"The first two innings, that was great to see," Manager Dan Jennings said of the first two frames during which the Marlins scored a combined eight runs. "I thought Brad [Hand] did a great job, gave us six innings which in itself is huge. Just some tremendous at-bats up and down the lineup all game."
-- Adeiny Hechavarria extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a single in the first inning. He is batting .380 and has driven six runs over that span.
-- Brad Hand has not allowed a home run at Marlins Park since August 15 of last season.
-- Marcell Ozuna only hit four home runs in the first half but has hit a pair since being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on August 15.
-- Dee Gordon reached base safely three out of five times on Thursday night and recorded his 43rd multi-hit game of the season.
