Jazz Chisholm Shines Despite Marlins’ Loss

It was another big game for Jazz Chisholm, but again, it was all the runs the Miami Marlins were able to generate in another loss. Chisholm went 2-4 with a solo home run, a double, and a stolen base in a 2-1 loss to the San Diego Padres on Monday at Petco Park in San Diego. Chisholm accounted for two of the Marlins’ four hits and scored the team’s only run with his third-inning shot to tie the game at one. With a stolen base in the eighth inning, Chisholm is now up to eight home runs and 10 stolen bases. He also extended his hitting streak to six games. In his last 15 games, he is hitting .322 with a .559 OPS, three doubles, three home runs, four RBIs, and five runs scored.
