Marlins Conclude a Successful Season with 6 Straight Wins
The Marlins finished the 2000 Season with a 6-game winning streak and an overal record of 79-82. The 2000 season was the third best in team history following the 1997 (92-70) and the 1996 season (80-82). The 15-win improvement from last season combined with the previous 10-win improvement made the Marlins the first team in 60 years to post back-to-back seasons with a 10+ win improvement. Preston Wilson was the Major League’s only 30-30 man and broke the team record with 121 RBIs. Three other Marlins hit more than 20 homeruns as the Marlins set a new team record for homeruns in a season. Luis Castillo broke a team record with a league leading 62 stolen bases. Antonio Alfonseca won the National League Rolaids Relief Award with a Major League leading 45 saves. That total tied Bryan Harvey’s team record from 1993.
