Following a tough six-game road trip, the Miami Heat return home for a week before beginning another long stretch of games outside of South Beach. They hope their defense is waiting for them there.
The game dragged on for nearly 4 hours as five Tampa Bay pitchers combined to throw 185 pitches, yet they allowed only one run. But it was a win. Tampa Bay wiggled out of several jams Friday night to beat the slumping Miami Marlins 5-1.
