Marlins Allow 14 Runs as Winning Streak Ends

The Marlins saw their seven game winning streak come to an end on Sunday in Milwaukee

The Miami Marlins fell to the Milwaukee Brewers by a final score of 14-5 on Sunday to end their winning streak.

The Marlins had won a season-high seven games in a row prior to Sunday's loss. Miami was one win away from tying the franchise record for road wins in a row. Even with this loss, the Marlins ended up going 7-3 on the ten game road trip. Miami is .500 on the season and in fourth place in the National League East.

Tom Koehler started the series finale and had a rough time. The right-hander allowed 8 runs in 2.1 innings. Koehler walked two and allowed eight hits while compiling zero strikeouts. Koehler's E.R.A is now 7.25 on the season to go with a 2-3 record.

Cody Ege came in to relieve Koehler and allowed all of the right-hander's inherited runners to score. Ege had a rough time on the mound as he also allowed three runs of his own. The lefty gave up a walk and six hits in 1.2 innings and could end up returning to the minor leagues soon.

Marcell Ozuna homered for the second day in a row and now has four this season. Derek Dietrich continued to fill in for Dee Gordon admirably with a two-hit day which included his second triple of the season.

Miami is off on Monday before starting a series at home on Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Justin Nicolino is scheduled to be on the mound for the series opener.
