Reyes’ long home run in 6th propels Padres over Marlins
Reyes, called up May 14 from the minors, connected in the sixth off Straily (2-1) for the rookie’s third homer in six games and second in two days at Petco Park. San Diego scored four in the eighth to break the game open, with pinch-hitter Christian Villanueva producing a two-run single.
JT Riddle had an inside-the-park homer for the Marlins in the ninth.
Miami had won all five of Straily’s starts this year. But he elevated a changeup to Reyes, and his drive soared into the second deck in left-center to give the Padres a 5-4 edge.
That was the end of the night for Straily, who allowed four earned runs and seven hits.
Ross, who won his previous two starts, got a quick hook from manager Andy Green. The right-hander was decent in his 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs, six hits and a walk. He struck out four.
The Marlins chased Ross and scored three in the sixth to take their first lead of the game, 4-3.
J.T. Realmuto‘s triple scored Derek Dietrich after his leadoff single. Ross struck out Justin Bour on his 87th and final pitch. Stammen came on and Brian Anderson smacked a tying single. Two batters later, J.B. Shuck’s double gave the Marlins a 4-3 advantage.
The Marlins pulled to 3-1 in the fourth when Bour, who opened the inning with a double for his second hit, scored on Riddle’s double-play ball.
