Bullpen sets record
History was made, but not extended for Florida’s bullpen on Sunday afternoon.
In the Marlins’ dramatic 7-4 victory over the Nationals, the bullpen extended its scoreless-innings streak to 24 straight innings, which establishes a franchise record.
Twice before the pen had logged 23 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.
But as soon as the record was set, the streak snapped in the following frame. Leo Nunez in the bottom of the eighth inning allowed one run. At the time, it put the Nationals ahead 4-3.
