MIAMI -- The way the Marlins have been playing lately, they might be most susceptible to injury while celebrating.
Greg Dobbs singled in the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth Friday night to give Miami a 6-5 win over the New York Mets at Marlins Park. Then he braced himself between first and second base when a swarm of teammates joyfully ran out to mob him.
"You just feel things coming around you like you're in the middle of a hurricane," said Dobbs, who removed his batting helmet just in time so his "head didn't get pounded and I have concussion syndrome."
Celebrations are becoming quite common lately for the Marlins. They've won nine of their past 10 games, with four having come in their final at-bat.
It wasn't long ago some were wondering if the Marlins might sink after expectations had been so high due to an increased payroll and moving into a spanking new stadium. They were 8-14 nearly two weeks ago when they headed out West on a nine-game trip.
