The Marlins got out to a fast start in Game 1 but they tried to keep out starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara one inning too long and that was the mistake. Alcantar gave up eight hits and five earned runs. Reliever Yimi Garcia only went 0.1 innings giving up three hits and three earned runs.On offense the Marlins were led by Garrett Cooper who had one hit and drove in two runs. One problem for the Marlins is they are without Starling Marte who is still dealing with a broken hand.
On the other side of this matchup is the Braves who got out to a slow start but the offense got going in the middle innings including six runs in the 7th inning. Travis d”Arnaud was the star of the show having three hits, two walks, and four RBI’s. In this game the Marlins can’t fall behind early and play wit that type of fire. Getting the first couple of runs would go a long way in winning this Game 2.
