A 73-hour rain delay at Sun Life Stadium Monday night merely delayed the inevitable.

Armed with their shiny new (yet really, really old) manager, the Marlins did what they've been doing best the whole month long: they lost. 

Despite a strong start by Anibal Sanchez--who went seven innings and allowed just one run on eight hits and struck out eight--the Marlins dropped thier 11th game in a row, and their series opener with the Angels

The Fish would score just one run off of Jered Weaver, on an RBI sac fly from DeWayne Wise, after Jose Lopez and John Buck singled in the second. 

A pair of singles from Erick Aybar and Torii Hunter tied up the game at one apiece in the sixth, and Steve Cishek gave up the winning run in the eighth. Maicer Izturis and Aybar singled, and Torii Hunter's RBI groundout put the Angels in the lead. 

Not only have the Marlins lost a franchise record-tying 11 games in a row, they just lost their 11th straight one-run game.
