Marlins Game Coverage

Fish Stripes Podcast Episodes

  • Wednesday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville lost, 7-3; Double-A Pensacola won, 8-3; High-A Beloit won, 1-0; Low-A Jupiter won, 4-3. The Sky Carp were two cheapie singles away from a no-hitter. Edgar Sánchez racked up 11 strikeouts for the Hammerheads, shattering his previous career high of five.
  • The Marlins got swept by the Diamondbacks, losing each of the three games by one-run margins. According to Stathead, it’s the first time since 2014 that Miami has lost that many consecutive games under those conditions (Sept. 19-21 vs. Nationals).
  • Pablo López narrowly edged out Jazz Chisholm Jr. to win our April 2022 Marlin of the Month award.
  • On the heels of a multi-homer game, Jon Berti upped his weighted runs created plus to 209. That would rank second-best in the National League if he had enough playing time to qualify.
  • It’s going to be a relatively late night streaming with the Fish (Stripes) as the Marlins begin a four-game series in San Diego. Tune in tonight from 8:30-9:30 p.m. ET on YouTube/Facebook/Twitter for a wide-ranging discussion of Marlins news. Fish Stripes LIVE is presented by Loupe.
