The scene Sunday was one Marlins fans had become numb to at this point. Elieser Hernández, the presumed odd man out in a rotation that should be expecting Max Meyer any day now, looked sharp through the first four innings, with Milwaukee having only 1 unearned run to show for their early efforts.
But, as has been the case a time too many before it, the Brewers lineup was set to turn over for the third time entering the 5th. No. 9 hitter Jace Peterson would deposit an 86 mph changeup into the right-center field seats, cutting the Miami lead to 3-2.
