Video: Adeiny Hechavarria clubs a walk-off three-run home run for the Marlins

Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the ninth inning when he clubbed a walk-off three-run home run to left-center field against Padres reliever Brandon Maurer. Hechavarria’s effort helped the Marlins avoid a series sweep at the hands of the Padres, and halted their four-game losing streak. With the Phillies streaking, the floundering Marlins have picked up some steam in the race for the first overall draft pick in next year’s draft, as they only “trail” the Phillies by 2.5 games for the worst record in baseball.

Hechavarria has put together an adequate season, batting .279/.311/.375 with five home runs and 42 RBI while playing superb defense at shortstop.
