Weathers Shines, But Bullpen Nearly Squanders Lead in 6-3 Win



Ryan Weathers tossed a gem for the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, leading them to a 6-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Weathers struck out a career-high 10 batters, while allowing just two runs on five hits in six innings. The win improves his record to 2-1 and lowers his ERA to a respectable 2.70. After a rough 2023, Weathers has been a bright spot for Miami early this season.

However, the win wasn't without its scares. Miami's bullpen, which has struggled all year, nearly squandered the lead. Burch Smith walked a tightrope in his brief 0.1 inning outing before Calvin Faucher came on to clean things up. Tanner Scott secured the save in the ninth, but his inning included two walks, giving the Giants a chance to rally. While Smith and Scott ultimately allowed just one run combined, their outings could have easily gone south.

Offensively, the Marlins scattered eight hits, including three doubles. Josh Bell, Luis Arraez, and Bryan De La Cruz all had two-baggers in the win. Arraez's double was part of a two-hit performance that also included two RBIs.

Miami was aggressive on the basepaths, swiping three steals. Jesus Sanchez, Emmanuel Rivera, and Bryan De La Cruz each had a stolen base.

The Marlins look to clinch the series win on Wednesday when they host the Giants again at 12:10 PM.

Who is Calvin Faucher?


I'm legitimately asking - I've never heard of this guy until now.
