After another record-tying night at Truist Park, it’s safe to say that Adam Duvall feels right at home in Atlanta. He matched a club record with seven RBIs as he led the Marlins to a commanding 14-8 win over the Braves.
The Marlins signed Duvall, who played with the Braves from 2018-2020, in the offseason to add power to their lineup, and he has not disappointed in his return to his former home park. Duvall came into this series with just three hits in his 22 plate appearances, which forced manager Don Mattingly to move the outfielder from the cleanup spot in the lineup down to the No. 5 spot.
Duvall felt right at home in Truist Park on Tuesday as he put on a show, going 4-for-5 with seven RBIs and two home runs.
Duvall is now the sixth Marlin with seven RBIs in a game, and the first since Brian Anderson had seven against the Nationals on Sept. 18 of last year. He is no stranger to making history in Atlanta. It was on Sept. 9 of last year when Duvall tied a Braves club record with nine RBIs in a 29-9 rout of the Marlins at Truist Park. He posted a .938 OPS at home in 2020, and also homered in Monday’s win against Atlanta.
