Miami Marlins Daily Minor League Report: May 8

Jacob Turner delivered his best start of the year, while Christian Yelich homered for the third consecutive game.

Jacob Turner, SP: 6.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 SO, 2 HR

Turner looked poised to have another rough outing, giving up a home run in the first inning. He regained his composure and retired fourteen straight batters, before allowing another home run. Aside from those two lapses, he gave up no hits and walked only one batter. Most of the balls in play were grounders or soft fly balls. After posting a 6.56 ERA in April, Turner has a 2.77 ERA in two May starts.
