Marlins Top Dodgers 2-0

The Miami Marlins shut out the LA Dodgers to win 2-0 last night. Miami has now captured the first three games of the series over the Dodgers. Miami’s Justin Nicolino was called up to the big leagues earlier this week and was dominate in his season debut. Nicolino only gave up two hits in 7.3 scoreless innings. He says the key to his performance was changing speeds, mixing in and out, and the defense was doing their thing.

The 24-year-old left hander was called up from Triple-A New Orleans and retired 12 of the last 13 batters he faced, walked two and struck out two. In all, the Marlins got 22 outs from starter Nicolino after throwing 99 pitches.

The Marlins relievers loaded the bases in the eighth, but the Dodgers came away empty. LA has dropped three straight and haven’t scored against the Marlins in 14 innings. Jose Urena got the final outs of the game and recorded his first career save.

Marlins Manager Don Mattingly says they’ve been playing pretty good all year long but now are starting to put wins together and gain confidence.

Gianocarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna hit RBI singles in the first to provide the 2-0 lead for the remainder of the game. Dodgers Starter Scott Kazmir, went on to throw five scoreless innings after the Marlins put a quick two on the board.

Nicolino was on fire last night, but also, the Dodgers offense struggled. They are hitting .160 and have score five runs in their last three games.

Miami is one win away from a four-game sweep of the Dodgers. The final game in this series is set for tonight at 10:10 p.m. On the mound for the Marlins is Jose Fernandez and will take on Dodgers Kenta Maeda.
