Miami left fielder Adam Duvall had two home runs and matched a club record with seven RBIs to help lead the visiting Miami Marlins to a 14-8 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. Duvall was 4-for-5, hit his third and fourth home runs, and added a double to lift his batting average from .160 to .267. Miami came up with season highs with the 14 runs and hits (17), and seven of its starting position players got at least one hit.
The Miami Marlins wanted to show they could hold their own against the team that has won three straight NL East titles and swept them out of the playoffs last season. Jesus Aguilar drove in the winning run with a leadoff double after Starling Marte was placed at second base, and Yimi Garcia shut down the Braves' Big Three in the bottom half to preserve the win. It's only mid-April, but this one felt a little a little bigger to the Marlins, who were beaten in three straight by the Braves in the 2020 NL Division Series.
