Henderson Alvarez was left shaking his head after the Marlins erupted for a 13-5 win over the Rockies on Friday. Coors Field has a way of doing that to pitchers, and Alvarez was no exception.
Marlins 13, Rockies 5
Henderson Alvarez received his first taste of Coors Field. He’s probably not hankering for a second helping anytime soon.
Coors Field causes Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones to salivate, and who can blame them?
No team in the past 21 years has played more one-run games than the Marlins, and this season they are leading the majors in victories in those games.
David J. Neal: The bottom line: Miami Marlins are building a contender as long as Stanton is re-signed
Dan Jennings and Mike Hill must perform the Herculean task of keeping Giancarlo Stantons brawny bat from taking the road most traveled by Marlins prospects who develop into stars. They gained the salary space to do so on those two seemingly dark days in 2012 when the Marlins deconstructed the team built to play in the newly constructed Marlins Park.
Rangers 5, Marlins 4
For the second start in a row and seventh time in his past 10 appearances, the Miami Marlins lost with Nathan Eovaldi on the mound, dropping a 5-4 decision Wednesday afternoon to the last-place Texas Rangers at Marlins Park.
The Marlins are hitting the road for an important nine-game trip beginning Friday night in Colorado, and Giancarlo Stanton isnt the only hot bat theyre taking with them. His outfield mates have been on fire of late, too.
Marlins 4, Rangers 3 (10)
Giancarlo Stanton’s two-out single in the 10th inning lifted the Marlins to their major-league high 11th walk-off win of the season.
When Nick Martinez closed his eyes and pictured himself playing in the big leagues as a little kid, he always envisioned himself playing shortstop or second base for the Marlins.
Newly acquired pitcher Jarred Cosart isn’t afraid to speak his mind, but the Marlins want his arm to do all the talking.
In My Opinion
Giancarlo Stanton deserves the NL MVP for carying the Marlins on his shoulders.
Marlins 10, Diamondbacks 3
Giancarlo Stanton helped the Marlins (62-62) stay firmly in the playoff hunt and tie their win total from all of last year.
marlins 2, diamondbacks 1
Henderson Alvarez allowed one run in seven strong innings Saturday night in his first start since coming off the disabled list.
Mike Dunn was so exhausted from heavy usage at one point in July that he stopped working out in the weight room to conserve what little energy he had left. And A.J. Ramos said he reached a point of having to change the arm angle on his delivery simply to “find a position where my arm wasn’t hurting.”
After suffering through last year’s dismal, 100-loss season, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria said he is happy with the team’s improvement.
Diamondbacks 3, Marlins 2
The Marlins couldn’t muster much offense against Trevor Cahill and the Arizona bullpen, as the Diamondbacks’ early barrage Friday was too much to overcome.
As reporters gathered around Mike Dunn on Friday to talk to the pitcher about breaking the Marlins’ record for victories by a reliever with 10, Jeff Baker called out across the clubhouse, “Did he vulture another one?”
Marlins 5, Diamondbacks 4 (10)
Marcell Ozuna put his August blues behind him for one night, ripping a walk-off RBI double in the 10th inning to complete the Marlins’ comeback.
Dan Jennings can’t wait to get back on the mound.
Cardinals 5, Marlins 2
Justin Masterson shut out the Marlins for seven innings, denying Miami a sweep of St. Louis and a chance to gain more ground in the NL wild-card chase.
