Welcome back to this week’s edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Bottom of the First Marlins Recap. Today the Marlins ended their 11 game road trip against the San Francisco Giants. Let’s jump into the quick recap- The Good: The Bullpen; The Bad: Marlins lost; and The Bottom of the First: Marlins give up 3 runs. Let’s see how this game fully went down.

The Good:

After a rough start with the Jacob Turner as the starting pitcher, the bullpen came into the game in the 7th inning. First up was Carter Capps who only gave up 1 hit while striking out 2 batters. In the 8th out came Brad Hand. Brad gave up a walk to Tyler Colvin but struck out Mike Morse and did not give up a run in the inning. It was 2 great shutout innings for the bullpen, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough.

The Bad:

The Marlins lost to the Giants 4-1 which ended their 2 game winning streak and brought their road record to a league worst 6-17. At least we split the series with the Giants.

The Bottom of the First:

Turner 1st inning wasn’t a very good one. He hit the first batter he faced, had that batter score on a sac fly, and with 2 outs and no one on base he gave up 4 consecutive hits that scored another 2 batters. The inning finally ended when Brandon Crawford grounded out. Turner settled down for the rest of the game (only giving up a solo home run in the 5th), but by that time the damage was already done.

The Marlins return home on Tuesday against the Phillies to start their 6 game home stand. Come out to Marlins Park and support our Miami Marlins!
