On Tuesday, the Miami Marlins got a major boost with the return of Jazz Chisholm Jr.
The Marlins star center fielder had been out since May 16 with right turf toe.
However, he made his return on Tuesday night as the Marlins opened up a crucial series at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox.
Chisholm had a night to remember against the Red Sox.
In his return from the injured list, he went 3-for-4 at the plate, driving in three runs and scoring two.
On Twitter, MLB Network posted some of his stats from last night’s win over the Red Sox at Fenway.

The Marlins busted out for 10 runs against the Sox and rolled to a 10-1 victory in the series opener.
The win put the Fish 12 games above the .500 mark and kept them within 6.5 games of the first-place Atlanta Braves in the National League East.
Miami has now won seven of their last 10 games and is riding a three-game winning streak.
Chisholm’s return from the injured list gave them a spark as they recorded 19 hits against a battered Red Sox pitching staff.
All of that was enough for staff ace Sandy Alcantara to pitch a gem against the Sox, allowing just one run over seven innings of work.
But Chisholm was the story of the game for the Fish, and he led the way for the Marlins as they took care of business in their series opener.
With their star center fielder back, the Marlins will look for a series victory.NEXT: The Marlins Have 2 Key Players Returning From The IL
