MIAMI – The Miami debut at Sterling Mart was celebrated with a tiebreaking homer in the eighth episode, with the Marlins helping the Toronto Blue Joyce to a 3-2 lead on Tuesday night.
Marte, who earned a trade with Arizona on Monday, drove a 1-0 pitch in the deep left midfield from Shan Yamaguchi (1-2) for his third homer. He also reached an error in the sixth and scored twice from Garrett Cooper to the first.
James White (1-0) got the final two outs in the eighth to win and Brandon Kintzler had a perfect ninth for his eighth save.
John Barty returned to the country for Miami, which went back above .500 with the win. It has dropped the last eight home games.
Robbie Roy made his debut for Toronto, playing 3/3 innings in comfort to Julian Marioweather. On Monday, Roy, who came into the trade with Diamondbacks, allowed two runs, one achievement and four hits.
Jonathan Villa, from Marlins to Blue Jays, continued the first run of the game with the help of a grounder for the first time. But he also made the mistake that put Marty in sixth place.
Barty’s second homer tied it at 1 in the third. However, Derek Fisher put Toronto ahead with a sacrificial fly in fourth place.
