Per Stat Wrap recap rules, here’s the nine most important things you likely missed from yesterday’s Miami Marlins action, one stat for each inning played. Sure, you likely have a myriad of apps that do this for you; one of mine told me about all the fun I missed midway through a thrilling lecture on public speaking.
But only here do you get our sparkling enthusiasm, no cluttered box score to sort through, and just the facts you really need to know.
- Jose’s line: 5 IP, 4 Ks, 1 Walk, no hits. Electric.
- A.J. Ramos pulled down his first save of the spring.
- That put the cherry on four innings of 1-hit relief.
- The Marlins racked up 9 hits, on a knuckleballer no less.
- And no, it wasn’t Tim Wakefield.
- Dee Gordon paced the regulars with a 2-4 day.
- Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton each had an RBI.
- Forget the NL DH talk. Marlins SPs have hits in two straight.
- Marcell Ozuna put up two hits as well, but was pulled after appearing to hurt himself sliding into second. Worth watching.
