Overview: The Marlins lost two of three in Arizona and have lost three straight to the Brewers.
Positives: [sits on hands] [whistles] Hey tomorrow is the MLB draft [fartsound]
Negatives: The Marlins are simply having a rough time. Already without their ace Josh Johnson, the team's main offensive weapon Hanley Ramirez has been sitting out since injuring his back last Sunday. With him out of the lineup the team has gone 1-5 due in large part to lack of clutch hitting. The team has left 29 men on base in the last three games. The team has lost four in a row, and all have been those crucial one-run games Edwin Rodriguez loves! The Law of averages sucks.
Line of the Week: The lone win of the week came in large part to Anibal Sanchez, who won his 4th game in May.
W, 8 IP, 2 R, 6 H, 8 K, 1 BB
Highlight of the Week: Logan Morrison gets the nod for a nifty catch in left field Saturday night, and thankfully he wasn't hurt.
Looking Ahead: The home stand continues with one more game against the Brewers before facing the Braves and Diamondbacks.
