DENVER, CO – SEPTEMBER 25: Starting pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne /

Bryan Holaday -.167

Holaday batted eighth and started the game as the backstop in the opener. He led off the third with a ground out. In the fourth, with runners on first and second, Holaday grounded into a 4-6-3 double play to put a fork in Miami’s chance to score. Holaday was replaced in the lineup in the top of the fifth by pitcher Junichi Tazawa, and in the field by Tomas Telis. In game two, Holaday struck out swinging for the final out of the 12th inning.

Odrisamer Despaigne -.169

After a win in relief after pitching a flawless 17th inning on Friday, Despaigne got no decision in Miami’s loss on Saturday. His third appearance of the season was also in relief. He pitched the 11th for the Marlins, and allowed a double to Eduardo Nunez and an RBI-single to Andrew Benintendi. He then induced Hanley Ramirez to line out and J.D. Martinez to whiff.

Starlin Castro -.222

Castro batted third for the Marlins, and started the opener by striking out to end the first. He singled with two-on and two-out in the third, singled to lead off the fourth, and doubled to open the eighth. He then scored on Cameron Maybin’s single. Castro punctuated his three-hit night by scoring Tomas Telis on a ninth-inning RBI-groundout.

Castro started out game two with another single, but was otherwise 0-for-5 in the 13-inning loss.

Chad Wallach -.227

Wallach pinch hit for Jacob Turner in game one, grounding out with nobody out and runners on second and third in the ninth inning. He started behind the plate in game two, flying out to right to open the third inning. He struck out for the second out of the fifth and grounded out to lead off the eighth. Later, he struck out with one out and a runner on first in the 10th and struck out again for the second out of the 12th. His stellar defensive plays did not factor into his WPA.
