Josh Johnson's night was something to behold. He pitched a complete game, striking out 12 (a new personal best), gave up only 3 hits (a new personal best), and drove in three runs (tying his personal best). But JJ wasn't the only starting pitcher to set personal game records in the contest; Mat Latos chipped in too. Latos' 2.2 IP was the quickest exit of his career, and for the first time ever he walked in a run with the bases loaded. So both starters now have new personal marks to aim for in the future. I'm just guessing, but I think JJ is a little happier about his accomplishments than Latos. Could be wrong about that though.
It was an interesting night on the offensive side of things for the Marlins. The Fish racked up 12 hits and matched that with 12 strikeouts. You don't do that every day of the week. Hanley Ramirez led off with a homer for the second time this season, and when Cody Ross drove in John Baker with a double in the second, the game was over. After that, it was stats padding time with Dan Uggla, Gaby Sanchez and Cody Ross doing it the best.
All in all, it was nice to get a blowout win for a change. The Marlins needed one.
