Miami Marlins Stat Wrap Recap: Washington 7, Miami 4
Well, the first Jose Day of 2016 is in the books for the Miami Marlins. Jose Fernandez looked solid, but ultimately the Washington Nationals eked out a 7-4 victory Monday afternoon in Vierra. Had hoped for a better result considering Space Coast Stadium used to be the vernal confines of the Marlins, but no such love or luck from the old stomping grounds.
But fans of Fernandez can rest easy, and that was the priority in this one. As for the enemies of Edwin…just read ahead and see for yourself. While not much should be read into a solitary spring performance either way, consider initial prayers answered and first fears realized.
