The Marlins won their seventh game of the season as Pablo López took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning and ultimately threw 6.1 frames with six strikeouts and just one unearned run en route to the 3-1 victory over Cleveland. Jorge Alfaro put the Fish out in front for good, leading off the fifth inning with an opposite-field home run, and Curtis Granderson and Martín Prado each added RBI.

Save number 112 isn’t exactly a landmark in anyone’s career, but things still came full circle for Sergio Romo, who followed Adam Conley and Drew Steckenrider’s scoreless 1.2 innings with one of his own for the save.

Austin Brice pitches a scoreless inning in rehab appearance for Jupiter with 2 K. His stomach virus opened a roster spot for Jarlin García. So either Jarlin goes back down to NOLA in a few days, or they'd need another pitching move to make room for Brice.— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) April 24, 2019

Can someone help me understand this? Have I missed something? If you say fuego instead of fire, then it rhymes, I guess? Or is it a J. Lo reference? Let’s figure it out in the comments.
