“I want to thank God. I've never hit two home runs in my career here in the MLB. I hit two in the (World) Baseball Classic, but that one doesn't count. It counts for my country, but it's amazing. I hit two home runs! I have never felt this way. “I'm not trying to hit home runs, but I did it,” he said, very happy. Luis Arraez, according to MLB.com.

It was the first time in his career, which dates back to 2019, when he debuted with the Minnesota Twins, that he achieved a multi-home run matchup.
This happened last Friday as the Miami Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves 9-6. With those blows and Saturday for another victory, this time 11-5, he achieved a personal record for a harvest in the majors with ten.
This number of home runs by the left-handed slugger surpassed last year's eight, achieved with the “twins.” He plans to finish the year with twelve hits. Additionally, Miami improved its record to 7-2 when “La Regadera” puts it in the stands.
Luzardo by sweep
And this afternoon from one forty past one, Jesús Luzardo has the mission of commanding the sweep against the “tomahaws.”
This year they lost 6-3 in their only start against Atlanta on May 5.2. In XNUMX stretches he allowed seven hits (a home run by Matt Olson) for four runs (three earned) with three walks and five strikeouts.
However, the “furios” in general do not hit him well. Of his compatriots, Acuña Jr., he is 8-2 (.250) with just one RBI; and Orlando Arcia 4-1 (.250), a double.
Very dangerous is Austin Riley, who averages 308-for-13 (.4) (two doubles) and RBI. Aside from the home run this year, Olson is barely hitting .083 (13-1) with two RBIs; Eddie Rosario 3-for-2 (.667) with a double; Ozzie Albies 7-for-1 (.143), also with a two-pointer; Sean Murphy (.200) 5-for-1 with a double and RBI; and Michael Harris II 3-0 and pushed... Anyway, if Miami sweeps it will put itself in the fight for the wild cards.
