Marlins news

Ichiro Suzuki set the record for most runs scored by a Japanese player on Saturday. Suzuki is stepping in for the injured Christian Yelich, and according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, has impressed owner Jeffrey Loria.

"Aside from his unsurpassed skills, he's brought a new level of professionalism," Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria said. "He's an amazing player."

Miami topped the Nationals on Sunday afternoon and earned their first sweep of the season.

Marlins Park is huge. And Giancarlo Stanton was reminded on a long triple Sunday.

The Marlins are over their rough start. And it was evident over the weekend.

A new manager was an option, but the Marlins just needed consistent pitching.

Adeiny Hechavarria's bat is warming up, and he added another three RBIs yesterday afternoon.

Is there an agreement among Marlins fans with regard to the team's performance?

Miami is riding a winning streak and Dee Gordon is still having success.

Around the League

Not an ideal start for Yasiel Puig, who was placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

St. Louis will rely on pitching depth after placing Adam Wainwright on the DL.

Josh HamiltonTexas. New beginning.

What is the best interleague rivalry?
