Marlins come out victorious in series against Dodgers

Venezuelan baseball player Miguel RojasMiguel Rojas put the cherry on the cake in the series that the Marlins snatched from Dodgers in his own home, winning the last game of three by 8-6, with a nice yellow, blue and red homers. "First series we won, it feels pretty good, because one of the best pitchers in the big leagues we could fight to score a couple of races and have the game in our favor," Rojas told ESPN in dressing rooms, after specifying in front of Powerful Clayton Kershaw a 3-run homer to give the pack to the visitors in the fifth inning.

"I played with him and I have an idea of what he's trying to do with the hitters; the pitcher who sent me that turn was looking for him and I could connect him "he commented. Although the start of the Marlins has been marred by 17 losses, winning this series is praiseworthy especially for the individual efforts as the young pitcher Jarlin Garcia, who with an ERA of 4.73 in the regular season, allowed only four hits in six innings in the first game on the mound of Chávez Ravine. "I am very happy with what is happening with my career, we are focused, we are working hard and trying to get out there and give our best; it's what I've been working on since I was a kid in the minor leagues and it's paying off, "commented the left, who recognized the Dodgers' outstanding bat in the second duel. "As for Kike Hernández, I made a good pitching, he managed to have contact, he won, but it's part of the game, sometimes he wins, sometimes he loses; I kept focused on keeping the ball low and trying to get out of the inning, "he said.

With Kenley Jansen inactive in the ninth inning, another pitcher did the job to preserve a draw, eventually deviating from the rule of using closers for the last inning would cost Dave Roberts the game. "It was a decision that did not work and I assume full responsibility; I did it against what the books say, I took a risk, "said the strategist at the time. Keeping Jansen away, who seemed to be emerging from his April stalemates, was disconcerting; the player, for example, registered straight in the 90 miles against the Nationals last weekend. Beyond the rain on the wet for the Dodgers, the ninth with a record of 11-12, is in the curve of the reflection to adjust the duels that come against the divisional rivals, the San Francisco Giants and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

For its part, for the darlings of Derek Jeter the road just begins. J.T. Realmuto who hit two homers under the starry sky of the last game, is shown as a key piece to advance. The ninth of Don Mattingly will be measured soon before the Rockies and the Phillies looking to achieve in Miami, and the hand of the veteran Dominican Starlin Castro, the feats achieved in foreign land. "It's a young team and I feel very good so far," Castro told ESPN, sharing the key to his interaction with the rookies: "I try to help them, prepare every day to play, be successful in the major leagues. , I think they are very humble and listen to what you tell them. " Castro, who incidentally keeps the batting average at .300 in the regular season, said that this will face the very Kershaw, the preparation before any pitcher does not change. The native of Monte Cristi also took the opportunity to make clear the murmur of corridors about his supposed intention to get out of the Marlins. "Those were rumors that circulated in the networks, I never spoke with any journalist, I never said that; I'm comfortable here, it's a long season, I'm going to try to do my job here, and nothing else, "he concluded.
