Donovan Solano hit a three-run homer off David Price to help the Miami Marlins beat Tampa Bay 5-3 on Wednesday night, extending the Rays’ longest losing streak in nearly five years to nine games. It is the second-longest losing streak in the major leagues this season.
Based on the way Carlos Villanueva has thrown the ball for the Chicago Cubs, they would appear to have a good chance to complete their first four-game series sweep in almost two years.
David DeJesus impacted the game with his first and last at-bat. After doubling and scoring a run to lead-off the game, DeJesus hit a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning to help lift the Chicago Cubs to a 3-2 win over the struggling Miami Marlins on Saturday night.
