Miami Marlins Minute 4/15

The bats stayed hot in Atlanta Wednesday afternoon, as the Marlins carved out a 6-2 victory to take the series from the Braves, winning their first series of the year.

  • Michael Morse hit the 100th home run of his career, and first this season.
  • Dan Haren notched his second quality start in as many tries, going seven innings while allowing just two runs on three hits.  That’s tied for the longest outing by a Marlins SP this year.
  • In one sense, it was the longest. Today marked the first time a starter topped 100 pitches.
  • After starting out the year with a perfect five games, Miami has an error in each of their last four.
  • In his first start this year, JT Realmuto 2 for 3 with a walk, reaching base in his first three trips before merely advancing the runners in his fourth at-bat.  Talking to you Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
  • Celebrating his 26th birthday, Adeiny Hechavarria went 3 for 3 with a home run and three RBIs.
  • Prior to today, the 7th/8th spots in Miami’s order had gone a combined 7 for 57.  Five of those hits were from Hechavarria.  Miami got a 5 for 6 line today from that part of the lineup.
  • The Marlins have won every game Adeiny Hechavarria has a hit so far this year.
  • Take a moment out of your day and thank Jackie Robinson- even if you don’t like baseball.
