HOUSTON – Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Jesús Aguilar each hit two home runs to power the Miami Marlins to their fourth straight win with a 7-4 interleague victory over the Houston Astros Friday night.

Chisholm and Aguilar both had solo shots in the first inning before each hitting two-run blasts in the fifth to make it 6-1 in the first meeting between these teams since 2017.

The offensive fireworks came on a night when Marlins starter Pablo López exited the game in the fifth inning with a bruised right wrist after taking a comebacker off it.

The team announced that X-rays were negative.
