The Marlins got shutout by lefty Wade Miley in their second game of the day. Miley pitched eight shutout innings, then handed the ball to J.J. Putz to seal the deal. The Marlins only had six total baserunners in this game.
Wade Miley was really good tonight. Miley, who is probably the favorite for N.L. Rookie of the Year, had pretty awesome control of his two-seam fastball tonight. The ball went almost exactly where the catcher wanted it pretty much every pitch.
Wade Leblanc actually was okay for Miami today. He pitched seven innings, and only allowed two earned runs. However, he got no run support from his offense to back him up.
Next game for Miami is Friday against the Dodgers. Nate Eovaldi will face Chad Billingsley and his other old teammates.
