The Marlins and Diamondbacks met for the first time this season this Monday night.  Last year, the two teams sat on top of the National league for the entire season and are both off to a strong start this season.  Stephen Surabian was the starting pitcher for the D-Backs while Gavin Flynn started for the Marlins.
 The D-backs scored first when Noah Basgaard drove in  Michael O’Toole and Dominic Biscotti to take the early lead.  The Marlins followed in the bottom of the inning with two runs of their own when Dushyant lined a double to right center field.
 Gavin held the D-Backs to only one run in the second and struck out two.  The Marlins stuck again in the second when Kieren Ghidella and Gavin Flynn both singled and drove in three more runs making the score 5-2.
 Four D-Backs, Michael O’Toole, Stephen Surabian, Noah Basgaard and Noah Johnston all doubled in the top of the third and scored three runs. Raunet Patel drove a deep shot to left field and scored a run to make the score 6-6.
 Raunet Patel came in relief to pitch for the Marlins in the top of the inning and held the D-Backs scoreless while striking out two batters.  Gavin Flynn blasted a line drive double to lead off the bottom of the inning and Dushyant followed him with a two-run home run to right center.
5th and 6th
 Raunet continued his stellar relief as he held the D-Backs without a run for the remainder of the game.  Dushyant hit his second home run of the game to add insurance in the fifth after Kieren and Gavin both singled.  The final score was 11-6.  
 It was another exciting game between the two National league rivals.  The last week of the season, the two teams play their season finale and it will surely be one to watch.
 Great job by both teams!
