Miami Marlins Minute 6/17

Seems like a fair bet the Yankees didn’t see that one coming.  On the heels of a see-saw struggle in Monday’s opener, former Fish Nathan Eovaldi found himself blown out of the water by the Marlins’ biggest offensive splash of the season.  For a more detailed write up, check out my full recap at Marlin Maniac.  In an event, let’s break down Tuesday’s 12-2 pounding.

  • Every Marlins position player had a hit in the first inning, a franchise record.
  • Eight runners crossed the plate in the first, a franchise record.
  • Every position player but Justin Bour had two hits or more.
  • Every position player but Christian Yelich had at least one RBI.
  • And before you think this is hating on David Phelps: 7 innings of two-run ball.
  • That makes six straight starts by the rotation of 3 ER or less.
  • Giancarlo Stanton Watch: Clubbed his 24th HR to fatten his MLB lead.
  • Dee Gordon Watch: Three hit night to boost his average to .357
  • Derek Dietrich had two hits in that first inning, continuing his storybook return from Monday.
