The Marlins are finally back on the board.

Giancarlo Stanton hit an RBI double off left-hander Drew Pomeranz in the top of the first inning tonight against the Rockies, snapping a streak of 37 consecutive scoreless innings for the Marlins. It was the team’s first run since Derek Dietrich drove in two runs in the fourth inning on July 14 against the Nationals. The Marlins were shut out in all three games against the Brewers over the weekend.

The Marlins’ scoreless streak was the longest in the majors since the Astros had a 42-inning drought in 1985. As pathetic as the team’s offense has been this season, a trip to Coors Field is just what the doctor ordered.

By the way, Marlins first baseman Logan Morrison has a pretty good line about his team’s futility when asked about Ryan Braun‘s suspension earlier today:

        Tweeter has evolved to where he only has to open his mouth and make sound to tweet his thoughts. Impressive, that.
