Miami Marlins Minute 4/26

SWEEEEP. Break out the brooms folks, as the Marlins just pounded the visiting Washington Nationals 6-2 Sunday afternoon, outscoring them 17-4 in the series.  Perhaps more dramatic than that is the hitting gulf of 35-17 Miami put up this weekend, with the Fish actually outhitting the division favorites by a margin greater than their total tally.  Miami moved into sole possession of third place with the win.

  • Miami’s 14-hit day was a season high, and the most since a 22-hit day 9/26/14….against the Nats.
  • Miami is 5-1 since moving Martin Prado to the No. 2 hole; Prado is hitting .318 in that span.
  • Thanks to a stellar four hit effort, no one in baseball has more hits than Dee Gordon.
  • Probably not surprised Giancarlo Stanton is in the top ten for RBIs- but so is Adeiny Hechavarria.
  • Speaking of the Marlins’ sizzling shortstop, he hit for the cycle over the course of the series.
  • According to ESPNs Stats and Information, Miami’s three triples today was last matched in 2000.
  • Stanton found himself in a rundown that basically looked like this.  Except he was safe.
  • Miami’s bullpen pitched four scoreless, one-hit innings; they’ve allowed 1 ER in their last 13 2/3.
  • Ichiro pulled his average to .304 on the year, and has a 6-game streak; Miami’s 6-3 in his starts.
