Heroes and Zeroes: Marlins 9, Rockies 6

New, comments

Wei-Yin Chen had a bad third inning, but JT Realmuto and Justin Bour went deep to get the Marlins their second consecutive win over the Colorado Rockies.

Steve Mitchell-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."

Heroes

JT Realmuto (MIA) +39.3%

Realmuto batted seventh in the order and caught for Miami. He reached first base on a dropped strike three in the second inning (+3.1%). After that, he hit a no-out double to left in the third (+7.6%), smacked a three-run homer in the fifth (+27.8%), hit an infield single with a runner on base in the sixth (+0.6%), and hit another infield single with a runner on in the eighth (+0.2%). It was Realmuto's 48th career multi-hit game, and his fourth four-hit game.

Justin Bour (MIA) +21.5%

Bour batted sixth and played first base for the Marlins. He struck out swinging with runners on the corners to end the first (-4.1%), hit a two run homer in the third (+16.8%), singled with a runner on first in the fifth (+8.5%), and drew a two-out walk in the sixth (+0.4%).

Christian Yelich (MIA) +17.4%

Yelich batted third out of left field for the Fish. He hit a one-out single in the first with a runner on first (+6.5%), hit a bases-loaded, two-RBI single to center field in the second (+14.8%), flew out to left for the second out of the fourth (-2.1%), ended the fifth on an infield grounder (-0.9%), and flew out to left to end the seventh (-0.8%).

Almost Heroes

Nick Hundley (COL) +12.3%

Ryan Raburn (COL) +11.4%

Giancarlo Stanton (MIA) +11.0%

Carlos Gonzalez (COL) +7.1%

Dustin McGowan (MIA) +6.6%

Trevor Story (COL) +5.8%

Cole Gillespie (MIA) +4.8%

Mike Dunn (MIA) +4.5%

Minimal Impact

Kyle Barraclough (MIA) +4.3%

David Phelps (MIA) +3.9%

Nolan Arenado (COL) +3.4%

AJ Ramos (MIA) +3.0%

Mark Reynolds (COL) +1.8%

Justin Miller (COL) +1.7%

Chad Qualls (COL) +1.5%

Ichiro Suzuki (MIA) +0.7%

Almost Zeroes

Chris Johnson (MIA) +0.1%

Adeiny Hechavarria (MIA) -0.2%

Brandon Barnes (COL) -0.6%

DJ LaMahieu (COL) -1.2%

Cristhian Adames (COL) -1.4%

Derek Dietrich (MIA) -2.3%

Marcell Ozuna (MIA) -3.0%

Charlie Blackmon (COL) -9.0%

Zeroes

Tyler Chatwood (COL) -13.0%

Chatwood started for the Rockies, and faced 11 batters over just 1.2 innings. He earned a GameScore of 34 by getting 28-of-48 pitches over the plate and allowing three earned runs on four hits and three walks. He also threw a wild pitch and struck out two batters. He also went 0-for-1 from the plate.

Wei-Yin Chen (MIA) -62.0%

Chen started for the Marlins, and somehow was "outduelled" by Chatwood's performance. He earned a GameScore of just 18, going 2.1 innings and giving up seven hits and two walks for six earned runs. He struck out one and got 50-of-77 pitches into the strike zone. Chen's ERAwent up by 54 points and is now 5.22, the highest ERA amongst the current five-man rotation.

Eddie Butler (COL) -69.9%

Butler was the losing pitcher of record, allowing six earned runs on nine hits over 3.1 innings. He gave up both home runs, struck out two, and was dialed in just enough to issue zero walks. Of his 58 pitches, he got 40 of them over the plate.

Best and Worst

Best

Marlins: JT Realmuto's three-run homer in the fifth inning to give the Marlins an 8-6 lead (+27.8%).

Worst

Marlins: Wei-Yin Chen grounding into a double play with two runners on and nobody out in the second inning (-9.1%).

Rockies: Mark Reynolds flying out for the first out of the second with two runners on base (-6.0%).
