MIAMI – Pablo Lopez took advantage of an extra day of rest by allowing only two runs in a career-best eight innings, Corey Dickerson hit a two-run triple and the Miami Marlins opened a homestand by beating the Colorado Rockies 6-2.
Starling Marte had three hits and a slew of Marlins had two apiece for Miami, which was coming off a 1-8 road trip.
Jesus Aguilar drove in two runs, while Jazz Chisholm and Jon Berti each scored twice.
Charlie Blackmon had two of Colorado’s five hits. The Rockies fell to 4-23 on the road this season, an ominous start to a six-game swing away from home.
