Starling Marte launched his third home run of the season in Tuesday night’s loss to the Diamondbacks.
Marte finished 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. His solo shot off Takashi Saito in the seventh inning tied the game at 3-3 before the D’Backs broke it open late. Marte has struggled with plate discipline (13 strikeouts in 49 at-bats), but has also shown flashes of his dynamic potential. He’s now hitting .265 with three homers, seven RBI and two steals through his first 12 major league games.
