MIAMI -- When Miami Marlins right-hander Anthony DeSclafani looks back on Tuesday's home debut, he'll probably want to take one pitch back. DeSclafani allowed five runs over 5 1/3 innings in Miami's 6-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies at Marlins Park. The 24-year-old gave up six hits, while recording two strikeouts and a walk over 89 pitches (57 strikes). He was lifted with one out in the sixth and a runner at second that would come around to score against reliever Brad Hand. Philadelphia scored two runs in the first, working deep counts against the rookie. Jimmy Rollins led off with a single and Carlos Ruiz flied out to center. DeSclafani (1-1) walked Chase Utley before Ryan Howard drove in Rollins with a double. Marlon Byrd followed with an RBI groundout to short. "Locating and getting back into the count," DeSclafani said of what he needed to do more. "A positive count where I can try to make another quality pitch or go for a strikeout." After ne...

Competitive nature may have played part in Jose Fernandez's season-ending injury

MIAMI -- Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez appears superhuman on the mound, but his mortal flaw -- a relentless competitive nature -- may have been his undoing that led to season-ending Tommy John surgery.

Persistence pays off as Marcell Ozuna busts out of slump in big way for Marlins

Ozuna drove in a career-high five runs to help Miami rout the Philadelphia Phillies 14-5 Wednesday night at Marlins Park. The 23-year-old went 2 for...

The Rundown On Three National League Overachievers

In my last article, I wrote about the disappointing Arizona Diamondbacks. This time around, I thought I’d write a positive piece. What else could be more positive than overachievers? Not much really. To write about one team would be a mistake because multiple teams are winning an unpredicted amount of games. That is why 3 teams, the Miami Marlins, Colorado Rockies, and Milwaukee...
