MIAMI (AP) — Jorge Soler hit a two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Miami Marlins rallied to beat the Washington Nationals 5-4 on Tuesday night.

The Marlins were down to their final out when Garrett Cooper doubled off Nationals reliever Hunter Harvey (2-1). Luis Arraez singled to score Cooper and pull Miami within 4-3. Pinch runner Jon Berti stole second before Soler drove a 3-2 pitch from Harvey over the wall in left-center field for his 10th home run and the victory from behind.

Arraez and Cooper each had two hits, Andrew Nardi (3-1) pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the win for the Marlins.

Trailing 2-1, the Nationals scored three runs in the eighth inning against relievers Huascar Brazoban and Steven Okert. Jeimer Candelario hit a game-tying single off Brazoban, and Dominic Smith tagged in Okert for a two-run single and a 4-2 lead.

Washington starter Josiah Gray allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked three. The right-hander escaped a two-out threat with the bases loaded in the seventh by retiring Soler with a force out.

Miami scored twice in the second on a fielding error by Gray to take a 2-0 lead. Jean Segura and Peyton Burdick hit one-out singles and Nick Fortes walked before Joey Wendle grounded out to first baseman Smith. Smith forced Fortes out on second, but Gray dropped shortstop CJ Abrams’ relief throw as he covered first, allowing Segura and Burdick to score.

Washington’s Lane Thomas hit a solo home run in the sixth inning to cut the deficit to 2–1. Thomas drove an 0-1 pitch from Marlins starter Jesús Luzardo 364 feet over the wall in right field for his fifth home run of the season.

Luzardo was picked up after six innings. The lefty allowed one run, five hits, struck out seven and walked one

Earlier Tuesday, the Miami Marlins placed star center fielder Jazz Chisholm Jr. on the 10-day disabled list with a turf injury to his right toe.
