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.

Great American Ball Park

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.
