Miami Marlins Minute 5/2

And that’s four consecutive series wins for the Marlins, who evened their record at 12- 12 on the year thanks to a 7-0 smackdown of Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday afternoon in Miami. The Fish will look to play for sweeps in tomorrow’s tilt, which would lift them over .500 for the first time this season.

  • Every Marlins position player had a hit today…except Giancarlo Stanton.
  • Gordon watch: 3 for 3, 3 runs, 2 SB, 8 game hit streak, and batting a modest .440
  • Lucky 13: Miami had 13 hits for the second game in a row.
  • Speaking of consecutive baker’s dozens, Jeff Baker got his first start and second hit of the year.
  • Justin Bour’s pinch-hit streak came to an end. ¬†Michael Morse should still be worried (DNP)
  • Dan Haren beat the Phillies for the second time in his career with 6 shutout innings.
  • Miami’s bullpen has a scoreless streak of 13 2/3 innings.
  • The Marlins tagged Cole Hamels for 10 hits, tying the season high for most off a single pitcher.
  • Biggest hit of the game? Towering 3-run shot from Martin Prado to open the scoring.
