MIAMI – NL RBI leader Jesús Aguilar delivered a tiebreaking single in a six-run eighth inning, and the Miami Marlins beat Arizona 9-3.

The score was 3-all when Miguel Rojas led off the eighth with a double against Kevin Ginkel, and Rojas came home on Aguilar’s single.

Corey Dickerson followed with an infield single, and catcher Stephen Vogt’s throwing error allowed Aguilar to score all the way from first.

Lewis Brinson added a three-run homer off Alex Young for the Marlins, who totaled four runs while being swept last weekend in a three-game series at Washington.
