Angels' Jefry Marte: Connects for fourth homer Friday
Marte went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 win over the Mariners.
Marte received another start at third base Friday and made the most of his opportunity by taking Marco Gonzales deep in the second inning. The 26-year-old has struggled to the tune of a .173/.270/.291 slash line in the majors this season, but his recent success with Triple-A Salt Lake (.356/.420/.594 in 24 games) earned him another shot with the Halos. The Angels have faced southpaws in their last two contests, so Marte's consecutive starts at the hot corner are coincidental and he will be on the short side of a platoon with Luis Valbuena until Yunel Escobar (oblique) returns from the disabled list.
