The Marlins end the Dodgers’ winning streak with 5 home runs

Jorge Soler hit two of Miami’s five home runs in an 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, snapping their season-high, 11-game winning streak.

Miami won the first game of the three-game series, snapping a two-game losing streak. Jake Burger, Jacob Stallings, and Jazz Chisholm Jr. all hit home runs.

The power show was more than enough to help Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara (6-10), who allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings. He only walked one batter and struck out six.

Los Angeles, which hadn’t lost since August 5, got home runs from Mookie Betts, Max Muncy, and James Outman. Will Smith contributed a pair of hits.






In 3 1/3 innings, Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin (8-5) was pounded for 10 runs on eight hits. He walked four batters and struck out two.

Both leadoff hitters hit solo home runs to start their teams’ halves of the first inning, with Soler hitting his 31st and Betts hitting his 32nd.

With another single shot in the third, Soler put the Marlins back on top. Later in the inning, Miami took a 7-1 lead thanks to a three-run homer from Burger and a two-run blast by Stallings.

The Marlins continued to load it on in the fourth. Soler led off with a walk, and Luis Arraez followed with a double to set up Chisolm, whose one-out home run made it 10-1 and put an end to Gonsolin’s night.

Muncy’s homer in the fourth brought the Dodgers within 10-2, but Los Angeles appeared to surrender an inning later, pulling Betts and star first baseman Freddie Freeman from the game.

Miami went up 11-2 immediately after the duo left, thanks to Joey Wendle’s RBI triple in the fifth.

Los Angeles regained the lead in the bottom of the fifth on a solo shot by Outman.

After loading the bases with no outs in the ninth, the Dodgers came up empty, as Amed Rosario lined out, Outman struck out, and Miguel Rojas grounded out to finish the inning.

Shortstop Rojas pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning.
