Heroes and Zeroes: Marlins 13, Padres 4

For the third time in four days, the Marlins plate seven runs in an inning.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Throughout the 2016 regular season, I'm tracking each player involved in each Marlins game. Using the WPA metric (Wins Probability Added), we can order the players from the most positive impact all the way down to most negative. The top three are our "Heroes," and the bottom three rank as our "Zeroes."


Martin Prado (MIA) +25.9%

Prado batted second and played third base for the Fish, and earned a slot in the "Heroes" column for the third time in six games. He singled in the first, moving Ichiro Suzuki to second base with nobody out (+5.8%), then smacked a two-run homer in the second for a 3-1 Miami lead (+19.5%). Later in the inning, he drew a two-out walk (+0.2), then hit a one-out RBI-single in the fifth for an 11-2 Marlins lead (+0.4%).

Justin Bour (MIA) +16.0%

Bour batted fifth and manned the other corner infield position for Miami. He hit a two-out RBI single in the first inning to give the Marlins a 1-0 lead (+11.0%), then hit a one-out single in the second inning to move Christian Yelich to third base (+5.1%). Bour struck out in the fourth (-0.2%), hit a bases loaded RBI-single in the fifth (+0.1%), drew a walk in the seventh (+0.1%), and drew another walk in the ninth (0.0%).

Wil Myers (SD) +11.6%

Myers played first base for the Friars and batted second in the order. In his first time to the plate, he hit a one-out solo home run (+11.6%) to tie the game at one. The Padres were down by seven runs in his next trip to the dish, so nothing he did after the home run had very much impact on the overall outcome of the game. He grounded out in the third (-0.3%), walked in the fifth (+0.3%), and grounded out in the seventh (0.0%).

Derek Norris (SD) -4.1%

Norris caught and batted fifth for San Diego. He struck out to end the first with a runner on second (-3.2%), flew out to open the fourth (-0.8%) and flew out again to open the sixth (-0.1%).

Marcell Ozuna (MIA) -7.0%

Ozuna batted in the cleanup spot for Miami and played center field. He flew out in the first (-4.4%), struck out in the third (-2.4%), struck out in the fourth (-0.3%), then drew a walk in the fifth (0.0%). He hit a single in the seventh (0.0%) to close his night at the plate.

Colin Rea (SD) -52.9%

Rea took the hill and the loss for San Diego. He faced 20 batters over his 2.2 innings pitched, allowing two walks and nine hits for an in-game WHIP of 4.125. He was charged with six earned (and eight total) runs and struck out four Marlins. Rea saw his ERA rise by 63 points to 5.37 and watched his record drop to 3-3 on the season, with a GameScore of just 14.
