Home Run Derby in Miami

Monday's game between the Miami Marlins and Colorado Rockies served as a warmup for next month’s Home Run Derby, with the teams combining for eight runs on eight solo homeruns. The Rockies prevailed 5–3, but the teams now share the Major League record for runs scored in a game only on solo bombs. The previous record was five.

Of the thirteen batters to come to bat, five hit homeruns. Miami’s Marcell Ozuna and Colorado’s Mark Reynolds each hit two. Here are all eight:
