Miami Marlins Minute 5/3

With the series already won, Miami all but emptied their bench Sunday afternoon, sitting three starters.  After a promising start, things unraveled quickly.  Miami dropped the final game of the series to the Philadelphia Phillies, losing 6-2.

  • Dee Gordon sat for the first time this season.
  • Donovan Solano started in his place…and had two errors.
  • Ichiro led off for the first time this year, and stole two bases.
  • In one inning.  After swiping third, he scored on a sac fly in the 1st.
  • Jhonatan Solano drove in brother Donovan on an RBI double.
  • Martin Prado and JT Realmuto also got the day off.
  • In fairness, all three backups (Brignac being the other) got hits.
  • In unfairness, Justin Bour did not start; Michael Morse went 0-4.
  • 6/20/13-7/04/13:  Last time Miami won four straight series.
