Marlins 5, Twins 4

The Twins scored four runs in the fourth, but single runs for the Marlins in the fifth and sixth pushed the home Fish past Minnesota, 5-4.


  • Denard Span walked and rapped two singles in three trips to the plate. He is now hitting .600 this spring. Denard Span is a MAN who built the WHEEL OUT OF BRAWN.
  • Jason Kubel hit a three-run home run, going 1-4 for the day.
  • Wilson Ramos had a pair of doubles, one of them an RBI double.
  • Anthony Swarzak struck out all three batters he faced.
  • Kyle Waldrop pitched a scoreless inning.


  • Francisco Liriano struck out six in three innings and didn't walk anyone, but also gave up three runs including a two-run homer. He also struck out at the plate, and left four guys on base. (Not that anyone really cares about his hitting.)
  • Brian Duensing gave up two runs, but struck out three in two innings of work.


  • Matt Tolbert was 0-2, struck out, and is still in search of his first spring hit. At this point, if he's on the Opening Day roster, we will have conclusive proof that he has compromising photos of Gardy.
