Fish Wrap - Marlins 4 Cardinals 3


The Marlins continued with their theme of firsts to win another game.  But before we get to those, let's look at the pitching.

Tonight's game featured two aces and early on the game was going as expected with the starters more or less controlling the game.  Then after some, uh, "creative" defense on both sides the game was tied 3-3 after five innings.  By the seventh inning it was battle of the bullpens, on the Marlins side, Meyer was great, Lindstrom was...you know... Lindstrom...meaning he was scary but it somehow worked out.

Now to the firsts.  Emilio Bonifacio was the hitting star by driving in 3 RBI, a single game career high, going 2 for 3 with a walk.  No really, I'm not making this up.

And the game was won on Jeremy Hermida's first walk-off hit, which happened to be a home run in the bottom of the ninth.

They say one of the great things about baseball is that every night you get to see something that you have never seen before.  Well, okay, but something this improbable?

No matter, I'm liking the Marlins theme for the week.
