Marte gave the Diamondbacks their first lead, one they never relinquished, with his third-inning homer, his fourth of the season. He didn't hit his fourth last year until June 10. A look at his batted-ball numbers indicates the 25-year-old has adjusted his launch angle. Marte went from a 29% flyball rate in 2018 to 43.4% this season. That's helped fuel his .508 slugging percentage and .254 ISO.
