Miami Marlins Park Marlins D-backs 0-5

Joe Saunders

Carlos Zambrano

Aaron Hill   No locks

Justin Upton

Hanley Ramirez


Highlights:  The Quintessential Quintet of the league (Mouse, Shamu, Skipper, Stretch and Chief Bender) reveled in the splendor of the new Miami Marlins ballpark as they witnessed a pitching beauty by Diamondbacks hurler Joe Saunders, who threw a complete game shutout, lowering his ERA for the young season to 0.90.  Diamondbacks second sacker Aaron Hill had a 3-for-5 night with two runs and one RBI, blasting a sixth inning home run off the combustible Zambrano, who scattered ten hits in six innings of work, giving up three earned runs.   This marked the 23rd city for our HSL Road Show, the 31st Major League Ballpark, the 66th Trip game attended, and the 30th (all of them!) team.  Yay, us!

Miami Marlins Park Marlins D-backs 3-2

Ian Kennedy

Anibal Sanchez


Highlights:  The Hot Stove League boys were treated to a baseball classic on Saturday, with the visiting Diamondbacks taking a 2-0 lead in the top of the 1st on the strength of doubles by Willie Bloomquist and Gerardo Parra and a single by Miguel Montero.  In the top of the 2nd, Marlins twirler Anibal Sanchez continued to look shaky as he walked the opposing pitcher, Ian Kennedy, threw a wild pitch to next batter Willie Bloomquist, advancing Kennedy to second, and then walked Bloomquist to put two runners on with no outs.  This earned a coaching visit to the mound.  Whatever was said to Sanchez must have worked, because he proceeded to strike out the side for the second straight inning, and then pitched five more innings without giving up another hit or walk.  For the game, Sanchez pitched 7 innings, gave up 3 hits, walked 4, yielded 2 earned runs, and struck out an amazing 14.  The Marlins rallied to score single runs in the bottom of the 7th and then the 8th to tie it, and the park erupted in the bottom of the 9th when Hanley Ramirez laced a line drive to left field with two outs to plate Giancarlo Stanton with the winning run, in dramatic walk-off fashion.
