Ricky Nolasco Looks to Make Marlins History in his 2nd Opportunity
- Updated: May 17, 2012
Offense was the key to winning the last Marlins game, which was against the Atlanta Braves. The Marlins managed to score 8 runs among 10 hits and went 5-14 with runners in scoring position.
The Marlins will look to win this 2-game series tonight in Atlanta. First pitch is set at 7:10 PM ET at Turner Field. Ricky Nolasco (4-1) was trying to make Marlins history in his last outing by breaking the Marlins wins mark, which he is tied at 68 with Dontrelle Willis. He’ll see if he can do it tonight when he takes the hill for the Marlins.
As for Atlanta tonight, Brandon Beachy, who is 4-1 with an ERA of 1.60, will be on the mound. He allowed just one run over six innings in a win at St. Louis on Saturday.
Last night. Emilio Bonifacio stole his 20th base of the season. He is now 20 for 20 for the season, and his total career stolen bases is 100. Also last night, Giancarlo Stanton hit his 7th bomb of the month. He is the 2nd home run leader for the month of May as he trails Carlos Beltran, who has 8.
Obviously May has been a great month for the Fish after a disappointing April and with a win tonight, the Marlins could be 13-3 for the month.
The game will be on Fox Sports Florida and it can be heard on the radio at Majic 102.7, WAQI 710 (Spanish).
