Box Score: Marlins 3, Indians 2

The Indians four-game winning streak was snapped on Friday night in an interleague opening loss to the Miami Marlins. The Fish took the one-run lead in the 8th without getting a hit. Bryan Petersen drew a lead-off walk against Tony Sipp and was sacrificed over to second by Jose Reyes. He advanced to third on a throwing error by Joe Smith, and was then knocked in on a Hanley Ramirez sacrifice fly. That was enough for the Marlins, who clinched the series opening 3-2 win.

    Well the fans finally showed up…but the team didn’t!….I guess at this point I’d rather have 15k in the stands and win, than have 30k and lose.

    Joe Smith throws like a dickhead. Hate him.
