Quebec’s Charles Leblanc once again stood out at bat, hitting his fourth homer with the Miami Marlins in a 10-3 landslide victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday.
Leblanc sent the ball over the fence in the eighth inning allowing teammate Jon Berti to cross the plate.
The Quebecer was used in second place offensively by his manager and he took advantage of this chance. In his first at bat of the game, he hit a solid double. He also drew a walk and scored two runs.
He was on the trails when teammate Bryan De La Cruz hit a third-inning grand slam at the expense of Wade Miley. The Cubs pitcher allowed seven runs, but only three earned in as many innings of work in the loss.
Leblanc moved to first base defense for this game.
Marlins starting pitcher Edward Cabrera (6-3) allowed three runs in five innings of work. The rookie allowed three hits, walked three and struck out four.
