Trevor Rogers Tames Tigers

The Miami Marlins recorded back-to-back shutout against the Detroit Tigers with a 2-0 win Wednesday afternoon.

The last time the Marlins went with two consecutive shutouts of an opponent was against the New York Mets in the 2019 season. Trevor Rogers took the mound for the Fish looking for his first win of the season. Bryan De La Cruz took some of the pressure off for the lefty pitcher in the top of the first inning. With Jazz Chisholm Jr. on first base, after an infield single, De La Cruz crushed a knuckle-curve 422 feet. That was all Rogers and the bullpen needed for the day.

Rogers allowed only allowed three hits and tallied six strikeouts in his five innings of work. Declan Cronin led the way for the bullpen going for 1.2 innings. Andrew Nardi and Calvin Faucher preserved the shutout for Tanner Scott in the ninth inning. After two quick outs in the ninth, Scott allowed two base hits before striking out Riley Greene to seal the win with his fifth save of the season.

The Marlins are off on Thursday, but are back at it against the New York Mets on Friday at loanDepot Park. First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m., and coverage beginning 6:40 p.m. on Fox Sports 940am, or listen locally on the iHeartRadio App.
