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).

Gaby in lineup Friday

On a day he was suspended for three games by Major League Baseball, Gaby Sanchez was back in the Marlins lineup on Friday in the series opener with the Braves.

Sanchez is appealing his three-game penalty levied by MLB on Friday. Sanchez was involved in the melee with the Nationals on Wednesday night.

Friday also marked the return of Dan Uggla to the starting lineup. Uggla missed three straight games due to a strained right groin.

The Marlins on Friday also announced they selected the contracts of outfielder Scott Cousins and reliever Chris Leroux from Triple-A New Orleans.

Here’s the Marlins lineup for Friday: Cameron Maybin (CF), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Gaby Sanchez (1B), Chad Tracy (3B), Mike Stanton (RF), Brad Davis (C), Andrew Miller (P).

Youthful lineup prevails

Featuring one of their most inexperienced lineups in years, the Marlins were able to pull out a dramatic walk-off, 1-0, victory over the Nationals on Tuesday night at Sun Life Stadium.

Florida started four rookies and had six players total with less than three years of MLB service time. In fact, those six players — Cameron Maybin, Emilio Bonifacio, Gaby Sanchez, Mike Stanton, Logan Morrison and Brett Hayes — combined to have 671 games of big league experience.

H2Rslide.jpgBy comparison, Hanley Ramirez, who is 26-years-old, was playing in his 745th MLB game.

Ramirez took over the game in the 10th inning. First, in the top of the inning, the three-time All-Star made a heads-up play to throw out Nyjer Morgan at home plate.

With two on and one out, Adam Kennedy bounced to Bonifacio at second base. The flip went to Ramirez for the force out at second. Had Ramirez attempted to complete the double play at first, Kennedy would have been safe.

Ramirez held the ball and saw Morgan never stopped running when he rounded third. The throw went home, and Hayes no sooner caught the ball before he was charged into by Morgan. Hayes held on for the out, but in the process injured his left shoulder.

In the 10th, Ramirez took over. He singled, stole second and scored with a great slide on Chad Tracy’s single to left. Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez felt Ramirez was out, and he argued with home plate umpire Jim Wolf. After seeing the replay, Rodriguez apologized to the umpire, noting the call was correct, capping an entertaining night.

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

8) Brett Hayes, C

9) Anibal Sanchez, P

Hanley back, Uggla ailing

A day after leaving the game due to dizziness, Hanley Ramirez is back in the Marlins lineup on Monday against the Nationals at Sun Life Stadium.

But late in the afternoon, the team announced Dan Uggla would not play due to a strained right groin.

Uggla was initially in the lineup, but was replaced at second base by Emilio Bonifacio.

Manager Edwin Rodriguez says Uggla is day-to-day, but chances are he could missed at least another game or two in the series.

“When you’re talking about a leg injury, it’s hard for me to believe,” Rodriguez said of a player missing just one game.

Uggla noted some soreness after Sunday’s game in Atlanta.

Cameron Maybin also is starting in center field, after sitting out on Sunday at Atlanta. Maybin had a mild left groin strain on Saturday.

Alex Sanabia gets the start for Florida, while Washington is going with Jason Marquis.

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.
