Last 10 Games
MiamiSkye won the attendance with a guess of 39,145 for two points. He called a Marlins win, the starters combining for 12+IP, and got the max three points on H&Z, calling Haren and Gordon Heroes and Hudson a Zero. That's seven points all told. And this despite the most random prop bet I've ever seen:
at least 2/3 of the numbers 1,4, and 5 are in the attendance
sternma called the winner, Stanton and Gordon Heroes and a QS for Haren. Four points.
Jigokusabre called the Marlins winners for a point, said Haren gives up 0 HR for one and a half, said the Marlins OF would collect at least three RBI (they had four) for a point, and called Stanton a Hero for 4.5 points.
Al-Kendall guessed Haren would be a Hero for one point.
Thomas Bennett called the winner, and got a fat 2.5-point prop bet by saying both pitchers would get a hit.
Gatorfan4life called the winner.
Marlon D called the winner, said Marlins 3-4-5 hitters would get at least five combined hits for 1.5 points, and called Hudson a Zero.
gustavopim called the Marlins win, got a nice 1.5 prop bet for saying "someone" gets his first home run of the year (would have been two if he had called Ozuna), called Haren for a QS, Stanton for a Hero, and Aoki + Hudson as Zeroes. 6.5 nice points.
Continuing tonight, the Marlins have three more shots to take down the defending World Champions. Leave your picks here or in the GameThread.
