MIA 3, STL 7; Marlins lose despite Jazz Chisholm’s mighty home run

New, comments

Several of the Marlins’ top prospects succeeded, but the team as a whole lost for the 5th time this spring.

The Cardinals defeated the Marlins on Sunday, 7-3, as Jazz Chisholm cranked his first homer of the spring.

Pablo López made his 3rd start and struggled early. He allowed 3 runs in the first inning, including a 2-run double by Paul Goldschmidt and an RBI single by Yadier Molina. He bounced back with 2 Ks on Dexter Fowler and Tyler O’Neill. He then went on to pitch 2 more scoreless innings.

Pablo López: 3 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Not much offense for the Marlins. Lewis Brinson got a leadoff double in the 2nd, his team-leading 6th extra-base hit of the spring. Monte Harrison hit an RBI double in the 4th, and Jazz Chisholm hit his home run in the 5th inning. The young shortstop improve to a 1.115 OPS in his 9 games played.

Drew Steckenrider made an appearance and it wasn’t pretty. He immediately gave up a double and it all went down hill from there as he allowed 4 runs and walked 2. Discouraging for somebody who’s trying to put last season’s struggles behind him.

Drew Steckenrider: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 0 K

Robert Dugger continues his strong spring as he has been just about untouchable through 4 appearances and 9 23 total innings.

The Marlins (10-5) will host the Mets (6-9) Monday afternoon at Roger Dean Stadium at 1:05 p.m. ET with Elieser Hernandez on the mound.
