MLB Game Summary - Cleveland at Miami



(Friday, August 2nd)

Final Score: Miami 10, Cleveland 0

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Jose Fernandez struck out a career-high 14 batters over eight scoreless innings as the Miami Marlins pounded the Cleveland Indians, 10-0, in the opener of a three-game interleague set.

Fernandez (8-5) scattered three hits and walked just one batter to pick up his third straight win. The 21-year-old rookie became the first pitcher to strike out at least 13 batters in consecutive games since 2004 and the first rookie to accomplish the feat since Kerry Wood in 1998.

"I really try to make good pitches. I don't go out there and try to strike out more than I did last time, I don't really think about that. I just try to go out there and do what I have to do to get the win," said Fernandez.

Logan Morrison drove in four runs and finished a homer shy of the cycle. Donovan Solano had two RBI, while Adeiny Hechavarria and Jake Marisnick each had three hits and an RBI for the Marlins, winners in three straight.

Ubaldo Jimenez (8-6) was tagged for five runs -- two earned -- on nine hits over four innings to absorb the loss.

Cleveland had an eight-game winning streak snapped.

Miami jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first. With two on and one out, Morrison laced a double to left field to score Ed Lucas. Solano followed with a ground out to first, but it was enough to score Giancarlo Stanton. Hechavarria capped the inning with an RBI single.

"I had problems locating the fastball. I think after that first inning I got a little worn down, I threw too many pitches that inning," said Jimenez.

The Marlins added one run in both the second and third innings to make it a five-run game.

In the second, Christian Yelich tripled then scored on a Morrison single to center.

Fernandez's sacrifice fly in the third scored Marisnick to give Miami a 5-0 lead.

Miami put the game out of reach with a five-run eighth inning. With two on and one out, Lucas grounded into a force out, but it scored Juan Pierre. After Stanton singled, Morrison smoked a triple to right to push a pair of runs across. Solano followed with an RBI single before coming around on a Marisnick base hit.
