Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports The latest Miami Marlins coverage coming off win No. 64 of the season. Marlins Game Highlights New Fish Stripes Podcast Jazz Chisholm Jr. became the fifth-youngest player ever to have a multi-home run game at Marlins/LoanDepot Park—only Ronald Acuña Jr., Bryce Harper, Jason Heyward and Giancarlo Stanton were younger at the time of theirs. Jesús Sánchez made a bare-handed catch in medium-deep right field to save himself from an embarrassing misplay. Miguel Rojas entered as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the seventh inning....

Marliniversary: Conine, White hit back-to-back jacks for walk-off win over Astros

Marliniversary: Conine, White hit back-to-back jacks for walk-off win over Astros

On this day in 1996, the Marlins accomplished a franchise first. For the Florida Marlins, the 1996 season was something of a breakthrough campaign. The season didn’t end in postseason or a winning record, but the Marlins did win 80 games for the first time. The promising campaign allowed the Florida front office to add pieces to become a contender in 1997. On this day 25 years ago, the Marlins accomplished a franchise first, collecting a walk-off win on back-to-back home runs in a 2-1 victory over the Houston Astros. Through eight innings at Joe Robbie Stadium on...

BABIP De La Cruz

BABIP De La Cruz

Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports Unpacking Bryan De La Cruz’s near-historic success on balls in play. When you need a hit, there’s nobody you’d rather have at the plate right now than Bryan De La Cruz. On Sunday, the Marlins needed a hit. They were on the precipice of suffering another frustrating one-run loss in a season full of them, of becoming the first MLB team since 2020 to get swept in a series by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Down 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth, speedy Magneuris Sierra had made his way to third base, but with two outs, it would take a teammate to...

Marliniversary: Fernández tosses gem in final MLB game

Marliniversary: Fernández tosses gem in final MLB game

Photo by Rob Foldy/ Fernández wound up going eight innings, allowing just three hits and no walks while striking out 12. José Fernández was a special talent. His former teammates remembered him as a special person. Fernández died in a boating accident in September 2016 at the age of 24. On this day five years ago, Fernández pitched an absolute gem in what would be the final appearance of his career in a 1-0 win over the Washington Nationals. The Miami Marlins were looking to clinch the three-game series against Washington as the teams arrived at Marlins Park on...

El poder y los ajustes podrían hacer de Jesús Sánchez un bateador bastante temible

El poder y los ajustes podrían hacer de Jesús Sánchez un bateador bastante temible

Photo by Sam Navarro/ Jesús Sánchez va en el camino correcto para convertirse en un bateador explosivo con los Marlins. Tomando en cuenta su paso por las Ligas Menores, Jesús Sánchez nunca ha sido un bateador que conecte demasiados jonrones. Aunque es un toletero de extrabases en general, su tope de cuadrangulares antes de llegar a Grandes Ligas fue de apenas 15 vuelacercas, impuesto en 2017 en Clase A de los Rays de Tampa Bay. Pero este año todo ha sido diferente para él en las Mayores con los Marlins de Miami. Excluyendo el hecho de que acumula 10 bombazos en 37...

MIA 6, PIT 5: LeWin

MIA 6, PIT 5: LeWin

Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports Lewin Díaz sends Miami home winners in series finale. After what could best be described as a recent barrage of strikeouts from Marlins’ ace Sandy Alcantara - 50 over his last 5 starts (37 IP) - the right-hander got it done another way in his 31st start of the season. Pitching more to contact in Sunday’s 6-5 series finale win over the Pirates, Alcantara went 6+ innings, allowing 2 runs (1 earned), walking 1, and striking out 4. The right-hander has now pitched 6 or more innings in 25 of his 31 starts and has averaged 6.28 IP per start...

Where’s the rest of the 2018 Marlins MLB Draft class?

Where’s the rest of the 2018 Marlins MLB Draft class?

Bally Sports Florida Fourth-rounder Nick Fortes impressed in his debut on Saturday. Which other members of his draft class could eventually reach the bigs? More so than the typical MLB team, the Marlins are heavily reliant on trade acquisitions and players picked up off the scrap heap (waiver claims and minor league free agents). Critical building blocks like Trevor Rogers and Brian Anderson have spent their full professional lives with the Fish, but the previous front office was responsible for drafting them (in 2017 and 2014, respectively). The Marlins’ objective to...

Marliniversary: Infante does in former team with walk-off homer

Marliniversary: Infante does in former team with walk-off homer

Photo by Ronald C. Modra/ Infante’s solo shot lifted the Marlins to a 6-5 victory over the Braves. Infielder Omar Infante enjoyed a solid 15-year career in Major League Baseball. Infante was regarded as a line-drive hitter and hit .271 for his career. Over the course of 15 seasons, Infante lifted 82 home runs, but only one walk-off. That came as a member of the Florida Marlins on this day 10 years and against his former team. Infante had been an All-Star for the Atlanta Braves in 2010, but was traded to the Marlins in an offseason deal that send Florida’s all-time...

PIT 6, MIA 3; Marlins fall to Pittsburgh again

Photo by Eric Espada/ Despite impressive moments from several Marlins rookies, the Pirates led Saturday’s game from wire to wire. With Edward Cabrera on the mound Saturday night making his 5th big league start, the Miami Marlins, who were trying to tie the series at one game apiece, fell due to both a feeble offense, and defensive blunders. Cabrera surrendered a loud double to Ke’Bryan Hayes on the first pitch of the game, but recovered to turn it into quite possibly his best big league inning. After striking out Kevin Newman, a passed ball by rookie Nick Fortes and...
