The Marlins beat the Rockies 8-3 last night, but more importantly, Ricky Nolasco secured the first win for the starting rotation in 20 tries. Dude went 6 innings, giving up three runs while striking out five.
Also of note, Hanley is quietly going on a tear. He tater-totted for the fourth time in five games, over which he has gone 11 for 22. The only problem: all home runs have been of the solo variety. I blame B-Face. Bring on Chris Coghlan, and put Hermida towards the front of the lineup (his OBP is a quiet .402 this year).
Tall, Dark & Mormon takes the hill tonight. Will the good times continue?
