Jake Marisnick plays tremendous defense out in center field.

Jake Marisnick plays tremendous defense out in center field for the Marlins.

Sam Evans ( Baseball Writer and Marlins, Mariners Correspondent):

It’s been almost an entire month since the Miami Marlins called up star prospects Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick from Double-A. Since then, the two outfielders have seen plenty of playing time for the Major League Club.

The two have posted very different and interesting results facing the best pitchers they’ve ever seen.

Both of them have struggled with strikeouts and walks, but Yelich has been able to hit for average and Marisnick has not.

While they both have under 200 combined at bat’s, the Marlins have been able to get a close-up look at both players and start to see how they will fit into their future outfield.

Miguel Cabrera hit a walk off homer in a critical divisional showdown for the Tigers against the Royals. He also had an RBI double in Deroit’s 6-5 victory.

John Lackey  quieted the Yankees bats while pitching into the 7th inning. He let up a single run and got the 6-1 win for the Red Sox.

Martin Prado helped the Diamondbacks keep pace in the playoff hunt by collecting 4 hits including a 3 run homer and beating Pittsburgh 15-5.

Clayton Kershaw beat the Phillies in just about ever way possible. He dominated on the mound with 8 shutout 3 hit innings, striking out 8 and walking just one. With the bat, he smacked an RBI double, extending the Dodgers winning streak to 10 games, 5-0 over the Phillies.

They all owned baseball on August 17, 2013.
