Marlins inside the numbers
Courtesy of the Marlins PR department, here’s some interesting facts about the 9-1 start.
At 9-1, Florida has the best start in franchise history through 10 games.
The 1997 Marlins were 8-2. The franchise’s best record thru 11 games was 8-3 (1997, 2004).
The 9-1 start is the Majors’ best start through 10 games since the Yankees and Royals each started 9-1 in 2003. The Yankees lost their 11th game, while the Royals improved to 11-1 before losing their second game.
The Marlins won four-straight to open the season, a franchise-best winning streak to open a season. The current five-game win streak is the team’s longest since winning nine straight Sept. 9-19, 2008. The team has won 12 of their last 14 games, including 10 of the last 11, dating back to last season.
