Nick Wittgren only appeared for 1 2/3 innings through the series, but he had a lot of positive impact. He entered the opener on Tuesday to relieve Wei-Yin Chen with one out and two runners on in the fifth. Protecting a 2-0 lead, he started by getting Joc Pederson to fly out (+.037), although both runners advanced. He ended the frame by inducing Justin Turner into a hard lineout to Martin Prado (+.076).

Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly kept Wittgren in the game to pitch the sixth. Wittgren got Matt Kemp to ground out (+.031), Yasmani Grandal to fly out (+.021), and Cody Bellinger to fly out (+.013). He left the game as he found it, with the Marlins leading by a 2-0 count. The Marlins eventually won that one, 4-2.
