Three Things: Giancarlo Stanton Carries Miami Marlins To Victory
After coming off a 6-5 win against the Colorado Rockies Friday night, the Miami Marlins did it again defeating the Rockies by the score of 6-5. This time, the Marlins did not have to make any comebacks, but the bullpen had to keep it together and luckily, they did.
1. Stanton Gets Record: Friday night, Giancarlo Stanton hit a home run to extend his home run streak at Coors Field to five games, tied for the most by a visiting player. Saturday, Stanton broke the record as he lifted a homer off of opposing pitcher Tyler Chatwood in the first inning to give the Marlins a 4-0 lead. Stanton would record three RBI on the play.
2. Eovaldi Stays Steady: Nathan Eovaldi took the mound for Miami. In six and two-thirds innings, Eovaldi struck out three batters, walked four and allowed just one run on six hits. The lone run coming in the fourth inning when Tyler Colvin doubled to score Dexter Fowler, who walked to start the inning. Eovaldi picked up the win as he improves to 4-8.
3. Cishek Records Save: The bullpen was the opposite of what it was Friday night. For lack of a better word, it was lousy. The Rockies scored four runs in the final two frames to put the pressure on the Marlins before Steve Cishek settled down after giving up two runs with two outs. Colvin singled to score Fowler and Wilin Rosario. With two outs and Colvin on first, Jordan Pacheco would ground out to Carlos Lee to end the game. Cishek is credited with his ninth save.
