Reds park has been big headache for Marlins
CINCINNATI — Great American Ball Park has not be so great for the Marlins.
The home of the Reds, which opened in 2003, has been especially unkind to the Marlins.
After losing 4-0 on Thursday afternoon, the Marlins fell to 5-14 in their last 19 games at Great American Ball Park.
While it’s a hitters’ park, Miami is batting .241 and averaging 3.83 runs in their last 18 games (2007-today) at Cincinnati.
What’s really hurt the Marlins at Great American Ball Park is their pitching.
Since 2007, the Marlins have a collective 5.83 ERA and are 4-14 mark. Cincinnati is hitting .281 facing Marlins pitching in that span.
On a couple of occasions, the Marlins held leads in the late innings, only to watch them disappear. Twice the team has blown saves in the difficult stretch.
