While the Marlins bats went silent over the weekend, there was a victory recorded by a member of the Marlins family.
In the women's finals, top seeds and 2004 Olympic gold medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh came from behind to defeat defending champions Elaine Youngs and Nicole Branagh 21-15, 17-21, 15-13 to win $20,000.
"Finally we did it," said May-Treanor, wife of Marlins catcher Matt Treanor. May-Treanor, of Coral Springs, has a record 90 career wins in Florida alone.
It seems like every year the Miami Open AVP event takes place the Marlins are on the road, which may be by design. But it is a shame that when the tour hits South Florida that Matt and Misty can't hookup.
Oh, congrats Misty.
