One day after the Marlins suffered the worst ninth-inning collapse in franchise history, manager Ozzie Guillen shaved off his mustache, telling 790 The Ticket he did it "so people don't know who I am" and so that they won't say "that's the overrated manager we brought here."

Guillen made the comments with humor tingeing his voice.

But Monday's 8-7 loss to the Cardinals in 10 innings was no laughing matter, as Marlins closer Heath Bell squandered a 6-2 lead in the ninth.

According to STATS Inc., no Marlins pitcher had ever blown a ninth-inning lead so large.

Seven times previously the Marlins had blown a three-run lead in the ninth before losing.
