STAT OF THE DAY (AUGUST 19 vs. TEX)

The Marlins’ first run tonight against Texas will be their 500th of the season in game 125. They’ll be the 6th NL team to reach 500 runs this season after managing a total of only 513 runs in 162 games in 2013, when they ranked last in Baseball in runs scored and virtually every other offensive category.

The Marlins Sunday exploded for 10 runs on 12 hits in their 10-3 win that gave them 3 out of 4 from the Diamondbacks. It was the first time in 78 games the Marlins had scored 10 or more runs, having last turned the trick May 21 vs. Philadelphia.

The Marlins will hope to keep the offense clicking along as they play their next 5 games against Texas and Colorado, who, respectively, rank 29th and 30th in MLB in team ERA. The Rangers are last in the AL at 4.79, while Colorado brings up the rear in the NL at 4.98.

The Rockies have allowed a big league-high 652 runs, while the Rangers have allowed the 2nd-most runs in baseball, most in the AL, at 629.

Opponents hit a major league-high .280 against Texas pitching and an NL-high .277 against Colorado.

STAT OF THE DAY (AUGUST 17 vs. ARI)

Last night’s 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks marked the 22nd time this season the Marlins have won a game when scoring 3 runs or fewer, most in the major leagues.

The Braves are 2nd with 19 wins when scoring 3 or fewer, while the Mariners and Orioles have won 17.

The 22 wins with 3 runs or fewer match a Marlins single-season club high, established in 2013.
