Marlins 3, Rockies 2: Rodgers’ four hits, Freeland’s seven innings not enough

Despite a commanding seven innings by Rockies starter Kyle Freeland and a 4-for-5 showing by by shortstop Brendan Rodgers, the Marlins capped a three-game sweep on some well-placed, decisive, eighth-inning singles.

The Rockies outhit Miami today 12-9. The Marlins recorded 12 total bases at the plate, while Colorado’s Rodgers recorded eight by himself. The curse of Marlins Park continued, however, and 4 23 innings of shutdown work by the Miami bullpen closed out a 3-2 final.

Colorado has now lost five of their last six games in Miami dating back to last season.
