The Marlins take on two familiar foes to begin the month of May.

Last week was an interesting week for the Fish. While most of the attention came from the news off the field, it was a rough one on it. The Marlins went 1-4 to close out the month of April with a 11-12 record. They can thank Justin Bour for the only win on Sunday; he went 4-5 with a homer and six RBIs to help the Marlins to a much needed 10-3 win.

The Marlins kick off the month of May with a home and home four game series with the Tampa Bay Rays. Then they will head back to Citi Field where they will look to continue their success vs the New York Mets.

The season is still young, but it will be halfway over in a flash. It’s time for the Marlins to stack together some wins. Who will the Marlins be facing on the mound this week? I’m glad you asked! Here is Week at a Glance #5!
