Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich put up the first run of the ball game in the top of the first inning with a solo home run to center field.
Yelich has been hot at the plate as of late for the...

Andres Salgado is a seriously devoted Miami Marlins fan. When pitching sensation Jose Fernandez suffered an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery, Salgado vowed not to cut his hair until the 22-year-old recovered. So he let it grow for 13 months.
