Overview: The Marlins lost two of three each to Boston and Tampa for a 2-4 week. The team is now 4-11 for the month of June.
Positives: The Marlins scored more than twice in two whole games this week! Coincidentally, they won those two games.
Negatives: The terrible hitting continues, and Ozzie Guillen wants you to know that it's not the coaches' fault:
Nobody gives [hitting coach] Eduardo [Perez] credit when we were doing good. Now they’re going to (expletive) on him because we’re not hitting? That’s a bunch of (expletive). No, blame the players. They were good two weeks ago (with the) same hitting coach.Hard to argue with that.
Line of the Week: The combined performance of the Marlins bullpen on Sunday:
8.2 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 6 K, 1 BB, 117 pitches
Highlight of the Week: From the same game, Scott Cousins tripled home the winning run in the top of the 15th inning.
Looking Ahead: After an off-day tomorrow, Miami visits Boston for three games, then kicks off a homestand with a weekend series against the Blue Jays.
