Last night’s game:
José Ureña continued his strong pitching since returning from suspension, throwing 6.1 innings of one-run ball while Lewis Brinson provided the go-ahead knock off of Jacob deGrom to get the Fish out in front of the Mets 2-1 in the fourth inning. Miami would stay there and hang on to win 5-3.
Here’s Brinson doing his post-game interview. Tell me he doesn’t sound a lot like A-Rod.

Don Mattingly was happy to discuss the win:

Fox Sports Florida remembered September 11th during the broadcast.
Elsewhere in Marlins Nation:
Dan Straily felt some discomfort playing catch today. Don Mattingly noted it is possible that Straily may not pitch again this season #Marlins— Joe Frisaro (@JoeFrisaro) September 11, 2018
Ever look up at Marlins Park and wonder how the roof works? Now is your chance to find out!
When deGrom inevitably loses the Cy Young he probably deserves, he might not just blame his team, as many have suggested. He can blame it on the Marlins, though.
Thanks to Monday’s rainout, you get two games today at 4:10 and 7:10 p.m. Trevor Richards (3-8) will try to rebound from the shellacking he received last time out against a rolling Zach Wheeler (10-7). The nightcap will feature Jeff Brigham (0-1), similarly rebounding from a shellacking, facing off against a very shellackable Jason Vargas (5-9).
