The Good, The Bad, and The Home Runs Marlins Recap 4/13/2014

Welcome back to this week’s edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Home Runs Marlins Recap. Let’s take a look at the quick recap- The Good: Casey McGehee and Garrett Jones finding their swings; The Bad: we lost; and The Home Runs: the Phillies’ 2 home runs. With the quick recap done let’s jump into a full breakdown of the game and see how the Marlins did.

The Good:

McGehee helped the Marlins score first in the 1st with a single that brought home Christian Yelich. McGehee also hit a ground rule double in the 3rd inning. McGehee, with 2-4 this game, bumped his batting average to .298 for the season. Jones may have struck out twice this game but he went 1-3 with a walk and a ball he sent deep over the right field wall to give the Marlins a 3-1 lead. This boosted his batting average from .217 to .224. Unfortunately, the 3-1 lead didn’t last.

The Bad:

The Marlins would lose their 7th game in a row and get swept for the second series in a row with the 4-3 loss they suffered to the Phillies today. Let’s see how the Marlins lost their 3-1 lead.

The Home Runs:

In the 3rd inning, with the Marlins up 2-0, Ryan Howard came up to the plate and faced Henderson Alvarez. With one mighty swing Howard sent that ball flying over the center field wall to cut the lead to 2-1. The Phillies tied the game with a two run double in the 5th inning. Chase Utley came up in the 8th to face Mike Dunn and took the lead with a shot over the right field wall, giving the Phillies a 4-3 lead. That is all the Phillies needed as they shut down the Marlins in the 9th 1-2-3.

The Marlins come back home tomorrow where they have had better success this season to face the Nationals. As always until next time… Let’s Go Marlins!
