Dairon Blanco laid down a suicide squeeze bunt to drive in the winning run and walk it off against Seattle 7-6. In 40 games with big team the Cuban has driven in 13 runs and stolen 14 bases.
Jorge Soler went yard for the 29th time on the season in a three-run eighth inning for the Marlins to seal Miami’s 5-1 victory over the Astros. The slugger has homered three times in his last seven games.
Last night was legendary!

Adolis García swatted his 30th longball of the season, knocked in two runs and scored twice on the evening to do his part in Texas’ 12-0 blanking of Los Angeles. The outfielder from Ciego de Ávila, Cuba is also second in the majors with 91 RBIs.
Julio Pablo Martínez also joined in on the act with two hits, a run batted in and scored three times to join in on the act. In his short time in the big show the left-fielder is hitting a robust .400.
