Now that the seven-game losing streak is over and the Miami Marlins have won two straight over the New York Mets, is the light finally shining a bit brighter in south Florida. Will this series win for the ball club, the second of the season, turn this season around?
Probably not. But in 42 games this season, there hasn’t been a lot to cheer about with this organization. The 12 wins Miami has amassed is being celebrated because it ended futility for the moment. The performance by Pablo Lopez on Saturday night was masterful. It was a clinic the young pitcher needed to erase his last outing and show the Mets he wasn’t the pitcher they saw last week.
