MarlinsNation is bringing you a little something different – The Swim. In this feature, we will bring you snippets of what is going on around the organization in a one-stop-shop of sorts.
Last night for AA Carolina, Josh Willingham went 2-4 with 2 RBI and was hit by a pitch. Hopefully, it wasn’t in the lower back.
Renteria gets 2000th Hit
The ex-Marlin, best known for his slick glove and his Game 7 World Series hit, got his 2000th hit of his major league career. Most likely, he will not end up in the hall of fame for his major league career, but he as put together one heck of a portfolio as a big leaguer. Proud to have had him start out as a Marlin.
All Star Game Sees Much Hop
The Hoppers were well represented at the 49th Annual South Atlantic League All Star Game. Representing the North Division, some Hoppers helped bring home the victory – A.J. Battisto, Corey Madden and Garrett Parcell all saw action in the game. Battisto pitched in the second inning and Madden faced two batters striking out both. Parcell finished the game by striking out the last batter faced which closed out the win. Yet it was Mike Stanton’s performance in the home run derby that was impressing everyone, however he eventually lost out to Hagerstown’s Michael Burgess.
