Marlis Grand Slam Win After Trailing to Livan

Down 0-4 to the Livan Hernandez and the San Francisco Giants, Mike Lowell hit an 8th inning Grand Slam off former Marlin John Johnstone and Dave Berg drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth (of Robb Nen) as the Marlins recorded their 4th consecutive victory, 5-4. Lowell’s Slam was on of 5 this evening, a new Major League Record.

Only Minor Deal at Trade Deadline

Alex Fernandez was not traded at the deadline, instead the team settled on a minor move, acquiring minor league pitcher Mike Drumright from the Detroit Tigers for Brandon Villafuerte. Drumright was assigned to AAA and added to the 40 man roster. Archie Corbin was designated for assignment and Rafael Medina was recalled (for the fourth time) to take Corbin’s spot on the major league roster. Corbin has since been assigned to AAA.
