And that poor fat lady must be tied up in a closet somewhere because it is far from over for the Florida Marlins! A few weeks ago, the word ‘postseason’ was out of the Marlins vocabulary, but after tonight’s 9th straight win, it is evident that the Marlins still have a chance at the World Series.
With hot bats, great defense, and fresh players, the Marlins have every chance to make it in the race in the NL East. This evening’s game began a little rocky for pitcher, Josh Johnson, but you would’ve never been able to tell with the Marlins hot bats. Dan Uggla blasted a two run dinger in the first, Amezaga shot a 3 run homer to right field in the 5th, and Cantu added his 29th to his HR counter in the 8th. With help from every player on the team, including the newest addition Cameron Maybin who has gotten 8 consecutive hits at bat, the Marlins defeated the Phillies 14-2.
Hopefully the Marlins can keep on doing what they are doing and reclaim their spot at first in the NL East and make it to the play offs! Good luck, boys!
