DENVER (AP) -- Tom Koehler tossed seven strong innings, Ed Lucas homered and the Miami Marlins scored for the first time in four games in a 3-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.
Giancarlo Stanton reached base three times and Steve Cishek notched his 18th save for Miami, which snapped a four-game losing streak.
Troy Tulowitzki hit his 17th home run and D.J. LeMahieu had three hits for the Rockies, who are 2-2 in a key 10-game homestand.
The Marlins' scoring drought reached a franchise-record 37 innings after a three-game sweep at Milwaukee over the weekend. They had not scored since Derek Dietrich's two-run homer in the fourth inning of a loss to Washington on July 14.
They failed to score the last six innings of that game before being shut out in three straight games for the second time in franchise history.
The Marlins ended their frustration right away against Colorado. Lucas reached on a one-out single in the first and scored on Stanton's double to r...
BEST OF MAXIM
Christian Yelich received the much-anticipated call to Miami on Monday night, and he'll be bringing a friend.
Following Miami's 3-1 win at Colorado, the Marlins announced they had optioned second baseman Derek Dietrich and center fielder Marcell Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville of the Southern League. The team said it would select outfielders Yelich and Jake Marisnick from...
Tuesday, July 23, 2013 will signal the debut for two top prospects in the Miami Marlins organization, and both happen to be outfielders. One of them is sweet-swinging lefty Christian Yelich, whom the Marlins drafted in the first round of 2010, and the other is Jake Marisnick, one of the main pieces that came back from the big trade this past off-season with the Toronto Blue Jays...
Ryan Braun’s suspension for the rest of the 2013 season was announced Monday evening, and while most major leaguers are going to have reactions about the decision, Logan Morrison of the Miami Marlins may have had the best.
The Marlins, who rank last in the Majors in hits, runs, home runs, RBI and batting percentage, also haven’t scored in 37 innings — the longest streak since...
Drew Pomeranz looks scared to death on the mound for the Rockies.Mentioning Drew Pomeranz rough night is something that has to happen when evaluating the Colorado Rockies ugly loss to the Miami Marlins on Monday night at Coors Field. However, the young lefties struggles are a subplot to the disaster that is the Rockies non-existent offense.On Monday, the Rockies scored one run against...
Pitching wins championships. It’s really that simple. No one denies that you need an offense to put runs on the board. An offense can carry your team far. But when the summer sun fades, games in October come down to the arms you have throwing them. In Denver, there appears to be a lack of concern for a glaring pitching problem. A problem that left uncorrected, will eliminate...
DENVER (AP) -- Rookie Jose Fernandez tossed seven strong innings and Christian Yelich went 3 for 4 with two RBIs in his major league debut, lifting the Miami Marlins to a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.
Making his first start since appearing in the All-Star game, Fernandez (6-5) baffled the Rockies all evening as he pitched out of several jams and limited...
It was an empty weekend for the Miami Marlins' offense.
Caleb Gindl hit his first career home run in the bottom of the 13th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Miami 1-0 on Sunday, shutting out the punchless Marlins for the third consecutive game.
Ed Lucas, one of only three Miami batters to get a hit, complimented his team's pitching despite the offensive slump.
The Miami Marlins don’t have a lot of what most would call “star power”, but what little they have was on display in Tuesday’s 4-2 win over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. It was another superb start for 20-year-old All-Star Jose Fernandez, who went seven solid innings allowing just two runs on five hits [...]
The title is not a misnomer. The Miami Marlins, who are in contention for MLB’s worst team with the Houston Astros, have not scored a run during a MLB-sanctioned game since July 14. That is seven days for all you English majors. Now, that number is a little misleading because the All-Star Game took place last week, but they still had a 3-game set this weekend versus the NL...
The Miami Marlins were swept in the first series following the All-Star break by the Milwaukee Brewers as Miami was shut out three games in a row. The Marlins will now conclude a seven-game road trip with four games against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. The Rockies took two of three from the Chicago [...]
The Brooklyn Cyclones attempted to sweep their first series of the year Monday evening, but after a one-hour and 20-minute rain delay, the Cyclones dropped a 2-0 contest to the Batavia Muckdogs – the Single-A short season affiliate of the Miami Marlins.
For the game, the Cyclones (15-19) only managed two hits – both by left fielder Jared King. King extended his hitting streak...
After hitting the ball hard and coming up empty in recent games, Nolan Arenado finally got one to drop.
Tyler Chatwood pitched six strong innings, Arenado snapped an 0-for-18 skid with a go-ahead single and the Colorado Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Sunday to win the three-game series.
''Lately, I haven't been coming through for my teammates like I wish I could...
The conversation, as expected Monday, centered on drugs in sports. But the batting cage at Coors Field might have been the only place in Colorado where the topic wasn't Broncos star Von Miller.
As the Rockies prepared for Monday's game against the Marlins, news trickled onto the field that Milwaukee's Ryan Braun had accepted a 65-game suspension for his involvement in...
