That was a ball game! Welcome to the latest edition The Good, The Bad, and The Hitters Marlins recap. Let’s start off with a quick recap— The Good: the Marlins won 11-6; The Bad: Kevin Slowey’s short day; and The Hitters: the multiple Marlin players with multi-hits this game. Now with that out of the way, let’s move on to the full recap!

The Good:

The Marlins beat the New York Mets 11-6 to complete a 3 game sweep. This is our first sweep of the season and if the Marlins keep hitting like they did today there will be many more; but the hitters are in their own section that I will get to later.

The Bad:

This was a great game and win for the Marlins but there was one bad thing that happened in this game. Kevin Slowey gave up 6 runs in 4.1 innings. Of those 6 runs, 2 were solo home runs to Lucas Duda in the 2nd and Omar Quintanilla in the 3rd. Then in the 4th he gave up a 2 run homer to Ike Davis. This was not his best performance of the season but a team win is still a win. Enough with the bad, let’s get to those hitters!

The Hitters:

Today the Marlins had 4 players who had multiple hits this game: Juan Pierre, Ed Lucas, Marcell Ozuna, and Chris Coghlan.  Juan Pierre went 2-3 with 2 singles, 3 runs, 2 BB and his 14th stolen base of the year.  Next we move on to Ed Lucas who went a perfect 4-4 with 3 singles, a double, 2 runs, 2 RBI, and a BB.  What a day!  Speaking of days, after his hitting streak ended yesterday Marcell Ozuna went 3-5 falling short of the cycle without a Home Run, but he did put up 4 RBIs and 2 runs! Where one streak ends another is still going. Chris Coghlan extended his hitting streak to 9 games when he went 4-5 with 3 singles, a double, 1 run, and 2 RBIs. Did I fall into a time riff and get sent back to 2009? This is the Coghlan we have been waiting for. Finally, we can’t forget Greg Dobbs busting the game open for us with a 3 run Homer in the 8th. It feels so good when I can write all this great stuff!

Here is to many more sweeps this season. If the Marlins keep their bats alive like they did today that won’t be such a far fetch idea. So as always till next time, let’s go Marlins!
