Jean Segura breaks up no-hitter, Marlins sweep Red Sox

by admin

BOSTON — With arguably the biggest series of the 2023 season less than 24 hours away, the Marlins went from being no-hit through seven innings to sweeping the Red Sox in Thursday night’s 2-0 win at Fenway Park.

The Marlins have won five in a row and are 14 games over .500 (48-34) for the first time since 2003 – the same season they won their second World Series.

Jean Segura broke up Brayan Bello’s no-no with an infield hit to open the eighth and Joey Wendle followed with a single to right that chased Bello with runners at the corners. Jon Berti drove in the game’s first run with an RBI single to center and Jazz Chisholm Jr. tacked on an insurance run in the ninth with a solo shot off Kenley Jansen. Chisholm has gone deep in two of three games since his return from the injured list.

Southpaw Jesús Luzardo kept up his end of a pitchers’ duel, going 6 1/3 scoreless innings. Six days after pitching into the eighth for the first time in his career, he permitted just three hits. When he gave up back-to-back knocks in the seventh to Rafael Devers and Adam Duvall, Andrew Nardi recorded the next two outs to keep it a scoreless deadlock.

Miami now ventures to Atlanta, the National League East’s division leader. The Marlins have dropped six of seven to the Braves this season, having been outscored 54-22. Miami has a zero run differential this year; excluding its games against Atlanta, it’s a +32 differential against everyone else.
