Los Angeles Dodgers
Josh Beckett wound up on the right side for the first time in a long time. Beckett earned his first victory in more than a year and the Los Angeles Dodgers extended Jacob Turner’s winless streak, beating the Miami Marlins 7-1 Tuesday night.
The Miami Marlins may be on a four-game slide, but they’re much more concerned with potentially losing Jose Fernandez for the rest of the season.
The Florida Marlins had to endure yet another early exit from one of their starters. And to manager Mike Redmond’s surprise, it was Tom Koehler’s turn to hit the showers early after throwing 15 scoreless innings in his previous two outings.
The Miami Marlins have been baseball’s best team at home, but they haven’t seen that success translate to the road.
Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez said he’s feeling fine and won’t miss a turn after being hit by a batted ball.
One of the few scares Jose Fernandez has gotten recently came in a collision with a coach prior to a contest he wasn’t even starting. As far as the competition goes, the Miami Marlins’ phenom has been fending it off with relative ease.
Pinch-hitter Carl Crawford hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning, and the Los Angeles Dodgers escaped several late-inning jams to beat the Miami Marlins 9-7 on Saturday night.
If Tom Koehler has figured out why he and the Miami Marlins are so tough to beat at home, he’s not saying.
The Miami Marlins are on their longest home win streak in nearly five years, thanks in large part to a very productive offense.
The House on Friday approved a process to help determine whether to use tax dollars for professional sports stadium projects but would exclude Major League Baseball from potential funding unless changes are made in how Cuban players are treated.
