The Miami Marlins recent string of wins came to an end on Saturday, but the team is hoping to start a new one in Sunday’s rubber match at Wrigley.
Justin Bour is doing his best impersonation of Giancarlo Stanton as the Miami Marlins continue to win without arguably the top slugger in the majors.
Justin Bour hit a three-run homer with no outs in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins overcame three errors and a flurry of double-play grounders to rally past the San Francisco Giants 6-5 on Wednesday night
The Miami Marlins are hoping the homestand they begin on Tuesday goes as well as their last one.
Alex Rodriguez reached 2,999 hits with a pair of singles, and Carlos Beltran and Brett Gardner each had two-run homers, leading the New York Yankees to a 9-4 victory over the Miami Marlins on Thursday night.
Alex Rodriguez singled twice to raise his career hits total to 2,997, Michael Pineda carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning before allowing Christian Yelich’s home run, and the New York Yankees beat the Miami Marlins 2-1 Wednesday night.
The Miami Marlins have been perhaps the most disappointing team in baseball so far this season.
The Marlins had very few answers for Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon, whether it was pitching or batting, who walked away as the NL’s leader in wins after New Year beat Miami 4-3 on Sunday.
It’s been over a month since the Miami Marlins last swept a series. You have to go back to last July to find the last time they swept a team on the road.
It seems that with the Miami Marlins no matter what may change from one game to another, the end results are staying the same.
