After a fluke first career hit on Wednesday, J.T. Riddle showed that he can hang with big league pitchers yesterday afternoon as he crushed a walk-off, two run homer to give Miami the four game series win over the Mets. Had the Marlins continued like they started, and made franchise history in the process, Riddle’s late-game heroics would not have been necessary.
Marcell Ozuna had another great game yesterday, collecting three hits and an RBI, while also unleashing his inner “Rally Cat” by scaling the outfield wall to make a remarkable catch in the fifth inning.
It is no secret that the Marlins play in a talented division, but they have to do better this season at beating their closest rivals if they want to have a chance of making playoffs.

Hanley Ramirez was forced out of Boston’s 7-5 win over Tampa Bay with hamstring issues yesterday, but the injury may not keep him out for too long.
