The Miami Marlins lost Saturday’s game to the Boston Red Sox 4-1 with the lone highlight being an Austin Kearns homerun.    The loss moved the Marlins to 0-7-2 in their last nine games with their last win coming back on March 15th.    The Marlins have a week left in Jupiter before heading to Marlins Park for the final two games of the Grapefruit League. Wade LeBlanc, the Marlins’ best pitcher this Spring started the game and lasted five innings in which he allowed two earned runs on five hits.   LeBlanc also struck out four and walked none.   The veteran who was acquired from the San Diego Padres in the off-season is a virtual lock to make the team and should serve as the long man in the bullpen.   J.D.

Kearns who is having one of the better Springs in all...
