The Brewers defeated the Marlins 1-0 in 13 innings this afternoon, shutting the Marlins out in all three games of the series in Milwaukee. Caleb Gindl hit a walk-off home run, the first of his career. The Brew Crew defeated the Fish 2-0 on Friday and 6-0 last night as the Marlins have now failed to score a run since the fourth inning on July 14 against the Nationals, a streak of 37 consecutive scoreless innings. It is the longest consecutive scoreless innings streak since the Astros in 1985, according to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post.

The Marlins and Brewers are the National League’s two worst teams. The Marlins began the series at 35-58 with a -91 run differential and the Brewers 38-56 with a -65 run differential.

Now headed to Colorado for a four-game set against the Rockies, the Marlins will look to snap their offensive drought in baseball’s most hitter-friendly ballpark.

    “..rest of his career..”

    Kinda selling the guy short after his first bomb.

      ha, that not intended. I meant “first”.

        Just giving ya some shit. Certainly not a big deal.

        Please point out my typos. Usually after I post an article I start working on the next one, so I tend not to spot them until someone points them out.

      I assume that eventually he will get around to correcting the typo.

    That last game is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an unmovable object.

    Tino Martinez must feel like he’s been messing with Sasquatch. The Feesh all look like Pedro Serrano trying to hit a curveball with a curtainrod. Unwatchable. Thank Buddha I haven’t had time to watch more than a few innings all weekend – and they all looked alike.

    See, Scrooge – this is what your cheapskate budget buys you.

    37 innings? How do you not score in 37 innings? You can score a run by accident (see the Mariners)!

      Here’s how: you have an impecunious crook for an owner. You backload contracts and unload everyone who’s any good as soon as it come time to pay them. It’s not rocket science.

        That being said Mr Gator all they needed was 1 run. I love trashing Loria myself, but today they actually didn’t play bad. Loria does suck a ton of cock though for sure so I don’t begrudge you the argument.

      • Old Gator - Jul 22, 2013 at 6:27 AM

        By not playing bad, I gather you mean they didn’t boot the ball all over the field. Re-run the game and look at the swings they were taking. Cliff Floyd, who has been doing some color commentary for the Feesh, said it best on a Marcell Ozuna strikeout at a pitch in his eyes: when you’re panicking, you will swing at that last pitch of the count no matter where it is.

    if only the marlins had someone like Hanley Ramirez on their team… he’s batting .391 so far this year since coming off the DL to start the season.

    • Old Gator - Jul 22, 2013 at 6:29 AM

      Hanley’s hobbit finally made it up Mount Doom with that accursed .342 amulet during the orfseason. There is no other possible explanation.

        Now there is a metaphor I can get behind, Gator.
