The bobblehead caught my attention. However, after the game, I could not find the coveted item after being blinded by the bling.
The Miami Marlins handed out a limited (but unspecified) number of Pitbull bobbleheads before their game on July 29th hosting the Washington Nationals to celebrate “305 Day” at Marlins Park.
Jose Urena and three relievers combined on a two-hitter for the Miami Marlins in a 5-0 win over the Washington Nationals on Sunday to split a four-game series.
Miami was outscored 19-4 losing the first two games before limiting the Nationals to one run on seven hits in the final two games.
It was four months since Urena started for the Marlins on Opening Day, he picked up his first victory at Marlins Park since September 20, 2017. Urena was winless at home in his 13 previous home starts and had gone 0-8 over that span with a 4.65 ERA.
“He had good stuff today, aggressive,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “It is kind of good to see the old Jose out there.”
The Pitbull bobblehead has an audio function with recordings from Mr. 305 himself. But it was Urena who was given the “MVP chain” after the win though.
More on my first interaction with the chain soon.
Miami plated three runs in the fifth on a base hit by Martin Prado, an error by Daniel Murphy, and a double by Miguel Rojas to push the lead to 5-0.
It was the fifth time this season the Nationals have been held to two hits, a season-low. The last was on June 25 at Tampa Bay.
