The Marlins Win The Series! The Marlins Win The Series! A series that is, as the Fish picked up their first series win since May 2nd against Philadelphia. Miami used a solid fill in start from Tom Koehler, and a bevy of relievers to nail down a 5-2 victory Sunday afternoon following Saturday’s 1-0, 13-inning walk off that broke an eight game losing streak. This stat wrap will run down the series as a whole.
- Ichiro Watch: Picking up three hits overall in the series, Ichiro moved to 42nd all time on the hits list, tying Babe Ruth.
- Giancarlo Stanton went just 1 for 12 in the series.
- Martin Prado knocked in three of Miami’s last six RBIs, following up a walk off hit Saturday night with a 2 for 4, 2 RBI Sunday.
- Dee Gordon Watch: Three game hitting streak, still leading the league.
- Dan Jennings was thrown in the pool for winning his first game , and then thrown under the bus by the Baltimore Orioles manager for his use of relief pitchers.
- At least none of Miami’s relievers cheated though, unlike Brian Masutz, who was tossed Saturday for having an illegal substance on his arm.
- Both Henderson Alvarez and Mat Latos found their way to the DL.
- Dan Haren is the only Marlins SP to start the year in the rotation, and to still be in it.
- Marcell Ozuna is batting 8 for 24 (.333) since moving to the No. 2 hole.
