When Fredi Gonzalez made the decision to pitch to Mike Stanton instead of Ozzie Martinez in the bottom of the ninth, it seemed as though the Marlins' losing streak was about to come to an end. Mike Stanton delivered a two-run single to tie up the game, and it was on to extra innings.
The Marlins wouldn't regain the lead, however, and dropped their seventh in a row, and fourth straight series as they fell to the Brave 3-2 at Sun Life Stadium.
The Marlins have now lost seven in a row, and apparently Jeff Loria thinks it's hitting coach John Mallee's fault. He got canned after the game.
