The Marlins jumped out to an 8-0 lead on Nate Pearson and the sloppy-fielding Blue Jays after two and a half innings, but Jordan Yamamoto gave up two homers, and the bullpen gave up five more over the next six frames, allowing Toronto to send it into extras. Despite having blown a huge lead, the offense kept battling and scored three runs in the 10th to win it. Magneuris Sierra had the key hit, a two-RBI single, in the final inning. Miami became the first NL team not to lose after giving up seven round-trippers in a game, and just the fourth in MLB. The odds of the team making the playoffs jumped 6.4 points since Tuesday and sit at 24.9 percent.

Jesús Aguilar kept hitting, going 3-for-6 with four RBI, the last of which extended the lead to three in the 10th inning. The 30-year-old is now slashing .311/.353/.975 with four home runs in 45 at-bats. Just yesterday, Fish Stripes asked whether he was Fishy or for Real? Although, after that performance, the answer is probably obvious to you by now.

Next Up:

The Marlins get Thursday off to travel home for the first time in over three weeks. They’ll take on the Braves at Marlins Park Friday at 7:10 PM. Pablo López (1-1) will be opposed by Kyle Wright (0-2).

The Braves, already missing Ozzie Albies, will also be without Ronald Acuña all weekend.

And I leave you with this:
