Miami Marlins links for Monday, March 12th, 2018:
Spring training results
Brian Anderson checked in with a couple of hits and three runs driven in, including a third inning home run to help lead the Marlins to a 7-5 victory over the New York Yankees Sunday. The eleven hit attack also featured three hits from Garrett Cooper and a two-run shot from Cameron Maybin in the fifth.
On the pitching side, Jacob Turner had the start and allowed one earned run on three hits in four innings, with two walks and two strikeouts to his credit, continuing to look solid in his bid for a rotation spot. Kyle Barraclough would follow with a scoreless, three strikeout inning, and last but not least, Sandy Alcantara would pitch the final four frames, giving up a couple of long balls which resulted in a line of two earned run off of three hits, one walk and three punch outs.
The Marlins will sit out of today’s action, but return tomorrow to face the St. Louis Cardinals at 1:05 eastern. Jose Urena is presently slated to face Carlos Martinez.
