9/13/2020 : Marlins 8 ( 23-21 ) Phillies 1 ( 23-22 ) - Game 2 - DH - Seven Innings
Miami scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning as Jesus Aguilar singled to plate Corey Dickerson ( BB ). Matt Joyce singled to score Starling Marte ( singled ). Brian Anderson singled to score Aguilar.
Alec Bohm homered to center field ( 436 feet ) to lead off the second inning for the Phillies.
Starling Marte and Jesus Aguilar hit back to back doubles to score a Marlins run in the third inning.
Zach Eflin gave up a double to Marte and walked Aguilar to start the fifth inning ... the skipper then hooked him. Not a great day for the big right hander ... 4+ IP, 4 R, 8 H, 2 BB, 4 K’s. Ranger Suarez stranded both runners to end the fifth inning.
Suarez got lit up in the sixth inning yielding 4 runs on four hits and a walk including a home run by Chad Wallach.
The Phillies were held to four hits in the game ... they had just three in the first game.
Lethargic effort for the team ... didn’t have much energy today it seemed. Not a good sign.
LHP Braxton Garrett went five strong innings in his major league debut for Miami ... the 18th player to make their big league debut for the Marlins this season.
The Marlins now take over second place from the Phillies in the NL East.
Albert Pujols hit his 660th career home run today in the Angels game.
Alec Mills threw a no hitter for the Cubs against Milwaukee in their 12-0 win.
