Fish Wrap - Marlins 2 Nationals 7

New, comments

The Marlins finished up the homestand against the Nationals by losing.  Something they really didn't need to do.

Chris Volstad only made it through three innings giving up five runs and walking five.  Half of his pitches were called balls.  Now, I am no expert but that doesn't seem to me to be a very good outing.  After Volstad left the game BGA took over and threw more strikes than balls by a whopping total of one.  Naturally he gave up another run. (Long man my butt.)  And then we get into the "I don't want to talk about it" phase.  It got so bad in the pitching department that the Marlins had to use Calero and the Hopper.

Of course come the sixth inning the rains came and causing over a two-hour delay and if that wasn't enough there was another delay in the ninth of almost an hour when the umpires finally called the game and put everyone out of their misery.

It was truly a game to forget.  But here is the problem, the Marlins can't afford many more, if any, games to forget and still keep their playoff chances alive.
