Last night’s game
The final two runs came off the bat of Gorkys Hernandez, who was allowed to continue hitting after a horrendous call.
Facing a three run deficit in the ninth, the Fish battled back against reliever Sam Dyson, plating a run before Brian “Mr. Clutch” Anderson took matters into his own hands and knocked in another. J.T. Realmuto, representing the go-ahead run, would single after Anderson, but both would be stranded there after a pitching change and a strikeout of J.B. Shuck to end it.
Jose Urena said he felt something with his arm early in his 39-pitch sixth inning. His velocity stayed up, though. Marlins are monitoring and will see how he feels over next couple of days.— clarkspencer (@clarkspencer) June 21, 2018
Ureña spoke about his performance after the game, as well as what he felt in his arm during the big inning. He also answered questions about his base-running blunder that may have killed a rally.
Mattingly also gave his reaction:

OMG VOTE ALREADY, PEOPLE!!!
Like, more than once. As a Marlins fan, you know that the team has several strong candidates for the All-Star game in July. We at Fish Stripes have been big on Brian Anderson, of course.
I think it would truly be a crime, however, if J.T. Realmuto doesn’t make it. I am not alone. Baseball Reference, aka Math, aka Science, agrees. The Herald, too, has joined our merry throng. And MLB.com just came out and said it:
I’ll make it easy for you: this is the ballot.
Down on the farm
After retiring the first 14 batters he faced, #Marlins No. 20 prospect Jordan Yamamoto (@jyamaz21) went on to strike out a career-best 13 for @GoHammerheads. https://t.co/eZXdh7Ykkw pic.twitter.com/0UZceEH3KR— Minor League Baseball (@MiLB) June 21, 2018
(An aside: Are you allowed to pitch these days if you don’t have a tattoo sleeve on your arm? Asking for a friend.)
Speaking of tat sleeves…
It’ll soon be
Pitbull bobblehead “305” Day at Marlins Park! Dale!
The Marlins are off today, but will take on the Rockies in Denver this weekend. Here’s how the probable starters line up.
It should be a high scoring affair!
