Fish Recap: Marlins Split 4 Game Series with Rockies

The Marlins didn't have the hottest first few games of the season. The Marlins starting pitching was adequate keeping the games in hand but with the Marlins only scoring 4 runs, all on solo home runs, the offense just wasn't clicking.

That changed Saturday night, The Offense exploded. The Marlins combined for 16 hits and 7 runs, beating the Rockies for their 1st win of the season. Martin Prado and Miguel Rojas had big games with 3 hits each. Pablo Lopez also had a decent start, giving up 3 runs in 5.1 innings pitched.

On Sunday afternoon the Marlins had a big opportunity to even the series with a win and they didn't disappoint. Sandy Alcantara pitched like an ace going 8 inning with 6 strikeouts and giving up no runs. It was a very promising start for the young right hander. New addition Jorge Alfaro had a big 2 run base hit in the fourth giving all this young staff needed to secure this game. J.T. Riddle hit his second Home Run of the Season just for a little insurance.

The Marlins pulled together to split the series after a disappointing start. Which is really encouraging for this young ball club. This is going to be a young scrappy team, giving any team they face a headache.
