Marlins Lose Rubber Game in Heartbreaking Fashion



Credit: Marlins Twitter

The Miami Marlins (3-13) had a golden opportunity to win their first series of the season against the Atlanta Braves (9-5) but had their hearts broken in the most gut-wrenching fashion. With the Fish leading 7-6 in the top of the 9th inning, relief pitcher Tanner Scott had Marcell Ozuna in an 0-2 count with two outs, a strike away from the Fish winning their first series of the year, when Ozuna hit a three-run home run that gave the Braves a 9-7 lead. The Marlins were unable to capitalize in the bottom of the 9th and lost the rubber game in heartbreaking fashion.

For the Fish, the bad news continued as Jake Burger, who has been their best hitter, was placed on the injured list with an oblique injury. Burger has been the Marlins’ most consistent hitter this year and has been at the heart of most of the Marlins’ scoring. However, there is some good news for the Marlins, pitching-wise. The Marlins activated Edward Cabrera, who will provide much-needed help to a rotation that has struggled this year with key injuries to Sandy Alcantara, Eury Perez, and an untrustworthy bullpen. Bringing Cabrera back should give the Marlins some breathing room, allowing them to field at least three competent starters: Luzardo, Cabrera, and Meyer.

Speaking of Max Meyer, he has been the most impressive pitcher on the Marlins’ staff this year. Against the Braves, Meyer pitched six innings, allowing just one run with seven strikeouts, as the Marlins won their only game of the series 5-1. Meyer is now 2-0 on the year with a 2.12 ERA and is largely responsible for two of the three wins this year for the Fish.

Miami continues their homestand against the San Francisco Giants tonight at 6:40 PM, and Edward Cabrera is expected to make his first start this season.
