Marlins Fall 3-2 Against the Nationals
- Updated: March 31, 2012
Two RBI single by Jose Reyes and Logan Morrison wasn’t enough to beat the Washington Nationals 2 – 3.
Josh Johnson pitched his last appearance until the big Opening Night. Johnson had a not so good outing by giving 3 runs, all earn runs with 6 hits and a walk in 5.1 innings pitch, but striking out 9 batters. He finish his Spring Training with a 2-2 record with 24 struck outs, 10 walks, 1 home run allowed and an ERA of 2.42 in 22.1 innings. Pretty nice if you look at his spring numbers:
The offense was and is still on and off this spring. In the bottom of the 3er inning, Marlins second baseman Omar Infante started off the inning with a double to left field. Two batters later, Johnson was help himself by hitting a single to center and moving Infante to third base. The next batter, Jose Reyes hits a RBI single to left to tie the game at one.
Later in the top of the 6th, once again the inning is leaded of with a double but this time by Emilio “Lo Viste” Bonifacio. Hanley Ramirez was next at the plate and batted a sac fly to right to move Bonifacio easily to third base. Giancarlo walks. Logan Morrison goes to the plate and hits a single to right field to score Bonifacio to reduce the Nats lead to 1 run.
Beau Jones, Ryan Webb and Gary Glover all had action in this game and all had scoreless appearance .
Next Game: Mark Buehrle takes the mound for the fish as they host the Mets at Roger Dean Stadium in their Spring Training finale at 1:05. You could here it on 790 The Ticket or on the Marlins Radio Network.
- Outstanding spring training by LeBlanc gets rewarded with demotion
If I told you a pitcher ended spring training with 20 2/3 innings pitched, a scintillating 1.31 ERA with two walks and 19 strikeouts, you would probably think this guy was if not an Opening Day starter at the very least in the starting rotation. Well think again. Southpaw Wade LeBlanc, acquired from the Padres in the offseason was optioned to AAA New Orleans. He has been deemed the 6th starter. At the very least, after this spring he should be with the big club Opening Night.
But the whole point of LeBlanc was to increase the pitching depth in minors. If/when someone gets hurt, he’ll be back.
