Fish Farm Report: June 25th


William Cuevas tosses a gem, and Marlins affiliated ballclubs post a 3-3 record in action on Sunday. Transactions The Hammerheads activated 1B Brad Haynal from the temporarily inactive list, and RHP Garrett Cortright was assigned to Greensboro from Jupiter. The Grasshoppers placed RHP Ryley MacEachern on the seven-day DL. C Michael Hernandez was assigned to the GCL Marlins. Triple-A Pacific Coast League New Orleans Baby Cakes 7, Colorado Springs Sky Sox 1 William Cuevas (1-0, 0.00) continues to dazzle at the triple-A level with the Baby Cakes (28-47), throwing six innings of one-hit shutout ball and earning a 7-1 win over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox (43-30). Opposing batters are hitting just .114 against him since he joined New Orleans, and he has struck out 12 in 10 2⁄3 innings, including five today. 4,214 were in attendance at Shrine on Airline to witness Cuevas’ mastery, and Odrisamer Despaigne earned his second save with the club, striking out two in three innings while allowing one run on three hits and a walk. The contest was scoreless until the bottom of the fifth, when Peter Mooney hit a two-RBI-triple and scored a moment later on an error by opposing catcher Andrew Susac. The Baby Cakes made it 4-0 in the next inning, on a Mike Aviles sacrifice fly. Matt Juengel (5) made it 7-0 in the eighth on a three-run shot to left field. The Sky Sox prevented the shutout with two outs in the ninth, scoring a run on a Brett Phillips RBI-groundout. Mooney added two singles to his hit total for the game, raising his average to .186.

Giancarlo Stanton will defend his HR Derby Crown



The slugger will compete in the 2017 contest at Marlins Park.

For the second straight year, Giancarlo Stanton will compete in the event that centers around what he does best: crush massive homers.

Stanton announced on Twitter Sunday that he would compete in the 2017 Home Run Derby on July 10 during the All-Star Game festivities at Marlins Park.

That towering home run off John Lackey was his 19th on the season and the only run the Marlins would need.

Just for good measure, the Marlins tacked on an insurance run in the sixth inning. Dee Gordon led off the inning with a single, advanced to third base thanks to a stolen base and a throwing error, before Christian Yelich sent him home on a sac fly to center. That stolen base was his 28th of the season. Two runs won’t be enough on most nights, but Urena and the pen took care of business tonight.

Kyle Barraclough, David Phelps, and A.J. Ramos each threw a scoreless inning of relief to shut the door. Nice and easy. Don’t you love it when the bullpen doesn’t implode?

The Cubs actually doubled the Marlins hit total on the evening (6 to 3). Stanton had two hits and Gordon had the other. Yelich and Justin Bour were the only others to reach base via the walk. That was it. Five baserunners. I guess the pitching owed the offense a pick-me-up one of these days.
