John Mayberry Jr. is Mr. Extra Innings.
Ricky Nolasco was pretty good Saturday night. The way the Marlins are playing, though, he needs to be nearly unhittable.
One day after losing to Arizona 1-o, Ricky Nolasco struck out 11 and the Marlins stopped a season-high seven-game losing streak by beating the Diamondbacks 2-1 Sunday.
Brandon McCarthy pitched a three-hitter for his first win since being struck in the head by a line drive last season, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Miami Marlins 1-0 on Saturday night.
The Miami Marlins are inept this season, but the true problems facing manager Mike Redmond could possibly overwhelm even the greatest of managers.
There were cheers that went up from the crowd at Marlins Park Wednesday night, but it wasn’t for anything the baseball team pulled off. Instead, it was for highlights of the Heat’s series clinching victory over the Chicago Bulls; that is how bad the Marlins are this year.
The Miami Marlins’ offense is so bad it’s hurting the team’s pitching.
Times have become so tough for the Los Angeles Dodgers that even the offensively challenged Miami Marlins are finding ways to beat them.
