Fish Wrap - Marlins 4, Diamondbacks 10

Truly a game to forget.  And I'm not even going to bother doing a breakdown of the scoring, it would take too long and it would be all about Arizona.  So let's look at the lowlights.

Anibal Sanchez was so far from on, if on had exploded, it would have taken him three days for him to see it.  The problems started in first and would continue on until he left the game in the fifth.  Now, mind you, he didn't get anyone out in the fifth but he start the inning there.  When it was said and done, Anibal only lasted technically four innings giving up 9 hits which turned into 5 earned runs.  Now all of the scoring wasn't his fault since the defense forgot to show up and the two errors while he was on the mound didn't help.  Not to mention Mike Stanton turning a hit into a triple by crashing into the bullpen gate and knocking down Leo Nunez.  Leo was a little gimpy after the incident, but his services would not be required.

So during the fifth inning with runners on first and second, Burke Badenhop entered the game and completely shutdown the D'backs.  At this point Arizona led 6-1.

It got worse, Tim Wood took over in relief but provided none by giving up 4 runs in his one inning on the hill.  And oh, the Marlins made another error to help out the cause.

The only bright spot was when Brett Hayes went deep for his first home run of the season.  Other than that, the game pretty much stunk.

When you play 162 games total, these things happen.  You just forget about them and move on.  On a positive note: it allowed all the commenters on FishStripes to go to bed earlier than planned and that ain't all bad.
