3. The offense did exactly what you would hope for, all day

Julio Teheran used to a guy that frustrated the Marlins, back when they were a slugging team of budding superstars. This years’s team is scrappy and they hit pretty well with runners on base. They added on runs all day, and nothing frustrates a team more than when their opponent keeps countering their comeback attempts with more runs. Lewis Brinson hit his first grand slam, Miguel Rojas homered twice, and the offense shows signs of being decent support for a pitching staff that despite today, is still much better than last season.
