Our Noticias: Ureña struggles again, shift costs Fish, minor-league rosters announced

New, 2 comments

Marlins fall behind early, battle back, but ultimately lose second in a row to Mets, 6-5.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Jose Ureña gave up five runs in the first, and it proved too much in the end, although it could have easily been a win had the Marlins not shifted on this play:

That’s not to say that a bad result on one play means they should no longer employ the strategy. The Athletic notes below that the Marlins have been using the shift way more often this season, and the Sun-Sentinel explains why.

Over the remaining innings, the Fish would crawl slowly crawl back to within one run, but Miguel Rojas would line into a game-ending double play with the winning run on first base.

You can read our recap below, as well as listen to Brian Anderson and Don Mattingly discuss the loss here and here, respectively.
