The Marlins miss a great opportunity


The Miami Marlins had a great opportunity to beat one of major league baseball's best teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers, on Monday at LoanDepot Park, but they missed their chance in the 10th inning and went rather downgraded 3 to 2.

Tied 2 to 2 after regulation innings, the visitors initially took the lead. Then, in their turn at bat, the crowd favorites managed to load the bases when there was only one out, but Garrett Cooper and Jacob Stallings were unable to create the Minimum tie in order to continue the game.

In the loss, Quebecer Charles Leblanc hit a ball to the safe and received a free pass, but he was unable to produce one of his team's two points.

It was Brian Anderson and Lewin Diaz who produced the points for the winners. On the visitors' side, Will Smith homered two runs and Freddie Freeman drove in the game-winning run.

Bradley Zimmer back

Before their against the Chicago Cubs, the Toronto Blue Jays repatriated outfielder Bradley Zimmer, whose name was on waivers by the Philadelphia Phillies.

The 27-year-old had played 77 games with the formation of the Queen City earlier this season. The Toronto club had lost his services to the Phillies, via waivers, on August 18.

A poor hitter, Zimmer was mainly used as a backup on defense and as a backup runner for the Jays in 2022. At plate, he averaged .130 in 92 appearances this season.

Before joining the Blues Jays, the California native played five seasons with the Cleveland team.
