Marlins outscore Rangers 22-10, set franchise record for runs

Marlins outscore Rangers 22-10, set franchise record for runs”

"In the fourth, I gave them easy pitches and they kept turning them into hits", said Darvish, who had been looking forward to facing the Marlins' Ichiro Suzuki. He is 5-1 with a 1.49 ERA over his last seven starts.

The Marlins sent 13 batters to the plate and finished with 15 total bases in that inning and had eight hits - also a season-high for an inning. The first four Marlins reached on two doubles and two singles before Darvish recorded his first out of the inning. J.T. Realmuto greeted reliever Jeremy Jeffress with a two-run homer that scored Ozuna, the last batter faced by Darvish, whose five consecutive losses over his last eight starts mark the longest losing streak in his career.

Four days before the trading deadline in what could be his last start for the Rangers, Darvish (6-9), who will become a free agent at the end of the season, allowed nine hits, including a pair of home runs in the first inning, and walked two while striking out five. The Marlins led 11-1 before the top of the 4th was over. But he only allowed four earned runs that night. "I'm going to try to make excuses because of all the trade talk that's going on and just forget about it, and maybe it didn't happen", he joked. Davis promptly ejected Beltre and moments later, Rangers manager Jeff Banister after he came out to argue. "If you go look at the video, and look at all the hitters around there, they stand in a very similar spot". "The man's chasing 3,000, our fans stuck around to see that last at-bat, they didn't get to see it".

The 4-hour, 2-minute game featured a nine-run fourth inning by the Marlins, a five-run eighth and a four-run ninth with that last set of runs coming off reserve catcher Brett Nicholas, who pitched for the first time in his career.

In San Francisco, Brandon Belt hit a tiebreaking double in the seventh against Tony Watson (5-3) on a routine fly that left fielder Starling Marte had trouble seeing because of sun and wind. His three extra-base hits moved him past Dave Winfield into 21st place all-time.

In the bottom half of that inning, reliever Drew Steckenrider noted to the umpire that he felt Adrian Beltre was inching closer to the plate from the on-deck circle.

Rangers: Before a weekend series at home against Baltimore, the Rangers have a day off Thursday.
