It was a special night for the Miami Marlins as they celebrated their 25th anniversary wearing their throwback uniforms. The Marlins were decked out their teal pinstripes jersey and hats. The Fish came into the ballgame with a lot of energy and owned the game from the first pitch. Rookies Caleb Smith and Brian Anderson had big nights in the series opener. The Marlins top of the lineup continues to be productive and the Marlins bullpen does a good job of keeping the Padres off the scoreboard.
