The Miami Marlins saw a win vanish as A.J. Ramos allowed the Toronto Blue Jays to walk off with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday.
Ramos had been exceptional since taking over as Miami's closer but ran into immediate trouble in this one. After a lead-off hit, Ramos retired the next hitter before serving up a game-winning two run home run to Edwin Encarnacion. It was the first blown save for Ramos since becoming closer and his third overall on the year.
The loss means that Miami loses this series which snaps a streak of three series won in a row for the team.
Before the tough loss, Stanton provided some fireworks for Miami. A pair of home runs gave him 21 on the season which leads all of Major League Baseball. The slugger also leads MLB with his 51 runs batted in and continues to hold onto a starting spot in the All-Star game.
Stanton was not the only Miami player to flex his muscles on Tuesday as Christian Yelich also went deep for the third time this year. Yelich who signed a big extension in the off-season has had a tough campaign thus far. On the year, Yelich is only hitting .217 and has had difficulty taking the ball the other way.
Dan Haren continued his great 2015 season with seven strong innings. The veteran allowed only two runs on three hits and lowered his E.R.A. to 3.12 on the season. Haren is 6-2 on the year and has been Miami's most dependable pitcher. Due to the blown save, Haren was left with a no-decision instead of a seventh win.
Miami will try to salvage a win in the series on Wednesday when Tom Koehler takes the mound.
