Ricky Doesn’t Care Where You Went to College.

ricky nolasco.jpgThere are really only two words necessary to describe the Marlins Sunday afternoon series finale against Pittsburgh.

But, just in case you were hoping for something a little more extensive than that, the following completely unnecessary words are here for your reading pleasure:
If there were any lingering doubts as to whether Ricky was really “back” after his early-season struggles, the pitcher obliterated them when he took the mound Sunday afternoon at Land Shark Stadium. Ricky struck out twelve, allowed no runs and just three hits over eight innings, earning his fourth consecutive win and contributing to the idea that a Princeton education means precisely jack when it comes to pitching.
The Marlins bats, meanwhile, decided to exact a little revenge on Ivy Leaguer Ross Ohlendorf, who pitched seven shutout innings against them in April in the series HLD&S likes to refer to as “the beginning of the end.” The Marlins managed eight hits and five runs off of The Dorf, even without Ramirez in the lineup (Hanley’s hip hurt).
In other completely unexpected and/or shocking news, the announcement came during the game that Hanley Ramirez and Josh Johnson are All-Stars
After taking two out of three from the Pirates, the Marlins are three games over .500, just one game behind the Phillies, and looking forward to two long months before they’re once again forced to don those hideous red hats. Ahhh, life is good.
