Tall, Dark & Mormon scattered 5 hits and 2 runs over 7 innings while striking out 5 on Saturday in New York.
Overview: The Marlins took 2 of 3 from the Phillies then dropped 2 of 3 in New York, for a quick 3-3 road trip.
Positives: A series win in Philadelphia is always good, and picking up a win against longtime nemesis Jamie Moyer is icing on the cake. Sean West has gotten off to a promising start, going 7 innings while giving up only one run in Friday's loss. The Fish also got quality starts out of Josh Johnson, Chris Volstad, and Andrew Miller this week.
Negatives: Hanley Ramirez left Tuesday's game with a pulled groin, and did not return to the starting lineup until Saturday. It could have been worse, but any injury to Hanley makes me nervous. The Marlins outscored the Mets 10-5, but only won one game over the weekend.
Highlight of the Week: Jeremy Hermida was a triple short of the cycle on Saturday, notching a double, a home run, and 4 RBI.
Dan went 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run jack against Myers on Wednesday.
Looking Ahead: The Fish will host consecutive four-game series against Milwaukee and San Francisco.
