Tampa Bay Rays and Miami Marlins Defending the State

Tonight both Florida teams are in action: Tampa Bay faces Toronto, while Miami takes on San Francisco.

Miami – The Marlins are in a 4 game series against the San Francisco Giants. They defeated the Giants last night 7 to 5 to start out the series. The Giants had a hard time last night with their starting pitcher, with Madison Bumgarner being ejected late in the sixth inning. Shortly before that, he had given up a single run that tied the game for the Marlins, which they were trailing throughout the majority of the game.

Only being the second start of the season for him, he was having much trouble with the umpire last night on his calls. Bumgarner and the umpire were not seeing eye to eye, not very satisfied with the strike and balls he was calling.

After getting taken out the game the Marlins did not shy away from coming back after going hitless in the first three innings, taking the win over the Giants.

Brian Anderson the rookie, JT Realmuto and Lewis Brinson combined for 8 of the 12 hits for the Marlins including home runs.
