Every Friday during the 2018 Marlins season, we will use this series to feature Fish Stripes original GIFs created that week. A variety of game highlights and silliness for our loyal readers to share or save for posterity.

Keep in mind, MLB Advanced Media has their own “GIF & Embeddable Video Hub” that you can explore by searching for “Marlins” or any individual players. Our Fish Stripes GIFs capture moments that are not included in MLB’s hub.
Putting a little extra swag on it
That Jose Urena changeup had more velocity than usual, but still led to the desired result. He remains winless on the season, but that’s mostly because of some rotten luck.
Give credit where credit is due
With a 18.6 percent career strikeout rate (compared to MLB average of 20.6 during those same seasons), Wei-Yin Chen has always been reliant on the teammates playing behind him. He recognizes that they contributed to his success last Saturday.
Catchers are athletes, too
Bryan Holaday made it to home plate in time after initially sliding around it to avoid a tag, but that came at a price. He had to get the uniform dirty and take a big hit.
Don’t try this at home, kids
Miguel Rojas looks so smooth while making a variety of fielding plays that other MLB shortstops struggle with. It’s no surprise he ranks among the 2018 leaders with 5 Defensive Runs Saved.
Dance like nobody is watching
[Insert Marlins Park attendance joke here]
Miggy congratulates the unlikely hero...
Yadiel Rivera has only three hits this entire season, but his 10th-inning single on Tuesday night made all the difference in a Marlins walk-off win.
