Marlins News

Despite a seven-run rally and seventeen hits on the night, including three from Ichiro Suzuki, the Marlins lost game one of the series to the Braves.

The three hits not only resulted in Ichiro recording his 899th career multi-hit game, but he also passed Lou Brock for 25th on the all-time hits list.

Marcell Ozuna had to leave the game as a precaution after getting hit by a pitch on the outside of his knee in the fourth inning.

The Marlins were looking to build on the confidence they had gained from a strong weekend against the Dodgers, but it was not to be last night in Atlanta.

All is not lost with one loss, though, as Miami still has a big week ahead.
