The Marlins have played well this season and are second in the NL East. But the start to the second half has not been the best for the Miami-based team and their fans. They lost another game even after showing a great fighting spirit. Even though the Marlins put four pasts against the Orioles’ defense. But it was not enough as the team lost the game by the margin of just one run.

Even though the Marlins fell short of one run, their offense did a decent job. For them, Jon Berti and others scored a single run. Berti finished it at an average of 0.500 and an OPS of 1.000. But it was their pitching which let the team down. They claimed only five strikeouts and leaked runs, making things difficult for themselves.
