Overview: The Marlins were swept by Atlanta in the first home series of the season, dropping their record to 1-8.
Negatives: The Marlins were shutout twice, bringing them up to four shutouts in the first nine games; apparently there's an attendance problem?
Line of the Series: Kevin Slowey pitched a good game on Monday, but since his teammates could only muster 2 hits, he got charged with a 2-0 loss:
7 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 0.438 WPA
Highlight of the Series: Kudos to the fan that snuck a raccoon into Marlins Park.
Did a Marlins fan bring a raccoon into the ballpark tonight? PIC (via @mike_cugno) twitter.com/AKuperstein/st…
