Wednesday’s Games

Marlins Podcast Episodes

  • Wednesday’s Marlins MiLB notes: It was a rare winless day for Marlins affiliates. Peyton Burdick homered in his first game back in Jacksonville. He also struck out twice and got caught stealing. The Beloit Sky Carp committed six errors. The Jupiter Hammerheads were rained out.
  • The Marlins erupted for a season-high 10 runs in support of Sandy Alcantara. Jonathan Davis went 3-for-4 with an opposite-field home run in his first-ever Marlins start. Yuli Gurriel became the fourth-oldest player in Marlins history to have a four-hit game–only Ichiro Suzuki, Andre Dawson and Luis González were older. Luis Arraez exited the game early with a left leg cramp.
  • Elsewhere around the majors, the Orioles stunned the Yankees with an eight-run rally in the seventh inning. The Phillies came back from a 5-0 deficit to beat the Diamondbacks—the under-performing Trea Turner forced extra innings with a clutch home run. For the third straight start (and fifth time this season), Michael Kopech allowed two hits or fewer.
  • The Marlins have a 53.1% chance to win their series finale vs. the Rockies, per FanGraphs. Triple-A Jacksonville (7:05 p.m. ET) is at home while Double-A Pensacola (7:35 p.m. ET), High-A Beloit (7:30 p.m. ET) and Low-A Jupiter (5:00 p.m. ET doubleheader) are on the road.
  • To avoid another Jazz Chisholm Jr. situation, “additional padding will be added to the portions of the outfield wall at loanDepot Park that include exposed cement block,” Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Rosenthal also confirms Christina De Nicola’s original report that Chisholm’s goal is to be reinstated from the injured list for the June 9-11 series against the White Sox.
  • Congrats to the Florida Panthers on advancing to the Stanley Cup final!
