Turner Field has been a house of horrors for the Miami Marlins over the years, but that wasn’t the case this week.
Mike Foltynewicz starts for the Atlanta Braves on Monday in the opener of a three-game home series against the Miami Marlins, and the best thing the right-hander can do is give his team innings.
With a franchise-record sixth straight losing season seemingly inevitable, the Marlins have been getting some production from Ichiro Suzuki, Adeiny Hechavarria and Cole Gillespie.
After a rare off night, Ichiro Suzuki got back to hitting. Suzuki had his first four-hit game in over two years, and Cole Gillespie drove in a season-high three runs to lead the Miami Marlins to a 9-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Don’t look now but the Miami Marlins are starting to string some wins together.
Yoenis Cespedes hit three doubles and drove in four runs, leading the Mets over the Miami Marlins 12-1 and putting them atop the NL East.
There is no doubt that the two teams starting a 3-game series at Marlins Park are going in the opposite directions.
Adeiny Hechavarria hit a three-run home run off Brandon Maurer with one out in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins topped the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Sunday.
While the underachieving Miami Marlins shed salary prior to the trade deadline, the San Diego Padres stood pat believing there’s still time to salvage their disappointing season.
A.J. Ramos forced home the tiebreaking run with a bases-loaded, four-pitch walk in the 11th inning, Jedd Gyorko added a two-run single and the San Diego Padres beat the Miami Marlins 8-3 Friday night.
