Fish Cap: Miami Marlins 3, New York Mets 0

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Henderson Alvarez threw a shutout at Marlins Park on Tuesday against the Mets.

Henderson Alvarez goes the distance

Henderson Alvarez turned in his second complete game and perhaps his finest start of the year Tuesday in Miami. Walking none and striking out seven, Alvarez was in control the entire game. I loved how Mike Redmond left Alvarez in the game to finish off a much deserved complete game. This rotation continues to exceed any preseason expectations with every coming start and it's awesome to watch.


Stanton powers lineup

Giancarlo Stanton was outstanding on Tuesday. While the majority of the Marlins lineup struggled against Bartolo Colon, Stanton reached base every time he came to the plate. Going 2-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base, Stanton was easily the Marlins most valuable player aside from Alvarez. Stanton continues to put up performances like this despite pitchers pitching around him. Stanton's 12.2% walk rate in 2014 is the highest of his career. I expect Stanton to easily draw more walks this season than his previous high of 74, assuming he stays healthy.
