Our Noticias: Marlins flip the M, López shuts down Tribe, Prado reaches milestone

Plus, we track the team’s pursuit of the first overall pick in 2020.

MLB: Miami Marlins at Cleveland Indians David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Prado, whose hot bat has once again earned him a starting gig, reached a personal milestone with his 1,500th hit in the big leagues. He spoke about it with Fox Sports after the game.

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.
