Offishial news, 9/29/23: Suspended game creates chaos; postseason roster projection

Today’s Marlins news roundup also reflects on a unique no-hitter that took place a decade ago.

Thursday’s Games

Marlins Podcast Episodes

  • Once again, the Marlins offense was silenced by an underwhelming opposing starting pitcher. Once again, they came up with clutch, late-game hits when they absolutely needed them. But this story does not have a familiar ending—the ending won’t be written until Monday. After a rain delay of three-plus hours, Thursday’s game was suspended. If necessary to determine a postseason berth or postseason seeding, the Marlins will come back to Citi Field and resume the ninth inning on Monday at 1:10 p.m.
  • Jesús Luzardo set a new Marlins single-season record for most strikeouts by a left-handed pitcher (208). Bryan De La Cruz made a crucial baserunning blunder, but did his best to compensate by going 3-for-3 with a walk. Still no action for Luis Arraez (left ankle sprain), who hasn’t played a complete game for Miami since September 18.
  • NL Wild Card race updates: the Cubs and Diamondbacks lost. Chicago dropped three straight games in Atlanta by a combined total of four runs. The Marlins lead the Cubs by half a game for the third Wild Card spot.
  • Elsewhere around the majors, J.P. Crawford‘s two-out, two-run walk-off double kept the Mariners’ season alive. The Orioles reached 100 wins and clinched the AL East title.
  • We’ve got a new episode of Fish On First LIVE streaming tonight at 5:30 p.m. ET on YouTube/Twitch/Twitter. Super Subscribers, submit your series predictions before first pitch.

  • Everybody should be available out of the Marlins bullpen tonight, though Edward Cabrera can make a start on regular rest if they want to go in that direction. Following the game, the Fish On First staff will record a special reaction podcast (available on the FOF channel wherever you get your pods).
  • Glenn Geffner’s top 10 Marlins wins of the season on View from the Bleachers: Apr. 27 at Braves, May 16 vs. Nationals, May 31 vs. Padres, Jun. 10 at White Sox, Jun. 11 at White Sox, Jun. 22 vs. Pirates, Jul. 5 vs. Cardinals, Aug. 2 vs. Phillies, Aug. 9 at Reds and Aug. 13 vs. Yankees.
  • On this day 10 years ago, a wild pitch capped Henderson Alvarez’s wild no-hitter on the last day of the season. The game was on the verge of going into extra innings when Luke Putkonen’s breaking ball went to the backstop, allowing Giancarlo Stanton to scurry home from third.

  1. It is indeed Edward Cabrera starting tonight, as alluded to above.

  2. Finishing up the regular season with a boring 2-games-to-1 Miami series win prediction. MVP: Jake Burger.
