Now that’s how you snag a foul ball. During the sixth inning of the Marlins game against the Pirates Tuesday night, the fan you see above made a terrific play on a foul ball. When you step in front of an infant and make a terrific play on the ball, it qualifies as a top play of the month.
We’ve seen people like this guy snag a ball while holding his baby, but this dude laid it on the line and boxed the baby out to make sure she was out of harm’s way. It’s a dangerous job, but somebody’s gotta do it.
I was contacted by Topps the other day to help them out in a promotion that they are doing revolving around their new iPhone/iPad app, Topps Pennant. After using the app, it is definitely a solid addition to any baseball fan’s arsenal. It gives historical box scores on virtually any game you want.
Anyways, they are running a contest throughout today and tomorrow on Twitter, so...
This is what's happened in Kevin Correia's last four starts: 22 innings, 12 walks, four strikeouts, four home runs. He failed to get out of the fifth inning in one start. He failed to get out of the fourth inning last night, which was one night after Brad Lincoln turned in a solid spot start against the Marlins and two days after Rudy Owens tossed eight strong innings in...
The hard-to-reach outfield fences at the Miami Marlins' new ballpark will remain that way.
Some have argued the fences should be moved in because home runs are too difficult to hit, but Marlins president David Samson says the ballpark plays the way it was designed.
''We have no reason to think about doing anything with the fences,'' Samson said Tuesday. '...
The Pirates’ quest for .500 fell short on Tuesday night, as the Marlins roughed up Kevin Correia and earned a split of the two game set down in Miami.
Correia had an ugly outing, and the questions about his future in the rotation have already started (especially with Brad Lincoln‘s strong outing on Monday). We’ll see what will happen next time his turn comes around, but Correia...

Johnson (1-3) had gone winless in 12 starts since his most recent victory on April 19, 2011. He missed the final 4 months of last season because of right shoulder inflammation.

Thursday’s 7-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves was one of the more lopsided losses of the season thus far for the Miami Marlins. Miami was down from the start and unable to get anything going against Atlanta starter Brandon Beachy.

Ricky Nolasco fell to...
The Thursday Takeaway
Pirates starter James McDonald took home his third win of the season last night, but by the time he left the mound, he had been saddled with three runs in 5 2/3 innings—an outcome that belied his dominance of the Nationals in his team’s 5-3 win.
The 27-year-old righty cruised through his first five innings, pounding the zone and missing plenty of bats...
