Marlins 5, Padres 0
Jose Fernandez was stellar on the mound and Giancarlo Stanton did his part at the plate, as the Marlins blanked the Padres to clinch their second series victory in a row.
The 24-year-old shortstop, off to a red-hot start, still has a lot to prove before he permanently solidifies a spot there. But with veteran second baseman Rafael Furcal still trying to fight his way back from a hamstring injury (he will begin extended spring training on Monday and probably wont be back with the big-league team until the end of the month), Hechavarria has an opportunity to make an impression over the next few weeks.
Marlins 8, Padres 2
Giancarlo Stantons 484-foot homer, the longest in Marlins Park history, got hot-hitting Miami going in the first inning of its rout of San Diego.

Fridays series opener at Marlins Park was a bit more emotional for Yonder Alonso and his family. Shortly before spring training ended last month, Alonso said his 18-year-old cousin, Javier Martinez Alonso, was killed in a motorcycle accident here in Miami.
MARLINS 8, ROCKIES 5
The Marlins are 3-1 and have more runs in a four-game stretch than any time in 2013.
In My Opinion
In Miami sports, its all about the Heats Big 3 and where they will be next season, with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all eligible to opt out of their contracts this summer and be free agents.

While sitting inside the Marlins bullpen Wednesday, A.J. Ramos and Mike Dunn began pumping their fists the moment they saw Giancarlo Stantons long line drive head in their direction. They knew it was a home run the second the ball left his bat.
There were no video replay challenges in either of the Marlins first two games. But manager Mike Redmond considered it on a close play at first base Tuesday and said he would have absolutely challenged another close play at the plate had the call gone the other way.
Rockies 6, Marlins 5
After opening the season with two victories, the Marlins couldnt quite recover from a 6-1 deficit and made three errors in Wednesday nights loss.
Marlins 4, Rockies 3
Nathan Eovaldi pitched six innings and got just enough run support to help the gritty Marlins gut out a rare nail-biter victory Tuesday.
When Dan Marino threw out the ceremonial pitch on Opening Night, there were only 12,000 people inside Marlins Park, according to team president David Samson and another 6,000 when Jose Fernandez threw the first pitch of the game. So when the rest of the largest crowd in stadium history showed up late (Samson said there were about 35,000 butts in the seats among the paid crowd of 37,116), it naturally caused a few headaches.
Jose Fernandez said there was no post-game celebration with his mother and grandma after Mondays win.
