Fish Wrap - Marlins 7 Blue Jays 3

The Marlins took the field as underdogs since they were up against the great Doc Halladay (Canadian spelling).  And don't read any snark into that, with the exception of the Canadian spelling thing, Halladay is great.  However, Halladay wouldn't make it past the third inning due to an injury.

In what could be describe as a pitching duel, with the pitchers and the hitters trying to figure out the mystery strike zone, lasted until the eighth, when Cody Ross did his thing -- hit a grand slam.  In his most recent home runs Cody has hit three of the last four for grand slams.  Right now, Cody is tied for the franchise record for grand slams in a single season.

And just to top that off, Ross hit the grand slam while Dan Meyer was the pitcher of record, giving him his first career win has a major leaguer.

So all in all, it was just another routine Marlins win.
