Our Noticias, 8/6/20: Fish sweep double-header, own the best record in baseball

Plus, a couple of big milestones, and playoff odds are looking up.

MLB: Game Two-Miami Marlins at Baltimore Orioles Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Marlins swept their double-header against the Orioles Wednesday. This is the only recap you need of Game 1:

Brian Anderson’s fourth-inning home run provided all the runs the Marlins would need in a 1-0 victory. Elieser Hernandez pitched 4.1 innings of shutout ball and allowed just three baserunners while Brandon Kintzler locked down his second save of the season.

In Game 2, the Fish got all of their offense out of the way early, scoring two runs in the first off a Jesús Aguilar sac fly and a Brian Anderson single. Five relievers combined to hold the O’s to a single run.

  • In an effort to prevent future outbreaks such as those the Marlins and Cardinals have already dealt with this season, MLB further intensified its COVID protocols Wednesday. Suspension is now a possibility for players who do not abide by stricter regulations, such as wearing a mask at all times when not on the field or in a hotel room.
  • After the flurry of moves over the past week to basically find half a team, the front office wasn’t done. Brandon Liebrandt joined the 60-man player pool Wednesday.
