The Miami Marlins fought back in Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds and put the ball into Heath Bell’s hands three outs from a series win. Bell’s first chance to close out a game for the Marlins did not come to fruition however as the Reds came away 6-5 winners. The loss moved the Marlins to 1-3 on the young season as they head to Phildelphia for their first games against a division rival in 2012.
Carlos Zambrano had a wild first inning but settled down to give the Marlins six relatively solid innings. After allowing three runs in the first inning, Zambrano would only allow one more. Both walks and two of the four hits compiled by the Reds also came in that wild first inning. Zambrano also struck out six hitters which continued a trend he started in Spring Training in terms of high strikeout numbers. Steve Cishek and Edward Mujica worked the seven and eighth innings with scoreless frames to earn holds. Bell who has closed more games than any other pitcher in baseb...

HOLD THE MAYO
The Marlins pitcher is just the latest in a long line of baseball players to fall victim to a bizarre off-the-field injury.
Heath Bell's chance to impress his new teammates went awry.
Scott Rolen drove in the winning run in the ninth inning with a sharp infield single that third baseman Hanley Ramirez failed to handle, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a come-from-behind 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Jay Bruce started the comeback with his second home run of the game and third of the season...
The Miami Marlins picked up their first win of the 2012 season on Saturday as the offense put on a show in a 8-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. After the first two games saw the Fish tally a combined seven hits and one run — questions began to pop up about the bats. Those questions were answered in this game in a big way with three homeruns and a near cycle.
The Miami Marlins had a disappointing start to their season in more ways than one. For starters, they dropped two out of three to the Reds in Cincinnati. Since the season is extremely young and this is still a team with a lot of promise, that’s not really a huge deal. However, the Marlins are also dealing with a major distraction, as people are calling for Ozzie Guillen’s head...
The game on Sunday between the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins was exciting. The seesaw game went back and forth as the lead changed hands a couple of times. Jay Bruce hit two homers including the game tying shot off of Heath Bell to tie the game in the ninth. The 37 year old Scott Rolen gave the Reds the victory with a well-placed smash down the third base line that Hanley Ramirez...
Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen intends to fly back to Florida to address questions in the wake of the firestorm that resulted after he told Time magazine of his respect for Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Guillen, who apologized for the statement on Saturday, fielded more questions prior to Monday's afternoon road game against the NL East rival Philadelphia Phillies.

After his latest comments about Fidel Castro, Guillen will be flying to Miami on the team's day off to formally apologize for his comments at a press conference...
You know, Joe and I briefly discussed this last week and as days go by I think about it more and more.
In my sports fan life, I have the teams I cheer for passionately. We are all Mets fans, but for me, I also cannot stand the Philadelphia Phillies, NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox (went to school surrounded by annoying Sox fans), and the Atlanta Braves. That is in order too.
Ozzie Guillen said some bad things. It wasn’t the first time and it won’t be the last, but this one had a little more despot flattering than most, so it’s a big deal.
Of course, we at The Dugout believe in freedom of speech, so if Ozzie wants to say that Fidel Castro is better at skateboarding than Tony Hawk it should be his constitutional right as an American Sports Person...

Pitching Probables: Cole Hamels (Season debut) vs. Anibal Sanchez (Season debut)
The Philadelphia Phillies and new-look Miami Marlins are supposed to be the strongest contenders in the National League...
Hamels was lackluster during the home opener (AP)As the wind whipped and wrappers and napkins littered the field at Citizens Bank Park, the offense was once again trashed by the opponent’s starting pitcher. The flagpoles moved at a feverish pace, which is more than you can say about anyone holding a bat on the Phillies side.Omar Infante led the Marlins with a two home-run effort...
Mondays suck can really SUCK, especially when the Phillies drop 2 of 3 to the Pirates, and lose the Home opener to the Miami Marlins!
But Listen, there’s a product out there you make you feel better… “Phillitol.” The official Pill of Phillies Fans.
