Marlins are on the move

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The Marlins got their first win of the year Thursday night.  After trailing 2-0 going into the eighth inning, the Marlins finally got a couple runs in when J.T. Realmuto hit a two run homer to center field bringing in Christian Yelich.  The Nationals answered right back in the bottom of the eighth when Ryan Zimmerman hit a homerun single to center field. The Marlins knew they weren’t out of it yet though, in the top of the ninth Tyler Moore hit a single to center, to have Adeiny Hechavarria score the game tying run.  The game would eventually go to extra innings, but it didn’t take long for the Marlin`s to get on the board, when Justin Bour hit a double deep into left, to have Realmuto score again in the top of the tenth. The Marlins would not let up any runs in the bottom of the tenth and would go on to win their first game of the year.

Tom Koehler had a pretty good first game of the year, letting up only one run through five innings, with four strike outs. The offense of the Marlins had a great game as well having 14 hits, but only being able to score on four of them. Realmuto was the star for the offense in this one, batting .583 with three RBI`s.  The entire Marlins team came together to get their first big pivotal win of the year.

JUPITER, Fla.—The catching combination of Eric Fryer and Yadier Molina drove in four runs in the second inning to win 7-4, avenging Saturday’s loss to the Miami Marlins.

Coming together for the first win of 2017, the duo pushed the Cardinals to victory with their bats. Fryer, who re-signed with the Cardinals as a non-roster player for this year due to a waiver claim to Pittsburgh last year, drove in two runs with a single in the second inning. He also had a triple and scored a run. Molina, serving as a designated hitter, drove in two more runs in the second with a two-run double.

Mike Mayers was also impressive as the starting pitcher, retiring all six Marlins he faced.

The Cardinals return to play Monday, Feb. 27, against the Boston Red Sox at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida.
