Marcell Ozuna gets call to replace injured Stanton

MIAMI Injury again has prompted the Miami Marlins to call up one of their prized prospects. Marcell Ozuna, considered a potential key piece of Miamis future, was summoned to make his major league debut in right field against the New York Mets on Tuesday night. He was in the lineup batting sixth against right-hander Jeremy Hefner. Ozuna replaced Giancarlo Stanton, who was put on...

Comeback Extends Win Streak To Three

The Miami Marlins didn’t lead on Tuesday until the end of the game but that was good enough for the 2-1 victory over the New York Mets which was their third straight win.   Kevin Slowey pitched a masterful eight innings but was a victim once again of low run support.   The third consecutive win gives Miami it’s longest winning streak of the year and improves their record to...

Marlins' Stanton limps out of game

After trading many of their stars after last season, the Miami Marlins' lone remaining major attraction could be sidelined for a while. Giancarlo Stanton left Monday's game against the New York Mets with a strained right hamstring, and the team has yet to announce a timetable for his return. Stanton has started slowly this season, with a .227 batting average and three home...

Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton placed on 15-day DL

Just when it looked like things couldn't get worse for the Miami Marlins, the team's best player had to exit last night's game with an injury.  Giancarlo Stanton suffered a hamstring strain, but the extent was not immediately known last night.  However, the Marlins wasted no time in making a roster move this morning and placing Stanton on the 15-day DL. The injury...

Stanton injured, Marlins rally past Mets in 15 innings

Nick Green hit a game-winning sacrifice fly and Miami rallied for two runs in the 15th inning Monday night to beat the Mets 4-3, handing New York its fifth consecutive loss. But the victory -- only the Marlins' seventh all season -- didn't leave them much in a mood to celebrate. Stanton hobbled...

Series Preview: Miami Marlins

Somehow, the Miami Marlins are playing worse than they were expected to. As it stands right now, the Martlins are 6-19. That’s a .240 winning percentage, which is even worse than the Astros, who are at .280 this season. On offense, the Marlins are dead last in baseball in runs scored, OPS, and home runs, among other categories. They are scoring only about 2.7 runs per game, and...

Marlins rally in ninth to beat Mets

MIAMI (AP) -- Juan Pierre scored standing up on a wild pitch with none out in the ninth, and the Miami Marlins came from behind in the final inning for the second consecutive game to beat the reeling New York Mets 2-1 Tuesday night. The Mets have lost a season-worst six games in a row. They were beaten Monday when Miami scored twice in the 15th inning to win 4-3. New York's...

A Rough Ride For Marlins North

If you're reading this like I want you to, then tie yourself down to whatever chair you're sitting in, because this post is going to be a rough f*cking ride. I understand that this is supposed to be the "punt" year. And I could deal with it when the Mets pull this garbage against superior teams. Or equal teams. Or even teams slightly worse. The Miami Marlins...

Giancarlo Stanton - 15 Day DL - Hamstring

The Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets last night, but they lost Giancarlo Stanton for a while.  Stanton injured himself while running to first base, and we will not know how serious this is until he undergoes an MRI.  Stanton has struggled all season long, but was getting hot right before his injury.  He hit all 3 of his home runs in the previous series against the Cubs and...
