In winning three of four including Thursday's 5-3 victory the Marlins became the first opposing team to allow fewer than three earned runs in each game of a four-game set at Coors Field. In the 36th and final inning of their four-game set at Coors Field Thursday the Marlins' offense finally ignited. A four-run inning capped by Donovan Solano's two-run homer propelled them to a series-clinching 5-3 win over the Rockies. The Marlins recouped from a road-trip opening three-game sweep in Milwaukee during which they failed to score a run. As awe-inspiring as Thursday's three extra-base hit ninth was the story of the series was pitching. The Marlins became the first team ever to hold the Rockies to two earned runs or fewer in each game of a four-game set at Coors Field. Three other franchises – San Diego Arizona and Washington/Montreal – have allowed two earned or fewer in four consecutive games here as well but none in the same series. "It's been phenomenal" manager Mike Redmond said of his club's pitching. "Give our guys credit. Our starters did a great job got deep into games. Our bullpen continues to put up zeros and keep us in ballgames and [Steve] Cishek has done a great job locking down these wins for us." Rain wind thunder and the ensuing 93-minute delay interrupted a compelling pitchers' duel between Nathan Eovaldi and Juan Nicasio. Eovaldi over his six scoreless innings gave up three singles walked two and struck out four. Nicasio had just completed his seventh scoreless inning when play was suspended.
