I got this press release from FSN today:

 

FOX SPORTS FLORIDA TO AIR SELECT MARLINS

ENCORE GAMES FROM 2008 SEASON

 

 

 

SUNRISE ? Fox Sports Florida will re-air select Florida Marlins games from this past season, allowing fans to relive eight of the most exciting games as they anxiously await the start of the upcoming 2009 Major League Baseball season. Encore games are scheduled to air on FS Florida alternating Wednesday afternoons at 12 noon.

 

 

From impressive come-from-behind wins, walk-off thrillers, Major League record breaking performances, and late historic feats, the Marlins 2008 season will be one to remember. Led by manager Fredi Gonzalez, the team slugged their way into a contended playoff race in the National League.

 

 

 

UGGLA & HENDRICKSON GET FISH BACK ON TRACK

 

Airdate: Nov. 26, 2008 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Padres at Marlins, on May 2, 2008

 

A great outing by Mark Hendrickson and two big home runs from Dan Uggla helped the Marlins beat the Padres 6-4; getting the Fish back on track with a win after they lost three in a row to the Dodgers. It was Hendrickson?s fifth win of the season and Uggla?s fifth and sixth home run of the season.

 

 

 

MARLINS BREAK BRANDON WEBB?S 10-GAME STREAK

 

Airdate: Dec. 10, 2008 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Diamondbacks at Marlins on May 21, 2008

 

The Marlins pulled out an impressive win and broke Arizona?s starting pitcher Brandon Webb?s 9-0 record. Webb was trying to win his first 10 starts of the season, something that had not been done since 1919. Ricky Nolasco out pitched Webb with the Fish playing great defense in a 3-1 win. Nolasco was backed by Cody Ross' solo home run, Matt Treanor's suicide squeeze, and Luis Gonzalez's RBI single.

 

 

 

CODY ROSS CRANKS WALK-OFF

 

Airdate: Dec. 24, 2008 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Reds at Marlins on June 7, 2008

 

The Marlins refused to surrender to the Cincinnati Reds as they came from behind in the ninth to win a thriller. Center fielder Cody Ross slammed a two-run homer off Francisco Cordero that gave the Marlins a walk-off 8-7 victory.

 

 

 

UGGLA SLAMS DOOR ON THE PHILS

 

Airdate: Jan. 7, 2009 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Phillies at Marlins on June 11, 2008

 

In what could have been a tough loss, Dan Uggla came through big, launching a walk-off grand slam as the Marlins took their second straight from the Phils. Jorge Cantu went deep twice and lefty Andrew Miller turned in a stellar start.

 

 

 

MARLINS CLOSER NOTCHES SAVE

 

Airdate: Jan. 21, 2009 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Cubs at Marlins on August 16, 2008

 

Marlins closer Kevin Gregg notched the save in the middle game, capping off 3 2/3 scoreless innings by the Florida bullpen. In front of 39,124 gathered at Dolphin Stadium, the Marlins bullpen secured a one-run lead against the dangerous Chicago Cubs batters.

 

 

 

NOLASCO ENDS MAJOR LEAGUE RECORD STREAK

 

Airdate: Feb. 4, 2009 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Marlins at Giants on August 19, 2008

 

The Marlins had gone 301 games without their starting pitcher hurling a complete game. Ricky Nolasco ended that Major League-record streak, allowing just two hits in tossing his first career shutout. For good measure, Nolasco added a two-run double in the three-run fifth. The right-handed pitcher retired 21 straight batters and secured the Marlins first complete game since Sept. 16, 2006.

 

 

MARLINS OUTSLUG PHILS

 

Airdate: Feb. 18, 2009 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Phillies at Marlins on September, 19, 2008

 

A five-run first inning, coupled with a six-run fifth, propelled the red-hot Marlins to their ninth straight win in a slugfest with the Phils. Dan Uggla ripped a two-run shot, Alfredo Amezaga drilled a three-run dinger and Mike Jacobs drove in four runs as the Marlins secure the 14-8 win over the intra-division rival.

 

 

 

SHEA NO MORE

 

Airdate: Mar. 4, 2009 at 12 noon

 

Game Date: Marlins at Mets on September 28, 2008

 

Wes Helms' pinch-hit solo shot in the eighth inning would put Florida ahead for good after the game stayed tied, and Dan Uggla followed that with an insurance homer as the Marlins ended the Mets' season for the second consecutive year. 56,059 fans witnessed the back-to-back home runs that lifted the Marlins to a 4-2 win over the Mets in final game ever to be played at Shea Stadium.

 

Schedule subject to change.
