So what's the story again with the 03 Marlins in Boston? Didn't they get blown out one day then came back with a big win the next and many called it a turning point in their season? I honestly never remember the details on that one.

We were 40-40 when we went to Boston. Lost the first game 25-8, won the next game 10-9 and finished the season 91-71. And you know the rest.

Payback! Marlins rally from seven runs down

Jun 28, 2003

 

BOSTON (AP) -- The Florida Marlins didn't just go back to their
hotel and stew about Boston's record-setting blowout. They did
something about it.

Mike Lowell hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning Saturday
night as Florida rallied from a seven-run deficit to beat Boston
10-9. It was the biggest comeback victory in franchise history, and
it came one day after the Red Sox scored 14 in the first inning --
and kept scoring from there, much to the Marlins' disgust.

"We were embarrassed last night," said Florida manager Jack
McKeon, who complained that Boston showed the Marlins up in
Friday's 25-8 win. "This takes a little of the taste out of our
mouth. They were very jubilant last night. They woke us up."

Boston had another big inning Saturday, scoring seven in the
sixth to take a 9-2 lead. But Juan Encarnacion hit a three-run
homer as the Marlins scored four in the eighth, then they scored
four more in the ninth.

"We set a lot of records the last two nights, didn't we,"
McKeon said with a chuckle. "You can pop off all you want. You've
got to back it up."

Nate Bump earned the win in his major league debut after being
called up from Triple-A Albuquerque earlier in the day. He allowed
two runs on three hits in 2 1-3 innings as the Marlins crossed the
halfway point of the season by improving to .500.

"It was my first game, so I was nervous," said Bump, who
didn't really retire a batter in the sixth -- the third out came on
the basepaths -- but followed that with two scoreless innings. "I
wouldn't want it to be any different than it was tonight."

Braden Looper pitched the ninth for his 14th save. Pinch-hitter
Jason Varitek doubled with one out, but he was doubled up for the
game's final out when Juan Pierre made a diving catch of Johnny
Damon's liner and threw it to second.

"I just screwed up," Varitek said. "My instincts were that I
had to go right away in order to score on the ball. I was wrong."

Brandon Lyon (3-4) blew his first save in 10 opportunities,
giving up three singles -- including an RBI hit by Ivan Rodriguez --
before Lowell hit an 0-2 pitch into the Boston bullpen with two
outs in the ninth.

It was Rodriguez's fifth consecutive multihit game.

Gabe Kapler was 4-for-5 in his Boston debut, driving in three
runs in the sixth as Boston scored at least seven runs in an inning
for the third time in four days.

Nomar Garciaparra hit a two-run homer in the fourth and added a
two-run double in the sixth to make it 6-2 and chase Tommy Phelps.

Pierre had four hits, a walk and two stolen bases for Florida.

Kapler, released by Colorado on June 19, signed with the Red Sox
on Tuesday and went to the minors to play himself into shape. He
went 3-for-6 in two minor league games and showed no rust when he
arrived at Fenway on Saturday, either.

He doubled in the third, singled in the fourth and tripled in
the first run in the sixth to break a 2-2 tie. Kapler doubled in
two more when he came up for a second time in the sixth, then
struck out in his last at-bat, in the eighth.

Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield left with a 9-6 lead in the eighth
after giving up Encarnacion's homer.

 

After that game the Marlins were 41-41 on the season. And after that finished 50-30 the rest of the way..

I’m not sure why Yamamoto was the first choice back. What has he done this year that really indicated this guy needs to be on the team in any position? I know the team is on the win now mode but theirs decision such as this that makes me wonder what they are thinking 

I'd only assume that it was between Yamamoto and Dugger for the mop up role and Dugger already blew that chance a few times so they just gave Yamamoto the next chance.
