The San Diego Padres completed a sweep on Wednesday with a 1-0 win over the Miami Marlins.  In the series, the Marlins scored one total run following on a two game win streak in Philadelphia.    The hard luck loser in this game was Ricky Nolasco who was brilliant but fell to 2-4 on the year due to the inept offense.   Miami is now 10-25 on the season Nolasco struck out nine in seven innings of work with the lone run coming in the sixth frame.   The Padres managed four hits and one walk against the Marlins’ ace who was in total command at times.   Despite the four losses and a losing record, Nolasco has a very respectable 3.72 E.R.A this season.  Mike Dunn worked the eighth with a perfect inning of relief to keep the deficit at one. The Marlins compiled five hits with only one extra-base hit, that off the bat of Miguel Olivo for his second double of the season.   Without many opportunities, the Marlins went 0-3 with runners in scoring position.  All series long, the Marlins struggled...

Marlins battle early season injuries, adversity

Injury and opportunity have appeared often during the early part of the Miami Marlins season.

OF fakes out everyone on home run

This is one of the most bizarre home runs I've ever seen. In the second inning of the Marlins-Padres game on Tuesday night, Padres outfielder Will Venable hits a fly ball to right field off of Marlins starter Alex Sanabia. Miami right fielder Marcell Ozuna settles down to make the catch in normal depth in right field as San Diego's announcers prepare to call the fly out....

Marlins Tarp Upper Section of New Ballpark Due to Low Attendance

Early yesterday, we reported how in just the second year of a new ballpark, the Miami Marlins were on pace to potentially see the largest attendance drop between first and second year for a new facility.

Marlins Forced To Close Off Upper Deck Seats Due To Poor Attendance

  This news shouldn’t come as much of a shock, given the fact owner Jeffrey Loria shipped off a chunk of the team in the off season. The Marlins have the worst attendance in the National League with an average of 18,864 per game–capacity of the park is 37,442, and once the upper deck is closed capacity will be 27,000. The block off will occur for the next 6 games of a 9 game...

Ozzie Guillen wants a job

It looked like a match made in heaven a year ago when Ozzie Guillen took over as the manager for the Miami Marlins. He was a coach with the team when they last won a World Series, and him also being part of the Latino community only made it seem more natural to be the skipper with a suddenly high-priced team moving into a new stadium. But then it all fell apart. The Marlins struggled...
