In their first game against a major league opponent at Marlins Park, the Miami Marlins fell 10-8 to the New York Yankees on Sunday.     It was the first of two exhibition games against the Yankees with game two coming on Monday night.   The exhibition games were scheduled as a way to work out some kinks in the new ballpark while also showcasing the venue against one of the most legendary sports franchises. Ricky Nolasco started the memorable game and pitched well until the fifth inning when things fell apart.    Nolasco’s first pitch which was captured by many cameras was lined into right field by Derek Jeter.   The Yankees would go on to score one run in that first inning.   When the fifth rolled around, Nolasco allowed five more runs.  In all, the veteran allowed seven earned runs on eight hits in five and two third innings on the mound.    Nolasco’s next start will come on Saturday in Cincinnati which will be the third game of the regular season.    Randy Choate, Mike Dunn, Gary Glo
