Fish Wrap - Marlins 3 Padres 2

The game started out pretty well with Hanley Ramirez hitting a first inning home run.  Then Rick VandenHurk took the mound was dealing.  Naturally, true to the form of late, Hanley's home run was the only run the Marlins would score for the first six innings.  But no big deal the Incredible Hurk was shutting out the Padres.

And then came the sixth, with two outs in the inning VandenHurk gave up back-to-back jacks to lose the lead.  Then the unbelievable happened when the Marlins actually had a hit with runners in scoring position.  Now the hit didn't plate the runner, it only loaded the bases, but that is beside the point.  The Marlins were now 1-18 with runners in scoring position dating back to yesterday's game.  Woo Hoo!  Look at the offense go.

With the bases loaded and after ground out by Baker to tie the score, Bonifacio eventually had the good sense to just stand there and the Padres walked him to bring home what would be the winning run.  The funny thing was the Padres announcers who said when Bonifacio squared around to bunt on the first pitch: He must be doing that to shakeup the infield because there is no way he would try to bunt with a force at home with two outs.  Obviously they have never seen Bonifacio in action.

The bullpen brought it home from there.

All in all, just another routine Marlins win.
