The disaster that has become the Miami Marlins seasons is almost mercifully over for the team and for fans, but not without a player versus manager scandal that will likely end up with one or both of the parties gone at the end of the season.
R.A. Dickey earned his 19th victory with a strong performance, Jason Bay and Scott Hairston homered and the New York Mets barely held on in the ninth inning for their second straight home win, 4-3 over the Miami Marlins on Saturday.
Kris Medlen pitched eight innings of four-hit ball and the Atlanta Braves won his start for the 21st straight time, beating the Miami Marlins 3-0 on Wednesday night.
Ryan Ludwick hit a go-ahead single in the 11th inning to lift the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Although the Cincinnati Reds are running away with the NL Central, there are some growing concerns for Dusty Baker’s club. Their offense is suddenly sputtering, and ace Johnny Cueto seems like he’s hit a wall.
Ricky Nolasco tossed a four-hitter to shut out Washington for the second time in two weeks and Giancarlo Stanton homered for the third straight day to lead the Miami Marlins to an 8-0 win over the Nationals on Sunday.
The Miami Marlins did something pretty unfamiliar to the team Thursday, won a game. Powered by number one starter Josh Johnson, the Marlins knocked out the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 in an afternoon game.
Rickie Weeks homered twice and drove in four runs to help Wily Peralta win his first major league start and lead the surging Milwaukee Brewers over the Miami Marlins 8-5 on Wednesday night.
Cole Hamels pitched his second consecutive shutout for the Philadelphia Phillies in a 4-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Monday night.
It didn’t take long for newly acquired first baseman Carlos Lee to make an impact for the Miami Marlins. Lee doubled and scored in his Marlins debut. Starting pitcher Mark Buehrle struck out eight over 7.2 innings as the Marlins beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Thursday to split the four-game series.
