Welcome to this week’s The Good, The Bad, and The Road Marlins Recap. Let’s take a quick look at the recap- The Good: A Hech of a play in the 4th and the Bullpen; The Bad: the Marlins lose; and The Road: The Marlins road woes continue. Let’s look at a more in depth recap shall we?

The Good:

In the 4th inning, with runners on 2nd and 3rd, the Marlins were down 1-0 and just needed one more out to get out of their jam. Eric Young Jr. came up to bat, and with the count 2-0 and 2 outs he sent the ball right up the middle. It bounced off the mounded and it looked like it was going into the outfield. Out of nowhere came Adeiny Hechavarria to make a diving, spinning throw, and get out Eric at first to keep the game at 1-0. The bullpen also tried to keep us in the game. Carter Capps made his Marlins debut and went 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, and 3 SO for a great start to his Marlins career. Brad Hand also came in to go 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, and 1 SO. It wasn’t enough though…

The Bad:

…as the Marlins still fell to the Mets 4-0. Lucas Duda hit a RBI double in the 2nd, David Wright doubled in a run in the 5th, and Chris Young homered in Wright that same inning to give the Mets their 4 runs. The Mets won the series 2-1 which…

The Road:

…continued the Marlins road woes. The Marlins are now 2-10 on the road, the worst road record in the majors. Let’s hope tomorrow’s day off helps the Marlins regroup.

After that regroup the Marlins are on a 9 game home stand against the Braves, the Mets, and the Dodgers. If you are in Miami any of those days go out and support our Miami Marlins. If you are there May 4th, look me up because I will be there supporting our team. Until next time… Let’s go Marlins!
