Miami Marlins morning news: Fish shutout Mets, take series

Adam Conley was terrific and the long ball was working for Miami as they beat New York by six runs for the second-straight night. Plus links on J.T. Realmuto and Christian Yelich.

Marlins News

The Marlins dented New York's playoff hopes by winning the series last night behind seven impressive innings from rookie left-hander Adam Conley.

The Marlins had evened the series the night before with a barrage of hits, including a double from Tom Koehler, the first of his career.

J.T. Realmuto is solidifying his case to be the Opening Day 2016 catcher as he is having a very productive September, batting way over .300.

Dan Jennings has said that he is "enjoying" being the Marlins' manager. However, many expect him to return to the front office after the season comes to an end.

Christian Yelich has a twin brother? Maybe he was on the field for the first half of the season.

Around the League

Bryce Harper has become the first National League player to hit 40 home runs this season. It is the seventh time in history that a player 22 years old or younger has hit that many homers.

The Royals continue to stumble towards the playoffs while the Indians keep surging.

It has all come full-circle for Barry Zito as he has been recalled by the Athletics - the team that drafted him in 1999.

Marlins great Josh Johnson looks set for his third Tommy John surgery as he strives for a comeback from the last procedure.
