HOUSTON (AP) — Jazz Chisholm Jr. wasn’t celebrating his accomplishments after hitting two home runs Friday night in a win over the Houston Astros for his second multi-homer game this week.
The Miami Marlins star was already looking to do more.
“I wouldn’t mind another one tomorrow and have three,” he said before flashing a huge grin.
Jesús Aguilar also homered twice to power the Marlins to their fourth straight win in the 7-4 interleague victory.
“We’re just here to enjoy it,” Chisholm said. “We’re just going to have fun every day, but we’re never satisfied with what we do. We’re going to keep on going. We’re not in first place, so we’ve got to just keep going.”
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 starter Pablo López exited in the fifth inning with a bruised right wrist after taking a comebacker off it. The team announced that X-rays were negative.
“With the X-rays coming back negative, you feel better,” manager Don Mattingly said. “It’s just a matter of getting the swelling out of there right away and see where it goes the next couple of days.”
Friday marked the fourth time in franchise history the Marlins have had two players hit multiple homers in a game and the first since Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones did it on May 23, 2015.
Chisholm, who has 12 home runs this season, also hit two Tuesday in a win over the Nationals. Aguilar’s first homer was the 100th of his career and he has eight this season.
