Marlins Vs. Dodgers: Miami Seeking Series Win On Sunday

The Miami Marlins conclude their series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday afternoon. After dropping the first game and winning on Saturday night, the Marlins have a chance to take the series with a win.

Marlins Vs. Dodgers Score Update: Miami Down 1-0 After Four Innings

With just one hit, the Miami Marlins trail the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score of 1-0 following four innings at Marlins Park.

The lone run of the contest came during the top of the fourth when Shane Victorino grounded into a fielder's choice that allowed Joe Blanton to score and give L.A. a narrow one-run edge.

Otherwise, in spite of its ho-hum offensive performance thus far, Marlins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco has kept them close. The right-hander from Corona, Calif., facing his hometown team, has surrendered seven hits but given up one just hit and struck out one.

The Dodgers took the first game of the teams' weekend series on Friday by a final of 5-2.

Dodgers Vs. Marlins Recap: Hanley Ramirez Has A Big Night In Return To Miami

On Friday night, Hanley Ramirez made his first appearance at Marlins Park in a uniform other than Miami's, and he put together a three for five night against his former team. Ramirez scored a run and drove in two others as the Los Angeles Dodgers opened the weekend series with a 5-2 victory.

Miami starter Mark Buerhle was cruising against the Dodgers until he hit a rough spot in the top of the sixth. Los Angeles strung together four hits and put a four-spot up on the board to take a three-run lead they would never relinquish. Buerhle worked quickly, as he always does, striking out five and ending his night after the four-run sixth.

On offense, the Fish were quiet against ace Clayton Kershaw, who struck out seven while giving up just two earned runs. Kershaw allowed only three Miami hits and the LA bullpen locked up the win with the three-run cushion. A Justin Ruggiano homer in the bottom of the first was the only blemish until Carlos Lee brought home Gorkys Hernandez with a sac fly in the sixth.

Ricky Nolasco will face Joe Blanton on Saturday and try to even the series up.
