Marlins Podcast Episodes
- Sunday’s Marlins MiLB Notes: Sixto Sánchez was scratched from his scheduled start with Pensacola. There was “no specific reason given” for the change, per Blue Wahoos broadcaster Erik Bremer, “but we have not been given any reason that there would be any concern.” Sánchez is not listed as the probable starter for any of next week’s Southern League Division Series games. The Jupiter Hammerheads are one win away from the Florida State League championship. They beat the Clearwater Threshers (Phillies affiliate) with a five-run, two-out rally in the sixth inning, featuring a grand slam by INF Carlos Santiago. LHP Dale Stanavich shined in relief, retiring eight of the nine batters he faced.
- For the first time in eight years, the Marlins swept a series against the Braves. They did so by averaging 12 runs per game. The Friday and Saturday victories were in doubt until the later innings, but the series finale was lopsided enough for Jacob Stallings to close it out on the mound.
- Jazz Chisholm Jr. stuffed the stat sheet over the weekend with two grand slams, five walks, three stolen bases and six runs scored.
- Jorge Soler made his return from the injured list by going 3-for-4 with a walk and his 36th home run of the season.
- Listen back to Sunday’s State of the Fish Twitter Space hosted by Grant Kiefer. It’s also available on the Fish On First podcast feed.
- NL Wild Card race updates: the Diamondbacks and Giants won, while the Cubs, Phillies and Reds lost. The Marlins are tied with the Cubs for the third Wild Card spot. Owning the head-to-head tiebreaker over Chicago, they truly control their own destiny.
- Elsewhere around the majors, the Orioles clinched their first postseason berth since 2016. The Angels lost for the 82nd time, ensuring a losing season. The Dodgers gave Freddie Freeman a day off, leaving Matt Olson (Braves) and Marcus Semien (Rangers) as the only MLB players with a chance to start all 162 regular season games.
