The Marlins home run helmet! Remember that thing? After nearly two weeks of gathering dust, I figured the team might have forgotten to pack it for this road trip. In the seventh inning of Friday’s game, Avisaíl García became the first Fish player since July 9 to earn a moment with the celebratory prop. García’s solo shot to right punctuated a desperately needed Marlins win over the Pirates.
For the second start in a row, Braxton Garrett obliterated a short-handed Bucs lineup.
