The Miami Marlins just finished off winning three of four from the Colorado Rockies, but lost in the one loss was what happened to Rockies All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on Wednesday.
Inning after inning, the Colorado Rockies kept pitching out of jams to preserve a lead, until a blooper dropped in shallow left field in the eighth inning for the Miami Marlins.
CBS Local Sports breaks down the top players in the outfield for your fantasy baseball draft.
Rob Brantly dashed home on a wild pitch to score the game’s first run, and Donovan Solano stretched the lead for the Miami Marlins, who earned a rare series win in Colorado.
Ricky Nolasco gave up three runs in the first inning, then settled down to set a franchise record for career victories when the Miami Marlins rallied past the Colorado Rockies for the second night in a row Tuesday, 7-6.
The Colorado Rockies at last gave Aaron Cook plenty of run support, and they did it by rewriting their history of ineffectiveness against Ricky Nolasco.
Four home runs is normally enough for the Colorado Rockies to win at home. They weren’t enough against Anibal Sanchez and the Florida Marlins on Tuesday night.
The toll from throwing 123 pitches showed on Anibal Sanchez. The Florida Marlins right-hander wore one big bag of ice on his right shoulder, another on his right arm and yet another on his right thigh as he settled into a chair with a grimace.
