Fish Wrap - Marlins 4, Rays 1

On Father's Day the Marlins wrapped up their second installment of the 2010 Citrus Series with ace Josh Johnson on the hill against David Price.

Hanley Ramirez had the afternoon off, nursing his tight hammy, so Barden made the start at short, and Wes Helms filled in for Cantu at second.

The Fish got an early one-run lead in the bottom of the second when Cody Ross walked, advanced to third base on a single from Wes Helms, and scored on an RBI fielder's choice by Mike Stanton.

The Rays tied the game in the top of the fourth when JJ gave up a solo home run to Carl Crawford, but in the bottom of the fifth, the Marlins took the lead once again when Gaby Sanchez tripled to drive in Chris Coghlan, who had reached on an error.

With Cody Ross on second in the bottom of the sixth, Uncle Wes hit a home run to put the Marlins up 4-1, and that was the end of the scoring in the game.

Josh went on to pitch eight innings, allowing only the fourth inning run on six hits, while striking out nine, and Leo Nunez saved it with a scoreless ninth.

The Marlins have once again taken two out of three against Tampa Bay. Which is almost enough to make me forget the ringing that is still in my ears after last night's game...
