Last night’s game:
Miguel Rojas’ three-run home run in the sixth inning gave the Marlins the lead for good, and the Fish would go on to win 9-3.

In the near future:
Marlins are on pace for a record they don’t want.

There remain a couple of interesting promotions this season, however. On Saturday, you can live long and prosper. But the best promotion ever follows the next month.
The Braves are in town to take on the Marlins at 7:10 p.m. Elieser Hernandez (2-6) faces Sean Newcomb (10-6).
