Gaby begins suspension

Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez, who was in the middle of the benches-clearing altercation with the Nationals on Sept. 1, is beginning his three-game suspension on Friday night at Washington.

Wes Helms is getting the start at first base for Florida in its first meeting with the Nationals since the incident in Miami.

Sanchez was one of the active participants in the altercation as he knocked down Nyjer Morgan, who had charged the mound and thrown a punch at Chris Volstad.

In the seventh inning of the Sept. 1 game, Sanchez was drilled by a Doug Slaten pitch. Slaten received a three-game suspension.

By serving the suspension now, Sanchez will miss all three games at Washington.

Marlins lineup for Friday: Emilio Bonifacio (3B), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Wes Helms (1B), Mike Stanton (RF), Cameron Maybin (CF), Brad Davis (C), Alex Sanabia (P).

Phillies-Marlins lineups Wednesday

The Marlins look to salvage a four-game split on Wednesday night with the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

Andrew Miller gets the nod, while Cole Hamels will start for the Phillies. Hanley Ramirez got the night off.

Ramirez was plunked in the back by a pitch on Monday, and he is a little sore. Nothing serious.

Morrison back in lineup

Considering himself “really lucky,” Logan Morrison was back in the Marlins lineup on Monday in Game 1 of a doubleheader with the Phillies at Citizens Bank.

lomo12.jpgMorrison received a scare and a big bruise under his left eye after being hit in the face by a foul ball off the bat of Emilio Bonifacio in the 10th inning on Sunday.

While standing on deck, Morrison was timing the pitches and simulating a swing when he was struck by the foul ball. Bonifacio ended up hitting a triple, and scoring on Scott Cousins’ pinch-hit walk-off single to beat the Braves, 7-6.

Cousins batted for Morrison, who was tested. An X-ray came back negative, and Morrison passed the vision tests. He also didn’t show any symptoms for a concussion, so he was cleared to play.

“I got really lucky, for sure,” said Morrison on Monday, sporting a big bruise under his left eye. “It looks a lot worse [than it feels].”

Why would the rookie left fielder risk playing now?

“These are important games. I want to be out there if I can,” he said. “I didn’t have any symptoms [for a concussion]. No dizziness. No ringing in the ears. So I was really, really lucky. I probably won’t be standing out there any more.”

Lineup for Monday, Game 1: Emilio Bonifacio (CF), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Gaby Sanchez (1B), Chad Tracy (3B), Mike Stanton (RF), Brad Davis (C), Adalberto Mendez (P).

Uggla out of lineup again

Dan Uggla, nursing a right groin strain, was out of the starting lineup for the second straight day on Tuesday.

The Marlins slugger had played in all of the team’s first 129 games before he was scratched on Monday in a game the Marlins lost 9-3 to the Nationals.

Emilio Bonifacio is filling in for Uggla at second base, while Gaby Sanchez is hitting in the cleanup spot.

Uggla is sitting on 29 homers and he is one shy of becoming the first second baseman in MLB history to post four 30 home run seasons.

MARLINS:

1) Emilio Bonifacio, 2B

2) Logan Morrison, LF

3) Hanley Ramirez, SS

4) Gaby Sanchez, 1B

5) Chad Tracy, 3B

6) Mike Stanton, RF

7) Cameron Maybin, CF

Maybin exits with left groin strain

Marlins center fielder Cameron Maybin, who flinched while taking a swing in the seventh inning on Friday night, was removed during the middle of the at-bat with a left groin strain.

He is listed as day to day.

But after the Marlins beat the Braves, 7-1, Maybin said he expected to be ready for Saturday.

“Two swings in a row, I felt my groin grab a little bit,” Maybin said. “They wanted me to take it easy for precautionary reasons. We’ll see how it feels, and I hope to be back in the lineup tomorrow.”

Maybin was having a strong game against the Braves. He led off with a home run, and he made a terrific diving catch to rob Tommy Hanson in the third inning.

Mike Stanton replaced Maybin, assuming the at-bat against Cristhian Martinez. Stanton swung through strike three, but the strikeout was recorded to Maybin.

In the first inning, Maybin and Logan Morrison became the first pair in Marlins history to belt back-to-back home runs in the team’s first at-bat.

Emilio Bonifacio replaced Maybin in center field, while Stanton remained in the game, moving to right field.

Marlins open crucial series

After taking two of three from the Mets in New York, the Marlins are two games above .500 as they open a three game series at Atlanta.

The Marlins are 8 1/2 in back of the Braves in the NL East, and they’re six games out in the Wild Card chase.

“The way I see it, and pretty much the way the whole team sees it, every game is important to us, regardless of it we play the Braves or any other team,” manager Edwin Rodriguez said. “We had a very good series in New York. I think we have the momentum going our way. This is the time, we’re playing the teams that are ahead of us.

“If we have a very good series here, we’re going to start putting some pressure on the teams above us.”
