Miguel Rojas -.256
Rojas batted seventh for the Marlins in game one, and started his night by striking out with nobody on in the second. He lined out to deep right-center for the first out of the fourth, with runners on first and second. In the sixth, he fouled out with two runners on for the third out of the inning. He grounded out in the eighth with two runners on for out number two. Not a great night.

He hit a single to center off Craig Kimbrel with one out in the 10th, then stole second base, but was stranded there after a Lewis Brinson fly out. Rojas grounded out to open the 12th and close his night at the plate.
Lewis Brinson -.266
Brinson bunted out to lead off the first game, then hit a single with two outs in the third. He grounded out for the second out of the fifth, and flew out with one out and one on in the seventh. With a man on first in the ninth, he singled to center field. Not really a bad night.
