Marlins' Ruggiano makes great diving catch

It hasn't been a good week for the Miami Marlins, as they finished it up with their 6th-straight loss. But OF Justin Ruggiano had the play of the week with the full extension of a diving catch to rob Brett Lawrie of what could have been 2 RBIs. 2012_6_23_14_35_04 by [...]

Bonifacio plans to be back at the break

Center fielder Emilio Bonifacio has had a tough time watching his teammates struggle through a 4-15 June, but he said he'll be ready to join the Miami Marlins after the All Star break. Bonifacio, on the disabled list with a jammed left thumb, took 25 swings from the right side Friday and will swing from the left side Saturday. If all goes as planned, he will start live hitting...

Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle Signings Plus Homegrown Talent Have Marlins Feeling Good About Clubhouse Chemistry

BOSTON -- No one really knows the worth of a clubhouse full of guys who love being around each other. But plenty of players and coaches will attest that the opposite -- a team where players don't hang out, or have trouble being loose together -- can definitely stall out any chances that talent and good play have at winning some games. The Marlins will be a good test case this...

Summer Solstice Came One Day Too Early for Carlos Zambrano to Celebrate (Video)

The Red Sox celebrated the start of summer in emphatic fashion on Wednesday, taking care of the Marlins with a big win. How can they follow that up against Carlos Zambrano and earn a three-game sweep? We'll have to see. Zambrano is probably glad he didn't have to pitch on the longest day of the year, judging by the way his last few starts have gone. Confused? Don't be...

Fish Fall By Ten

The Miami Marlins fell to 4-13 in June with a ten run loss at the hands of the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday.  Boston won 15-5 to complete their fourth win in five tries against Miami this season.    The Marlins are now only one game ahead of last place in the National League East as the Philadelphia Phillies won their game on Wednesday.

Sox use Long Ball to Sink the Marlins

Sox Go Deep as they prevail over the Marlins Boston MA- Sox used their offense to beat the Miami Marlins last night. Miami jumped up to a quick lead last evening with Logan Morrison belting a first inning HR, but David Ortiz responded with one of his own and tied the game in the 1st. Home runs were of the premium last night as the Sox also got dingers from Cody Ross, Kelly Shoppach...

Friday Morning Cram Session, 6/22

Last night, team owner Jeffrey Loria held a closed door meeting with Marlins players and coaches, presumably to express displeasure at the club's freefall since June 5, which has left them just a game above the Phillies in the race not to be last in the NL East. Now, many would doubt Jeffrey Loria's ability to inspire a room full of grown men to play a game better. ...

Miami’s Hanley Ramirez to the Tigers a possibility?

After an offseason of big spending, the re-tooled Miami Marlins currently sit seven games back in NL East and have six teams ahead of them in the Wild Card chase. This is also considering the Fish finished out Thursday 3 games under the .500 mark at 33-36 with their loss to the Boston Red Sox. But based off the offseason that they had and the amount of money that was spent, it...

Red Sox May Have More Experience Than Marlins When It Comes to Playing in Nasty Heat

When 96-degree heat settled on Fenway Park for the start of Wednesday night's game, you would think the advantage would go to the baseball club from Miami. But the Marlins, who are enjoying their first year in a new stadium that came equipped with a dome, have been able to shirk sweltering temperatures at most points this year. "When we're in Miami, we have a roof -...

Red Sox 15, Marlins 5

BOSTON – Last week in Miami, the Marlins beat the Red Sox in the first of six inter-league games to be played between the teams in 11 days.

David Ortiz, hitting his third home run in as many games (No. 19 on the season), drilled a grand slam during a six-run...

"Youthful Enthusiasm" leads comeback, clinches sweep over the Marlins

So how long will it be for before Sully's puts "Youthful Enthusiasm" on a shirt? They have to be printing them out now right? Three prospects, Will Middlebrooks, Ryan Kalish, and Daniel Nava, put together a great three run rally to give the Sox one of their best victories of the year, a 6-5 win over the Marlins.  It started off when another surprise this season...

Everything Was HOT for the Sox Last Night Verses Marlins

On the hottest day of the season so far at Fenway Park, the ball seemed to be flying out of the park and that added to the Red Sox offense hitting, hitting and hitting their way to a win over the struggling Marlins.  The Sox scored 15 runs, Felix Doubront got his 8th win of the season and the Sox went 2 games over 500.  Oh and every other team in the AL East lost last night too...

Boston Red Sox rally twice to complete sweep over Miami Marlins

The young guns of the Boston Red Sox shined in a 6-5 comeback win over the Miami Marlins.  Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed three first-inning runs thanks to a pair of singles by Greg Dobbs and Omar Infante. It took the Red Sox until the fourth to get on the board off Marlins starter Victor Zambrano. A Will Middlebrooks single and Mike Aviles sacrifice fly would cut the lead to...

Marlins rely on Nolasco against Red Sox

Tune into FOX Sports Florida at 6:30 p.m. to watch the Miami Marlins take on the Boston Red Sox. The Boston Red Sox would be satisfied if the venue is the only thing different for Felix Doubront in this week's start against Miami. They'd be devastated if Dustin Pedroia aggravated the same thumb injury he suffered last month. Facing the sputtering Marlins for the second...

Miami went 8-14 in April, then 21-8 in May, but is just 4-11 so far in June, after dropping...
