Marlins slump continues with 7-6 loss to Diamondbacks

MIAMI -- The Arizona Diamondbacks scored the run that put them ahead to stay Thursday thanks to a walk, a bobbled bunt and two infield singles. "It wasn't very conventional," manager Chip Hale said.

Stanton's power surges haven't been enough to keep Marlins afloat

Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is doing all he can at the plate for his team, but his efforts haven't been enough to yank the Marlins out of the depths of a disappointing start to the 2015 season. As of Wednesday, Stanton is tied with Bryce Harper for the most runs batted in (38) in MLB. However, that figure accounts for over one-fourth of the Marlins' RBIs, as Miami ranks...

Carter Capps working to remove hop from his delivery

Miami Marlins reliever Carter Capps has become known for his jerky hop-step pitching motion, but now he's working to take the idiosyncratic step out of his delivery. As he transfers weight from his lower body to his upper body, Carter hops off the mound towards home plate.

On Sunday, the Miami Marlins fired their manager, Mike Redmond, barely half a year after he received votes for the 2014 NL Manager of the Year.

The Marlins’ Middle-Infield Magic Trick

The Miami Marlins have been in the news this week, because they did something that’s at worst kind of stupid, and at best pretty confusing.

The Marlins, managers and the changing game

On Sunday, the Marlins fired manager Mike Redmond. It’s what teams do when they find themselves performing worse than expected, even if expectations of contention were probably less realistic than the hype would have suggested.

Ichiro ties Babe Ruth on all-time hits list

The hit, Suzuki's second of the game, was No. 2,873 in his career, which tied him with Babe Ruth...
