The Marlins were defeated by the Dodgers once again in Los Angeles on Saturday night, this time 8-2. The Dodgers put up 16 hits against the Marlins' pitching staff, while Miami recorded only three hits of its own.
Jose Reyes put the Marlins on the board in the first inning when he grounded out but scored Gorkys Hernandez to give Miami an early 1-0 lead. But that was before the Dodgers, stacked with talent after the blockbuster trade with the Red Sox, stepped to the plate.
Luis Cruz hit an RBI double before Adrian Gonzalez blasted a three-run homer in his first at-bat as a Dodger. Mark Ellis and Andre Eithier also homered in this game.
The only other run for the Marlins came on a solo shot by Giancarlo Stanton in the second inning.
