Marlins Drop Another 13-Inning Affair
The Marlins played 13 innings twice in the past four games and have lost both contests
Tom Koehler imploded in the sixth inning on Monday
The Miami Marlins played extra innings for the third time in four days and lost 5-4 to the Chicago Cubs in 13 on Monday.
For the second straight start, Tom Koehler was done in by the sixth inning. Koehler was cruising and shutting the Cubs down before everything unraveled in the frame.
The right-hander allowed all four of the runs he gave up in the game during the sixth. In all, Koehler struck out five, walked none and surrendered five hits.
Chris Hatcher, Mike Dunn and A.J. Ramos combined to work two scoreless innings to keep the game tied going to the bottom of the eighth.
Steve Cishek pitched the ninth with the game tied as a save situation became an impossibility. The closer turned in a 1-2-3 inning.
After three shutout innings from Bryan Morris and Dan Jennings, the winning run came home in the 13th off of Jacob Turner. The right-hander was making his first relief appearance since being moved to the pen earlier in the day. Turner fell to 2-5 on the season with the loss.
Giancarlo Stanton got the scoring started for Miami with his 19th home run. The two-run blast came in the first inning and gave the slugger 56 runs batted in on the year.
Jake Marisnick made his season debut for the Marlins in this one and went 2-6 with a run scored. Marisnick was promoted earlier in the day to replace Christian Yelich who headed to the disabled list.
Anthony DeSclafani will make the start for the Marlins on Tuesday. The rookie was recalled from New Orleans earlier in the day.
