Games in Puerto Rico: Yesterday’s Scores That Matter [WMQ]
Jun 29th, 2010 by Dan

He's a Big Guy - Florida Marlins at Baltimore Orioles 22 June 2010

He's kind of a big kid.

The Marlins went down to Puerto Rico to play a series against the Mets and build baseball interest in the Caribbean. Almost everyone else took the day off.

New York Mets (3) at Florida Marlins (10). The Fish got some serious offense going last night. Mike Stanton hit his second major league home run, a 3-run blast, and Nolasco had himself a quality start for the first time in a while. The Mets scored all three runs on two Jason Bay home runs, but couldn’t do much else against the Marlins. Florida’s record improves to 36-40. Manager news might come at the end of the week.

Washington Nationals (0) at Atlanta Braves (5). On a night where Washington needed to knock the Braves down a peg or two, there’s no better pitcher to rely on than Stephen Strasburg, except he had what may have been his worst start of the season with absolutely zero run support. It’s funny, of course, when you consider a regular quality start the worst start of his career, but Stephen went 6.1, gave up 4 runs (3 earned thanks to Desmond’s league leading errors), two walks, with seven strikeouts. He can have off-days like this if his team scores him runs, but the sleeping offense led to their current 33-44 record. I’m hoping they pick it up, because Braves losses can only be good for the rest of the NL East.
