The skid is over. The Florida Marlins won 5-2 on a nice night at Sun Life Stadium. Javier Vasquez through 6 1/3 innings, and got the W in the Marlins second win of the month.
The Marlins offense came from a solo homer by Gaby Sanchez in the first inning, an Omar Infante sac fly and rbi single, an RBI double and single for Mike Stanton. Stanton went 3-4 with 2 RBI's, a few days after being diagnosed with a right eye infection.
For the Angels, they got both runs in the 9th off of newly called up pitcher Jose Ceda. Ceda was acquired from the Cubs in exchange for former Marlins closer Kevin Gregg. Ervin santana got the loss for the Angels, who did not have his best stuff. The Marlins cannot get Torii Hunter out, as yesterday he went 3-4 and is now 4-8 in the series against the Marlins.
With Brad Hand being sent down to Jupiter, the Marlins will start RHP Brian Sanches for the second time this year. He pitched very well in the Marlins "bullpen" win in Los Angeles on May 30th. He will face Angels veteran starter Joel Pineiro on Wednesday night.
A good day for Marlins fans as they get off the schnide and get back into the win column. Maybe Jack McKeon is the spark the Marlins needed, and the fun continues tonight at 7:10 at sun Life Stadium with Sanches v Pineiro.
