The Miami Marlins won two out of three games in their weekend series against the Cleveland Guardians. The first game on Saturday was a doubleheader that the Marlins won both games, 6-1 and 3-2, respectively. In the first game, Bryan De La Cruz hit a solo home run in the sixth inning, and Luis Arraez had a two-run single in the seventh, leading Miami to victory. Reigning NL Cy Young winner Sandy Alcantara was scratched with biceps tendinitis, but Devin Smeltzer gave up only one run in four innings, and the bullpen finished the four-hitter.

In the second game, Garrett Hampson drove in two runs, and Luis Arraez and Bryan De La Cruz each had three hits as Miami won 3-2. Braxton Garrett pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing one run, and A.J. Puk got his fourth save. Miami won both games of a doubleheader for the 12th time in franchise history.

In the third game on Sunday, Miami lost 7-4 to Cleveland, spoiling the Marlins’ chance of sweeping the series. Cleveland’s Logan Allen made his major league debut and held the Marlins to a solo homer while striking out eight over six innings. Cleveland’s offense was sparked by Amed Rosario, who went 4 for 5 with two singles, a triple, and a double while scoring three runs. José Ramírez and Josh Bell hit back-to-back homers in the third. The Marlins had chances to score in the eighth and ninth innings, but they couldn’t capitalize.

The Fish had a successful series against a tough opponent, taking two out of three games. Miami’s offense was led by Luis Arraez, who had seven hits and two RBIs in the series, while Bryan De La Cruz had five extra-base hits in one day, becoming the first Marlins player to achieve this feat. The pitching staff was also impressive, holding Cleveland to only four runs in the series. Although they couldn’t complete the sweep, the Marlins who are 12-10 to start the year will look to carry this momentum into their next series against the NL East leading Atlanta Braves on Monday. The Fish are only two games out of first place in the NL East.
