Stat Wrap 5/1: Miami Marlins Blown Out By Brewers 14-5
Eventually, a Marlins starting pitcher was going to drop the ball during this dazzling run of dominance they’ve enjoyed the past week. Tom Koehler would have probably preferred that ball have not shattered into quite so many pieces though.
Koeher was lifted from the game in the 3rd inning after having allowed five earned runs and left with the bases loaded, and could only sit back and watch as Cody Ege allowed all three of those baserunners to come around and score before going on to allow a few of his own. The Marlins saw their team seven-game win streak, the last six of which had been won a starting pitcher, snapped as they lost in blowout fashion to the Brewers by the final score of 14-5.

A game after tying the franchise record for runners left on base at 17 LOB, the Marlins stranded 11 Sunday afternoon. But in another similarity to Saturday, there were runs to be had. Marcell Ozuna homered, Derek Dietrich went 3 for 4 from the No. 3 hole (file that away), and two other Marlins regulars notched 3-hit afternoons as well in a game that saw every position player get a hit.
There was just no climbing out of that early hole, although the effort to do so was certainly heartening.
And now we Stat Wrap:
- Ichiro Watch: With a 1 for 5 day, give the legend 2,946 hits.
- Giancarlo Stanton didn’t homer, but has a 7-game hit streak.
- Not to mention a 7-game RBI streak.
- Martin Prado has a hit in 18 consecutive starts.
- Marcell Ozuna hit his second homer in in the last two days.
- And his fourth of the season. In 2015, that took until June 10th.
- J.T. Realmuto has a 7-game hit streak, and is now over .300.
- Tom Koehler had his worst start since 2013, giving up 8 ER.
- The worst part of the loss though might be this: grounding out as a pinch-hitter, Christian Yelich‘s on base streak came to an end.
