Miami Marlins Index: Chris Archer Shuts Down Marlins

2 of 3

B-. Stats: 6.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 1 SO <p>Making his first start of the season, Jarred Cosart had a decent outing for the Marlins, overcoming a cut on his hand he sustained batting in the third inning. Cosart struck out just one hitter and walked 3, which led to him working out of trouble most of the night. He threw 51 of his 86 pitches in the 5th and 6th inning. All three of the hits Cosart allowed went for extra bases. Cosart’s 1.50 ERA may look nice, but his 4.03 FIP and 5.21 xFIP paint a better picture of how he pitched.  </p>. SP. Miami Marlins. JARRED COSART

C. Stats: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 SO <p>Good news, Mike Dunn struck out two hitters and continues to do well in that department. The bad news, he gave up a solo home run to <strong><a href=. RP. Miami Marlins. MIKE DUNN

B. Stats: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 SO <p>Nice bounce back game for Dyson, after walking in two runners with the bases loaded Friday. Relieving Dunn in the 8th, Dyson struck out the only two batters he faced in the 8th. His sinker had really good sink to it. After getting two ground ball outs to begin the 9th, Dyson allowed back-to-back singles and a stolen base, but still worked out of the inning on a great play by <strong><a href=. RP. Miami Marlins. SAM DYSON

Stats: 7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 SO <p>Chris Archer was dominant in this ballgame, shutting down the Marlins lineup and out pitching his counterpart Jarred Cosart. Archer was only at 84 pitches through 7 innings and if we were in May or June, he’d likely would have had a chance to complete this game.</p>. SP. Tampa Bay Rays. CHRIS ARCHER. A
