Ramirez and Kearns Both Hit Solo Bombs in Marlins Win!
- Updated: March 9, 2012
Carlos Zambrano was the starting pitcher for the fish today at Digital Domain Park. He faced the Mets, who recently beat the Marlins 7-0.
- The Starter: Zambrano struggled, as he gave up three runs and three walks in only 1 1/3 innings pitched. But he managed to get 4 outs, all of which via strikeouts.
- The Bullpen: Chad Gaudin, Gary Glover, Chris Hatcher, Jose Ceda, Ryan Webb, all together pitched 7.2 innings only allowing 1 run. So today the bullpen was successful. They all did their jobs.
- The Offense: Hanley Ramirez and Austin Kearns both hit their first home run in the Grapefruit League, both solo. Hanley ended up going 2 for 3, as we mentioned before; a homer and a single with 2 RBI’s. Kearns went 1 for 3 with a HR and a walk. Scott Cousins was on base 3 times. He went 2 for 4 with a double, a single and a walk.
- The Defense: Ramirez made an error at his new position. A hard hit ball went under the third baseman’s glove.
Final Score: The Miami Marlins defeat the New York Mets 5 to 4. Chad Gaudin got the win and Ryan Webb got his first save in the Grapefruit League.
Next Game: Anibal Sanchez was named the starter for Friday’s game against the Nationals last week, but due to some soreness in his right shoulder from last Friday’s bullpen session, he will not pitch. Newly acquired Wade LeBlanc will start for the Miami Marlins. Click here to read more about Anibal Sanchez’s soreness in his right shoulder.
