    J.T. Realmuto hit a grand slam during a five-run seventh inning and the Miami Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 6-2 on Saturday. Miami stopped a three-game skid and ended the Rockies' winning streak at four. Trevor Richards (2-4) gave up one run and three hits in six innings, striking out eight. He also singled for his first hit in the majors. The 25-year-old rookie was 0-3 with a 7.40 ERA on the road coming into the day at Coors Field. Rockies starter Tyler Anderson (4-3) was sharp before allowing three consecutive hits to open the seventh, including an RBI single from pinch-hitter Justin Bour that chased the lefty and put the Marlins ahead 2-1. Starlin Castro then loaded the bases after video review reversed an out call and ruled him safe with an infield single. An out later, Realmuto fouled off three pitches against struggling reliever Bryan Shaw before lining a shot over the right-field wall. It was Realmuto's second career grand slam. His first came on Aug. 12, 2015 against the Boston Red Sox. Gerardo Parra hit a solo homer in the seventh to bring Colorado within 6-2. Parra drove both runs for the Rockies, who fell back below .500 (38-39). Derek Dietrich hit his 10th home run of the season off Anderson in the fourth to put the Marlins up 1-0. Colorado tied it on Parra's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the inning. TRAINER'S ROOM Marlins: SS Miguel Rojas was a late scratch with soreness from a bruise on his left hand. Rockies: RHP Scott Oberg (back strain) and LHP Mike Dunn (shoulder strain) were slated to begin rehab assignments in Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday. TRANSACTION The Rockies called up INF Pat Valaika and optioned RHP Yency Almonte to Triple-A Albuquerque. WELCOME BACK The Rockies welcomed back a few of their former players as the organization celebrated their 25th year anniversary. Todd Helton and Larry Walker were among those in attendance. Prior to the game, they returning players posed for selfies with fans and a couple of them took a few swings in a batting practice. Former Rockies third baseman Vinny Castilla — who is 50 — hit a couple well over the fence in left to the oohs and ahhs of the crowd. UP NEXT Marlins: LHP Caleb Smith (5-6, 4.03 ERA) takes the mound for the series finale Sunday. Smith has gone 3-4 with a 4.89 ERA on the road this season. Rockies: RHP German Marquez (5-7, 5.20 ERA) is 1-2 with a 7.77 in his four starts in June. He got the win against the Mets on Tuesday after allowing four runs in six innings.
  • Protesters confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at a showing of a documentary about children's TV host Fred Rogers, and they questioned the Republican's stands on immigration and health care. The Tampa Bay Times reports Bondi received a police escort Friday when several members of Organize Florida confronted her as she left a Tampa theater after seeing 'Won't You Be My Neighbor' about Mr. Rogers. The demonstrators questioned Florida joining a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act and Bondi's general support of President Donald Trump's immigration policies. This is at least the third time a Republican official has been confronted at a public place in recent days over the president's immigration policy that separated parents entering the country illegally at the Mexican border from their children. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders left restaurants in the Washington, D.C., area after facing friction there. Bondi protester Maria Jose Chapa said was an impromptu demonstration after someone spotted the attorney general, who has a national following as a contributor on Fox News and as a friend of Trump. Video shows that as Bondi and her companion left the theater surrounded by officers, Chapa followed her yelling. 'What would Mr. Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi!' Chapa hollered. Another person shouted at Bondi, 'You're a horrible person!' Onlookers stared agape as the procession moved past. Bondi told the paper in a phone interview Saturday that the demonstrators' actions didn't comport with the lessons taught by Mr. Rogers. 'We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences,' Bondi said in interview. 'That's what Mr. Rogers is all about. We all believe in free speech, but there's a big difference there.' When the Times asked Chapa if the documentary's star would have handled the situation the same, she replied, 'I'm not Mr. Rogers. I don't have the poise or temperament of Mr. Rogers.
  • The Latest on a protest outside a Homestead, Florida, facility where about 100 immigrant children separated from their parents are being held (all times local): 4:45 p.m. Hundreds are protesting outside a Florida facility where immigrant children separated from their families are being held. About 100 children separated from their parents at the Mexican border are being held at the Homestead detention center. Maria Bilbao said Saturday she joined the protest because she came from Argentina and entered the U.S. without permission 16 years ago with her then 9-year-old son, so she understands the fear of being separated from a child. She called the government's former policy of separating children 'disgusting.' She said she was a cleaning woman until she became a legal resident last year. She now works for one of the groups that organized the protest. ___ 4 p.m. Florida Sen. Bill Nelson and four of the state's Democratic House members toured a detention center where about 100 immigrant children taken from their parents are being held. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz told reporters Saturday in Homestead that she and Nelson should have been allowed access Tuesday when they first went to the facility but were refused. She said being told to return four days later prevented them as members of Congress from performing their duty to oversee government operations. She said at most they should have been kept out for a few hours. Rep. Darren Soto said the decision by the facility's administrators to deny Nelson and Wasserman Schultz access earlier made him wonder what they were hiding. Those three were joined by Reps. Frederica Wilson and Ted Deutch.

  • A major public memorial is planned at a Florida arena for rising rap star XXXTentacion (ex-ex-ex-ten-ta-see-YAWN), who was shot and killed this week. The family of the 20-year-old rapper whose real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy announced Saturday that a memorial will be held next Wednesday at BB&T Center, a 20,000 seat arena that is home to hockey's Florida Panthers. A flyer posted to XXXTentacion's Instagram page invites fans to 'come say your final goodbye.' The rapper was fatally shot in his BMW as he left an upscale motorcycle dealership in Florida on Monday. A 22-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder. XXXTentacion, who sported dreadlocks and facial tattoos, had his second album reach No. 1 in March and had a top 10 hit with 'Sad!' ___ This story has been corrected to show that XXXTentacion's real name is Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, not Dedrick Devonshay Williams.
