Sunday’s game ended in a 3-2 loss for the Miami Marlins at the hands of the San Francisco Giants meaning the teams split the four game series.    In May, the Marlins remain undefeated in series with seven wins, no losses and three ties.    The loss means Miami must wait another day to try and tie the franchise record for wins in a month which is nineteen.

Ricky Nolasco pitched well but was out-dueled by Matt Cain to fall to 5-3 on the season.    Nolasco allowed three runs on five hits in his seven innings on the mound.   The scoring got started early on a solo home run in the first as the Marlins trailed all game.    Randy Choate retired the only two batters he faced in the eighth inning before being replaced by Ryan Webb.   For the young right-hander, it was a shaky inning and a third of work but he worked through it in scoreless fashion to keep the game where it was.

The two runs scored by the Marlins came via the bats of Jose Reyes and Chris Coghlan who each had a run batted in.     Coghlan was 2-4 as his bat continues to heat up with regular playing time.    For John Buck, his slump reached 25 at-bats without a hit after he was robbed of a base-hit in the first inning by Angel Pagan.   Brett Hayes is expected to see increased playing time due to Buck’s slump and his overall offensive issues for most of the season.

On Monday, the Marlins will take on the Washington Nationals in a Memorial Day matchup.   The scheduled starters are Carlos Zambrano and Jordan Zimmermann.
