The Marlins jumped all over Masahiro Tanaka early en route to a 9-1 win (our recap here), while Jarlin Garcia tied an MLB record by extending his no-hit streak to begin a career as a starter to 10 innings pitched. He wasn’t thinking about it while on the mound though.
Bury the lede, why don’t ya?
Earlier in the day, the Marlins’ activation of catcher J.T. Realmuto had the Herald wondering if it would help a floundering offense. He answered:
J.T.'s back. Back again.@JTRealmuto homers in his first game back to give the Marlins a 7-0 lead.#JuntosMiami pic.twitter.com/QaLun4kvrJ— Miami Marlins (@Marlins) April 18, 2018
But he didn’t want to respond to other questions, such as those about his
eventual potential trade. He would speak about the win, however:

Let’s go streaking
Garcia wasn’t the only streaking Marlin.

(Andujar homered.) Maybe don’t lend the other team your bats next time, okay guys?
Also, if everyone is on board with “Jarlin the Marlin” as a thing,
Great W tonight for the fish Jarlin the Marlin impressive again and it feels good having the horse @JTRealmuto behind the plate Pack ur bags boys we are going to Milwaukee ✈️✈️— Miguel Rojas (@MRojasOfficial) April 18, 2018
why is “Starlin the Marlin” not equally a thing?
Final Fish Notes
Here’s what the Marlins could have had from the Giants in a Giancarlo Stanton deal. And in case you forgot, here’s what they got from the Yankees. Tell us what you would have preferred in the comments.
And if a 5-12 start has you down, just remember to trust the process.
