While the Fish would win tonight’s game, getting hotter than they’ve been in years seemingly, they would unfortunately lose tonight’s National Anthem standoff prior to first pitch. Sandy Alcantara looked battle-ready, but his loss would obviously go on to inspire his teammates to greatness.
Jose Ureña picked up his second win of the season tonight after a shaky start against the Detroit Tigers. Seemingly struggling to locate his fastball, the gamed looked out of hand by the end of the first. However, he would go on to record a quality start after stringing together 6.0 IP with 2 earned runs, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts.
The Marlins were unable to get anything going against Daniel Norris through six innings. That is until Garrett Cooper hit his first home run as a Miami Marlin. Crushing the ball over the left-center wall, Cooper looked relieved.
Alongside Cooper, Brian Anderson fired off his second homer in as many nights. He would actually drive in Cooper for the final score change of the game.
Harold Ramirez hits like he is mad at someone, and it definitely showed tonight. He strung together another multi-hit game with two singles, one in the second and the other in the seventh.
