  • Young, Campbell come up big off the bench to propel Mets to win over Marlins

    New York Post "A pinch-hit homer from Chris Young, an outstanding defensive play by Daniel Murphy and a win in a one-run game. What’s gotten into these Mets? Young’s homer tied the game in the seventh and Eric Campbell’s pinch-hit single an inning later knocked in the winning run in a 5-4 victory over the..." July 13

  • Marlins getting calls on Giancarlo Stanton

    Boston Globe "When the Marlins lost six of eight in late June/early July, Miami general manager Dan Jennings started getting calls. About you-know-who. “I think teams thought that by losing a few games we were out of it and we were selling off,” Jennings said. “So sure, I started to get calls and teams..." July 13

  • Mets use long ball to crush Marlins

    New York Post "The Mets might need to move back the fences in their bandbox ballpark.

July 12

  • Goldschmidt's walkoff double leads the Diamondbacks over Marlins

    Arizona Republic "Aaron Hill's numbers are tumbling, his playing time is dwindling and his name keeps surfacing in trade rumors.

  • Ozuna’s late-game heroics propel Marlins over Diamondbacks

    Miami Herald "It had been exactly three years and a day since Brad Hand started and won. His long drought didn’t come to an end Tuesday in the desert of Arizona. But neither Hand nor the Marlins lost. While Hand failed to receive the win, the Marlins pulled out a dramatic victory on Marcell Ozuna’s..." July 09

  • Arizona Diamondbacks run over Miami Marlins

    Arizona Republic "The Diamondbacks didn't need RHP Chase Anderson to be perfect, considering their offense provided him with an eight-run cushion, but it was hard not to appreciate Anderson's handiwork in a win over the Miami Marlins on Monday in front of 17,103 at Chase field. "I just had fastball command right..." July 08

  • Alvarez leads Marlins to 8-4 win against Cardinals

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "It has become a perfect constant for the Marlins: Henderson Alvarez starts on the mound, they win.

July 07

  • Marlins rally from four down to beat Cardinals 6-5

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "After grounding into a game-ending double play with the bases loaded Friday night, Casey McGehee lamented how he "spoiled" the chance and wished he could have back the at-bat.

  • Cards pull escape act against Marlins

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch "As July steams toward baseball’s annual trade deadline, so much of the focus around and on contending teams will be ways to improve by looking beyond their clubhouse, shopping for help from outside the organization. In what probably will be a recurring theme from the Cardinals this month, general..." July 05

  • Miami Marlins’ Casey McGehee is at peace with low All-Star vote support

    Miami Herald "The deadline for fans to vote for the All-Star Game was 11:59 p.m. Thursday night, and barring some ballot-stuffing that hasn’t been seen before, Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee is going to need the support of his peers in the player vote to earn a trip to the Midsummer..."

  • Phillies mount comeback win over Marlins

    CSN Philly "Ryne Sandberg considered calling a team meeting before the Phillies played the finale of a three-game series against Miami on Thursday night.

  • Marlins lose lead in eighth, walk-off Phillies in 11th

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Having already set the major league record for most losses of 13 or more innings in a month, the Marlins on Tuesday didn't let it get that far.

  • Miami Marlins reassure Giancarlo Stanton they are not trying to trade him

  • Jake Marisnick will get the squeeze when Christian Yelich returns from the DL

    Hardball Talk "Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich will return from the disabled list on Sunday, and when he does, he’ll take back his spot in left field, while Marcell Ozuna will slide back to center field, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports.

  • A's beat Marlins 7-6 in 14 innings

    Oakland Tribune "Veteran left-hander Jeff Francis was the last man standing in the A's bullpen but nonetheless was asked to preserve a next-to-impossible situation in the 14th inning Saturday -- bases loaded, one out and a one-run lead. He did it to perfection, getting a strikeout and a game-ending fly ball to..." June 29

  • Oakland A's win in ninth despite blowing four-run lead in Miami

    Oakland Tribune "Once upon a Friday, the A's blew a four-run lead. It was bound to happen; they hadn't done that all season.

  • Marlins' Alvarez, three relievers hold off Phillies

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "The Marlins didn't have a good offensive game Wednesday.

  • Byrd goes deep as Phillies down Marlins

    Philly.com "On Monday night, soon after Marlon Byrd capitulated for the final out in another Phillies shutout, the rightfielder grabbed a bat and settled into the black leather chair next to his locker.

  • Unable to cook at home, Marlins do some road work

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Most of their recent attempts at home cooking left the Marlins wanting to eat out. Back on the road Monday, they whipped up a more palatable result. The offense still is more fizzle than sizzle, but the seven hits sufficed for starter Nathan Eovaldi and four relievers in the 4-0 win over the..." June 24

  • Mets enjoy rare laugher, pound Marlins

    New York Post "There is no such thing as overkill for a team like the Mets.

  • DeGrom finally gets first big league win as Mets blank Marlins

    New York Post "Jacob deGrom did his best to flip the equation and turn Saturday into the shortest day of the season for the Mets. Stress was kept to a minimum.

  • Ozuna's arm, Marisnick's wheels help Marlins hold off Mets

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Marcell Ozuna knew one thing for certain as the fly ball floated his way in the ninth inning Friday. He was coming up throwing. Most everybody at Marlins Park figured the Mets had tied the game on a Chris Young sacrifice fly to left. Not on Ozuna's arm. Having already thrown out a man at the..." June 21

  • Zack Wheeler’s complete-game shutout sparks Mets past Marlins

    New York Post "One year and a day removed from his Super Tuesday debut, Zack Wheeler reminded the Mets what all the fuss was about.

  • The union does not plan on pushing for or agreeing to a smokeless tobacco ban

    Hardball Talk "Ken Rosenthal spoke to Tony Clark, head of the MLBPA. The topic: smokeless tobacco.

  • Arrieta whiffs 11, Cubs win 6-1

  • Three-year old Marlins Park springs a leak during rainstorm

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "As the Miami Marlins surged past the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night for a 6-4 victory, water from a rainstorm got through the closed roof and fell onto sections down the right-field line near the foul pole. The water was observed dropping from the roof onto section 1, and also dropping from..." June 18

  • Jones ends power drought in Marlins win over Cubs

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "The contact didn't coincide with any of the thunder claps audible from inside Marlins Park Tuesday night. It didn't make Garrett Jones' three-run, seventh-inning homer any less dramatic. Jones' first since May 23 was perfectly timed, considering it eclipsed a one-run deficit and proved the..." June 18

Ramos answered in the affirmative, inducing a 5-2-3 Russell Martin..." June 15

  • Pirates hang on for win over Marlins, return to .500

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "The Pirates' bats have carried the club back to the .500 mark. The offense lifted the team to an 8-6 victory over the Marlins on Saturday, a win that included a season-best 18 hits and brought the Pirates (34-34) back to the break-even mark for the first time since April 17.

  • Pirates go 13 innings to snare a win against Marlins

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "What with all the attention paid to Gregory Polanco in the past six months, his first major league homer might have lacked the necessary gravitas had it come in the fourth inning of some random game. The occasion Friday seemed appropriate. Polanco’s first career home run gave the Pirates an 8-6..." June 14

    Miami Herald "After a successful rehab assignment stint in recent days with Double-A Jacksonville, Rafael Furcal is returning to Class A Jupiter to play in a few more games.

  • Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez avoids serious injury in Miami’s win over Chicago Cubs

    Miami Herald "With Jose Fernandez already lost for the season, the Marlins could ill afford to have their best remaining starter go down, as well.
