Brandon Lowe hit a three-run homer, a double, and brought in five runs, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 9-5 victory over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.

Tampa Bay outfielder Randy Arozarena got on base five times, with two walks, getting hit by pitches twice, and a single. In the sixth inning, Arozarena was hit on the helmet by a fastball from Marlins reliever Huascar Brazoban. He stayed in the game after being examined by Rays training staff.

“They obviously were worried and that’s why they came out,” Arozarena said through a translator. “Thank God it didn’t really hurt and I was able to stay in the game.”

Ahmed Rosario had three hits, Isaac Paredes had two hits and two RBIs, and Yandy Díaz added a double and single for the Rays. They have been dominant against the Marlins, winning 22 of 25 games since 2019.

Tampa Bay’s starting pitcher Ryan Pepiot gave up three runs in the first inning but held Miami scoreless for the rest of his six innings. Pepiot (4-2) allowed five hits and struck out eight.

“I didn’t get ahead of guys in the first inning, most of the hits were 1-0 (counts), so that’s a big difference,” Pepiot said. “You just have to bear down and go after it. As a starting pitcher, I was just trying to go as deep as possible.”

The Rays had a big fifth inning, scoring five runs. Paredes’ two-run single made it 6-3, and Lowe’s two-run double ended Marlins starter Jesús Luzardo’s night. Rosario’s RBI single off reliever Declan Cronin capped off the inning.

“A lot of guys contributed in a big way,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. This was the third time in Arozarena’s career that he reached base five times.

“Getting on base five times I was able to contribute and support the team,” Arozarena said.
