The Miami Marlins were back in the win column Tuesday night as they defeated the Cleveland Indians 3-1. The Marlins have won three out of their last four games. Starting pitcher Pablo Lopez was dominate as he might have thrown his best outing in his young MLB career. Lopez had a no-hitting going into the six until Jose Ramirez singled into right field. Neil Walker and Starlin Castro had good nights at the plate and Jorge Alfaro continues to drive the ball the other way very well.
It was a rough start to the series for the Cleveland Indians as their offense was a no show against Miami. Right-handed pitcher Carlos Carrasco got the start for the Cleveland Indians. Carrasco threw four innings allowing two hits, no runs, no walks ad four strikeouts. Carrasco left the game with a leg injury after a minor collision at first base with Marlins Neil Walker.

At the plate, the Indians had no answers against Miami’s pitching staff getting only three hits in the game. Tyler Naquin went 1-3 with a RBI single up the middle. Jose Ramirez and Carlos Gonzalez both went 1-4 with base hits on the night.
