World Cup fever at Marlins Park
MIAMI — Henderson Alvarez is on a hot streak, going 4-1 with a 1.79 ERA in his last 10 starts.
The Marlins also have won eight straight of Alvarez’s starts dating back to May 16.
The Venezuelan native is a terrific all-around athlete, and on Friday afternoon he put his soccer skills to the test prior to batting practice on Friday afternoon at Marlins Park.
Alvarez, Marcell Ozuna and Adeiny Hechavarria kicked the soccer ball around in the outfield for a few minutes.
