Hacking runner Tyler Wade slipped home when Marlins’ Miguel Rojas shot in the ninth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels swept a series of two-strings with a 4-3 win over Miami on Tuesday night.

Anthony Rendon hit Homer by two rounds and Jack Mayfield earned a triple RBI for the Angels, who went 3-3 in their season opener home.

Jazz Chisholm hit Homer with a tie twice in the seventh inning and Jesus Luzardo had 12 career strikes over five steep runs in his first appearance of the season with the Marlins, who lost four of five on the season-opening California road trip.

After Mayfield tied for one-time from Anthony Bender (0-1) at ninth, Wade’s steal from second base was confirmed by video review. Marlins thought Wade’s hind foot had been blocked by Chisholm.

Wade took the lead on the field and then scored when Rojas was unable to score for the deeply affected Stassi on the leveled field.

Closer Raisel Iglesias (1-0) made the ninth game 1-2-3 in favor of the Angels.

Luzardo was brilliant in the shadows of the late afternoon at Angel Stadium, scoring seven of the Hallos’ top 10 hits – including Shuhei Ohtani twice. He hit the side for fifth before head coach Don Mattingly pulled him in at 76 throws, leaving him tied with Dontrelle Willis and Wei-Yin Chen for the franchise record for left-handed strokes.

Patrick Sandoval allowed three hits and an unearned run over the course of four innings on his first start to the season with the Angels. The left family’s first start was supposed to be on Friday, but was postponed four days due to arm fatigue.

Rendon was stagnant 1 for 15 to start the season before pulling a slider from Tanner Scott to the short left porch at Angle Stadium in sixth to give Los Angeles a 3-1 lead.

Chisholm answered several minutes later with Homer on the right porch to tie her up again.

Adele’s fault

Miami took the lead in the third inning when Brian De La Cruz’s soft singles beat out Angels right-hander Joe Adele. The ugly two-rule bug allowed Garrett Cooper to score.

Adele, who turned 23 last week, is off to a rough start to his third season in the league, both domestically and on the field. The Angels dropped veteran player Justin Upton after spring training despite owing him $28 million in part to allow more playing time for Adele, one of the top prospects.

Red starts playing it

Angels batting coach Jeremy Reed has been fired for the first time in his career for controversy after Matt Duffy was called on the swing of a check to finish the fourth inning.

coach room

Marlins: Mattingly said Avicel Garcia’s back injury is improving. Garcia did not play in the series of two games.

Angels: SS David Fletcher went on to list for 10 days with a left thigh strain. The team called up Triple-A Salt Lake’s Andrew Velasquez, and the attacking player went 0-for-3 on his Halos debut.

next one

MARLINS: After a day off, Sandy Alcantara (0-0, 3.60 ERA) is expected to take the stack in Miami Thursday in the opening game at home against Philadelphia.

Angels: Ohtani (0-1, 1.93 ERA) starts the season for the second time Thursday at the Los Angeles Road Opening in Texas. He put the ball in the fifth inning against Houston last week.
