Marlins Outdrawn by Double-A Affiliate in Series Finale vs. Mets

Adjust Comment Print

The Marlins scored three runs in bottom half of the fifth on an odd play when Starlin Castro hit a sacrifice fly with the bases loaded.

Marlins games have an over/under record of 6-6 so far in 2018. Pirates starter Jameson Taillon and Miami counterpart Trevor Richards kept the game scoreless into the later innings. Harrison left in the third inning after being plunked on the back of the left hand by a 96 miles per hour fastball from Jose Urena.

He said he could return to the team someday, but not until the organization puts a winning team on the field. "It's always tough to lose one of your key players". The focus here is to remain focused. He scored four times and hit his third homer off Junichi Tazawa.

But they might be without Harrison for a while. I like how the guys are at least going about their business.

Harrison missed the final month of the 2017 season after being hit by a pitch on the same hand.

The last time something like this happened? The first one was out of the way and I was able to settle a little bit.

"It's getting old", Ziegler said.

The Marlins' Double-A affiliate, the Jacksonville Jumbo, had more fans in attendance than yesterday's major-league game at Marlins Park.

"It may very well have been the best fastball performance we've seen (from him)", Hurdle said. "I don't believe the situation has had any intent". On Friday, Harrison went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Mattingly said Nova hit Shuck intentionally.

Ziegler (0-3) retired the first batter in the Pittsburgh ninth before Starling Marte reached on a bunt hit. "When it's done right, the message is fine, so I don't think it's going to cause a war or nothing". The errant throw allowed two more runs to score.

Bour's two-run homer to right, his third of the season, extended Miami's lead to 7-2 in the seventh.

Josh Bell had three hits and three RBIs for the Pirates.

Corey Dickerson didn't ask for permission with the game on the line. Both came up with Marte usually on base. "I knew I was having a good game". "Quite honestly, I didn't feel that great".

Urena (0-3) allowed eight hits and four runs in five innings for the Marlins (4-11), who went 1-5 on their homestand.

Marlins: C J.T. Realmuto (back) homered in his first rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter on Saturday. In his 14.1 innings and 2-0 record this year, Taillon has a 1.26 ERA with 16 Ks and two walks. The bullpen has a 4.82 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 8.8 K/9.

The team was bought by a group led by Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman in September.
