Miguel Rojas led off the first game with the Dodgers by grounding out to second (-.022). He then grounded out to shortstop with a runner on first to end the second. In the fifth, he grounded out again for the second out of the inning (-.022). He whiffed to end the seventh (-.020). Rojas collected his only hit of the night with two outs in the ninth and trailing by a run (-.042), a single.

Maybe Tuesday would be better for Rojas. Moved down to seventh in the order, he flew out with two runners on for the second out of the second inning (-.047). He flew out to left field to lead off the fifth (-.030). In the seventh, he flew out to the pitcher for the second out (-.028). He completed a fruitless night with a groundout for the first out of the ninth (-.002). Miami won that one, by a 3-2 final.

Rojas batted eighth in the finale. He drew a one-out walk with runners on the corners in the second (+.033). In the fourth, he singled to right with a runner on second base (+.080). His big blow came int he fifth, with a two-out, three-run moonshot for a 3-0 Miami lead (+.336). He grounded out with a runner on second for the second out of the seventh (-.011). In the ninth, he reached on a Corey Seager error with one out (+.003).

Although he was just 3-for-13 in the series, Rojas came through in the clutch for the Miami Marlins.
