Solano blasted a two-run home run Tuesday to help the Marlins beat the Cardinals.

Relegated primarily to a bench role as the Marlins search for solutions at second base, Solano took advantage of his starting nod Tuesday, touching up Adam Wainwright for a two-run shot. The long ball was just his second of the season and seventh in 797 career at-bats. Solano may earn some additional playing time following the strong effort, but his .258/.309/.338 slash line over 151 at-bats this year leaves a lot to be desired at the plate.

Donovan Solano reached base in all five plate appearances in Tuesday's win over the Braves, drawing a walk, hitting a double, and tallying three singles.

It's the first four-hit game of Solano's career. The Marlins could only bring him around to score once, however. Solano hasn't had much to write home about at the plate otherwise, as his slash line has improved to a still-paltry .261/.309/.322 with one home run and 12 RBI in 126 plate appearances.

Donovan Solano hit his first homer -- a three-run shot off David Price -- to lead the Marlins to a 5-4 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

That had to feel good for Solano, who had been on the roster all year but had come into tonight with just 35 at-bats. The start against Price was his first since April 22, as he had been completely limited to a bench role since the return of Ed Lucas from the DL. Since he'd seemingly be better off playing regularly in the minors, the Marlins will almost surely eventually replace him on the bench with a veteran, whether it's Rafael Furcal or Miguel Tejada.

Donovan Solano will replace Ed Lucas (hand) on the Opening Day roster.

Solano was optioned to the minors earlier in the day Thursday, but he'll rejoin the club now that Ed Lucas is headed to the disabled list with a non-displaced fracture in his left hand.
