Miami Marlins make team and league history with dominant win on Friday

The Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets 8-0 on Friday night at LoanDepot Park.

For the Marlins, the win brought their season mark to 14-32. The loss dropped the Mets to 20-24.

The Marlins are one of the saddest stories in baseball this season after making the playoffs in 2023. In Miami, his promising rotation has been decimated by injuries, with Sandy Alcantara and Eury Perez out for the year due to Tommy John surgery. Edward Cabrera, Jesus Luzardo and Braxton Garrett were also on the injured list for a long time.

Luzardo was dominant again on Friday, throwing six shutout innings with seven strikeouts. He is now 1-3 a year.

It was the third shutout in a row for Miami, which made team and league history several times.

According to MLB.com's Sarah Langs on social media:

The Marlins have thrown 3 shutouts in a row, tied for the longest streak in franchise history, with:

17th–19th August 2005
13th-15th April 2004

And according to @OptaSTATS on social media:

The Marlins became the first team in MLB history to post a winning percentage below .300 in at least 25 games in a season and then post three consecutive shutouts.

The Marlins will get a chance for a fourth straight shutout on Saturday afternoon when they face the Mets again. First pitch is scheduled for 4:10 p.m. ET, when Luis Severino gets the ball for New York against Garrett.

Severino is 2-2 with a 3.00 ERA while Garrett is 0-0 with an 8.44 ERA.
