Drew Steckenrider +.105
Steckenrider pitched a scoreless eighth inning, allowing a leadoff double to Jackie Bradley Jr. After Bradley advanced to third on a Mitch Moreland fly out to center field, he was pegged at the plate on a whiz-bang play by Marlins catcher Chad Wallach. The inning closed when Eduardo Nunez was caught stealing.
Justin Bour +.056
Bour had kind of a rough start to the season, going two-for-14 through the series with the Cubs. In the opener against Boston, Bour batted fifth, and hit into a 6-3 groundout just after Anderson’s homer in the second. He led off the fourth with a single, then flew out to short-left-center with two runners on for the second out of the sixth. He then struck out with runners on first and second for the first out of the eighth.
In game two, Bour flew out to open the second, then hit an RBI-double to score Anderson from first with two out in the fourth. He struck out for the second out of the seventh, then lined out to short with a runner on first to end the ninth. Bour drew a walk with two out and a man on first in the 11th, but was gunned down at the plate with the potential game-winner on Maybin’s double.
Junichi Tazawa +.032
Tazawa struck out one batter in 1 2/3 innings of work in Miami’s loss on Monday.
Jacob Turner -.003
Jacob Turner pitched two innings in the series opener, and allowed an earned run on three hits and a walk.
