The Phils overcomes an early Marlins’ lead to end up beating the fish, 9-5.
The Marlins took a quick 2-0 lead in the first as, with the bases loaded, via singles by Bryan Petersen and Donovan Solano, with Petersen stopping at second base, and a walk to Jose Reyes, and with nobody out, Giancarlo Stanton hits a two-run single, knocking in Petersen and Solano, while sending Reyes up to second base. Three batters later, the Marlins added to their lead as, with runners still on first and second, and now with two men out, Rob Brantly hits an RBI single, knocking in Reyes, while sending Stanton over to third base. The Phils got two of the runs back in the second as, with runners on the corners, and with two men out, Pete Orr hits a two-run double, knocking in Dom Brown, who was safe at first on a force out, 3-6, as Carlos Ruiz, who had started the inning off with a single, is wiped out at second base for the inning’s first out, and then moved up to third base on Nate Schierholtz’s single, ...

Your browser does not support iframes. The Miami Marlins have been a huge disappointment this season. They entered 2012 with a new lease on life that included a name change, a new stadium, a new look, and a plethora of new players to help revive the baseball culture in the Miami area. They forgot one important thing though, winning. Unlike the team he roots for, this Marlins fan...
MIAMI Its the ultimate second chance.
Adam Greenberg stepped to the plate at Sun Life Stadium on July 9, 2005, for his first major-league at-bat. Appearing as a pinch-hitter for the Chicago Cubs, Greenberg was hit in the head by then Marlins reliever Valerio de los Santos with the first pitch and went down in a heap.
Though my head was split open, I never truly lost consciousness...
Pitcher Mark Buehrle and right fielder Giancarlo Stanton posted impressive milestones Friday night in Miami's 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Buehrle helped Miami snap a seven-game losing streak by tossed eight strong innings, which clinched a 12th straight season of at least 200 innings. Buehrle is the only active pitcher in baseball with 12 consecutive years of...
The Phils are finally eliminated as they lose to the Marlins in walk-off fashion, 2-1.

Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton didn't miss a beat in his first series back since the middle of the month. Stanton has home runs in two of his last three games after missing the previous nine games because of a strained muscle in his left side. Stanton, who homered off Cliff Lee on Friday and Roy Halladay on Saturday, has 36 home runs, the second-highest total...
“It’s just magical… I couldn’t be more excited” says Adam Greenberg about his second chance at the big leagues.
Greenberg described himself as “humbled” and “thrilled” when asked how he felt about returning to the major leagues after seven seasons. Since hes grown up playing professional baseball is “all I’ve ever wanted to do” Greenberg told ESPN’s Baseball...
MIAMI -- The Miami Marlins have struggled hitting with runners in scoring position all season. For most of Monday night's game against the New York Mets, those issues continued. Miami was 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position before Rob Brantly delivered a tie-breaking RBI double in the eighth inning that helped the Marlins to a 3-2 victory over the Mets. Ramon Ramirez...
Edwin Rodriguez, Vic Darchinyan and Antonin Decarie were the winners in tonight's prospect-themed HBO Boxing After Dark triple-header from Connecticut. Though not typical HBO fare, the three fights proved interesting, if not evenly matched.(Vic Darchinyan, left, laying into Luis Del Valle; photo credit: Ed Mullholand, HBO)
In the main event, Edwin Rodriguez (22-0) beat up on...
Undefeated Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriguez (22-0, 15 KOs) made a major statement tonight in the main event on HBO Boxing After Dark, punishing a tough, previously unbeaten Jason "Monstruo" Escalera (13-1-1, 12 KOs) until referee Steve Smoger called off the fight at the start of the eighth round, from the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket...
In this week's three punch combo I will begin by once again taking a critical look at Deontay Wilder's career development, after the news of his turning down a bout with Bryant Jennings. Next, we will look at how the latter stages of Vic Darchinyan's career have in a way mirrored that of the late stages of Bernard Hopkins' career. And finally, we'll examine...
The Mets and Marlins open up in Miami for the final series of the season tonight as Jeurys Familia gets the start tonight against Josh Johnson. Familia has pitched 8.1 innings in 7 games so far this season allowing 8 ER and tonight he will be making his first start. He was 9-9 in 28 starts this season in Buffalo while pitching 137.0 innings with a 4.73 ERA. He has never faced the...
The New York Mets have won seven straight over the Miami Marlins, and have not lost when they have faced Josh Johnson this year.
Johnson has received very little support all season heading into his final start of 2012 on Monday night in Miami.
New York (73-86) is completing its fourth straight fourth-place finish in the NL East while Miami (67-92) is capping its third consecutive...
