It’s Sunday again, and you know what that means. Welcome to this week’s edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Pitchers Marlins Recap. Here is the quick recap- The Good: The 6th inning; The Bad: We lost; and The Pitchers: Anthony DeSclafani and Jacob Turner. Let’s take a deeper look at this game, shall we?
Entering the 6th inning the Marlins were down 7-0 and all seemed lost, but these Fish don’t quit. Jeff Mathis started the inning off with a double and was moved up to 3rd with a sac bunt. Reed Johnson scored him with a double of his own. Ed Lucas lined out to the 2nd baseman and Giancarlo Stanton scored Reed with a single. Casey McGehee walked and Marcell Ozuna scored Stanton with a single. That would be all the scoring the Marlins would get that inning to cut the Mets lead to 7-3, but…
We still lost to the Mets 11-5 and the Mets took the series 3-1. Let’s move on to the pitchers.
Anthony and Jacob pitched 6.2 innings and gave up 14 hits, 11 runs, and only struck out 3. The 2nd and 3rd inning hurt the Marlins with the Mets scoring 2 runs in each inning. The 4th and the 7th hurt more with a 3 run 4th and a 4 run 7th. This was not the best game for the Marlins pitching but our pitchers are still young and will rebound from this.
Next up for the Fish are the Phillies in Philly for a 4 game series starting tomorrow. So root your Fish on. Let’s Go Marlins!
