Marlins Weekend Recap

on

The Miami Marlins defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1 on Friday night. Trevor Rogers pitched six-plus innings, allowing only one run and limiting the Diamondbacks to five hits while striking out seven and walking one. Garrett Cooper and Bryan De La Cruz each had three hits for the Marlins, and Cooper’s RBI single capped a five-run fourth inning against Arizona starter Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner pitched his longest outing of the season, but was pulled after the fourth inning as his ERA rose to 7.90. The Marlins have won their third straight game and are holding their own despite a tough schedule to open the season. Dylan Floro and A.J. Puk pitched a perfect eighth and ninth inning respectively to complete the six-hitter.


In the second game of a three-game series against the Diamondbacks, the Marlins won their fourth consecutive victory, with a 3-2 win. Gabriel Moreno’s RBI single gave the Diamondbacks the lead earlier in the game. Avisaíl García had two hits, and Garrett Hampson homered for the Marlins to tie the game. Luis Arraez hit a pinch-hit single in the seventh inning to break the tie and give the Marlins the lead for good.

The Marlins fell in the final game of the three-game series 5-0. It was the second consecutive loss for Sandy Alcantara who allowed 5 runs in six innings. The Diamondbacks led 1-0 going into the 6th inning when they exploded for four runs including a two-run home run by Corbin Carroll. Alcantara now falls to 1-2 on the season with a 5.84 ERA. Although the Marlins lost, have successfully reached .500 for the season. The Marlins have won all four one run games this season despite losing a record 40 games by one run in 2022.


After their three-game series with the Diamondbacks, the Marlins are trending in the right direction. Despite their low scoring output, they were able to generate enough runs to win the series. The biggest surprise has been the slump Alcantara has been under the past couple of games. If the NL Cy Young winner can get back to form, the Marlins can be a player in the wild card race this year.
