Heroes And Zeroes: Rays 4, Marlins 3

Tom Koehler gave the Rays a three run lead and the Marlins never quite caught up in Marlins' Park on Tuesday afternoon.

Alex Colome (TB) +38.6

Colome came on to pitch the eighth and ninth innings for the Rays, earning a save (his 12th of the season). He faced the minimum of six batters, allowing a hit (soon erased by a double play) and making use of two very questionable strikeouts to shut the door in the ninth. He entered with runners on first and second base, then instantly induced JT Realmuto into a double play ball (+23.0%). After that, he let Adeiny Hechavarria single Marcell Ozuna home (-10.0%) to close the Marlins to within a run, but got Miguel Rojas to fly out to end the inning (-6.6%). The ninth would see him get Ichiro! Suzuki out on an infield grounder (+8.5%), then strike out Martin Prado (+6.1%) and Justin Bour (+4.4%). Each of them got caught looking at a strike three which was clearly (on replay) out of the strike zone.

Jake Odorizzi (TB) +34.0%

Odorizzi started on the hill for the Rays and went five full innings, allowing two hits and three walks for a 1.000 in-game WHIP. He struck out seven Marlins and faced just 21 batters in total, getting 68-of-107 pitches over the plate and registering a GameScore of 67. His record now stands at 2-2 with a 3.46 ERA.

Marcell Ozuna (MIA) +19.9%

Ozuna, who along with Justin Bour and Derek Dietrich registered multiple hits in the game, started in center field and batted fifth for the Fish. He grounded out to short to lead off the second inning (-2.5%), then drew a one-out walk in the fourth to give Dietrich two runners on base (+2.8%). He doubled to right in the sixth (+9.1%), scoring just one pitch later on a Dietrich single. Later, he led off the eighth with a double (+10.5%), and scored three batters later on an Adeiny Hechavarria single.

Ichiro! Suzuki (MIA) -17.8%

Suzuki followed up his 10 hits in three games with an 0-for-5 performance. He led off the first with a groundout (-2.2%), flew out for the second out of the third (-1.9%), and for the second out of the fifth (-1.6%). He grounded out to lead off the seventh (-3.7%) and the ninth (-8.5%).

Enny Romero (TB) -24.0%

Romero came on to start the sixth for the Rays, and allowed three quick hits in succession. A Giancarlo Stanton home run (-9.5%), a Marcell Ozuna double (-9.1%), and a Derek Dietrich RBI single (-11.3%). He was lifted for Tyler Sturdevant after getting JT Realmuto to fly out (+5.9%).

JT Realmuto (MIA) -28.2%

Realmuto was kind of a train wreck for the Marlins today, and has surpassed Giancarlo Stanton to the bottom of the "Last 10 Games" standings (see below). Batting seventh and catching for the Marlins, he started out with a swinging strikeout with a runner on first for the second out of the second (-3.1%). He drew a walk to load the bases in the fourth (+3.8%), then went downhill after that. He flew out with a runner on first for the first out of the sixth (-5.9%) and grounded into a double play for the first two outs of the eighth (-23.0%).
