Marlins and Rays on the Road

The Miami Marlins and the Tampa Bay Rays are on the road this week.

The Marlins head to Minnesota after shutting out the New York Mets 1-0 Sunday night.

Jose Fernandez says he is learning how to control his pitches which was clear Sunday night when he pitched seven innings, allowing four hits, no runs and matched his career best in strikeouts at 14.

With this win Fernandez is now 23-1 at the Marlins stadium and has eight consecutive wins, equaling Chris Hammonds record which was set in 1993.

Unfortunately, the Mets were without outfielders Yoenis Cespedes and Juan Lagares, both nursing injuries, and captain David Wright, who went on the disabled list Friday .

The Marlins are off today but will face the Twins on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Rays are in Arizona and will play the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight.


The Rays are coming off of a series win over the Minnesota Twins this past weekend.

Rays manager Kevin Cash says Evan Longoria and Logan Morrison are carrying the team right now.

Longoria has five home runs in his last four games, the longest streak in his career, this brings Longoria’s season home runs to has 14. While Morrison has a .411 Avg and four home runs in his last four games.

You can catch the Rays game live on ESPN Gainesville 95.3 FM starting at 9 p.m.
