gave up five runs, six hits, walked two and struck out four. The 2021 NL Rookie of the Year runner-up, Rogers has won only one decision since June, 10 2021.

Leadoff homers from Walker and Smith in the second and third gave Arizona a 2-0 lead. Both shots off Rogers came on first pitches.

Castellanos retired the first nine before allowing consecutive singles to Chisholm and Aguilar in the fourth. But Miami didn’t break through after Jorge Soler grounded out, Jesús Sánchez popped out to third and Garrett Cooper grounded out.


The start of Arizona’s season has not been kind to Walker. The offensive outburst on Tuesday was Walker’s first multi-hit performance of the season. He began the day hitting .148 and was 2 for 17 on the team’s current road trip.


Marlins: IF Joey Wendle (soreness) sat out his second consecutive game.


LHP Madison Bumgarner (1-1, 1.17) will pitch the series finale for the Diamondbacks on Wednesday afternoon. The Marlins will start RHP Elieser Hernández (2-1, 5.75).
