Box Score Bytes - Game 42

- One of the more beautiful baseball websites and a great little online magazine

- Before tonight, Nicasio had a 1.31 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings pitched on the road this season.  Of course tonight he goes 5 IP and gives up 5 earned runs.

- All I have to say is there ought to be a bat burning or an exorcism or something because really this isn't funny anymore.  It's like a snowball just getting bigger and bigger.  Two more errors tonight, another poor starter outing, and even more scarier is that the Marlins left 13 men on base!

- Thanks go to Belisle with a strikeout with the bases loaded.  That was a big boy pitch.

- What did the Rox do to anger the baseball gods so?  Did someone blow off the unwritten rules of baseball?  Can we get a do over?  A May rewind?

- Sixth loss in a row worse start since 1995.  Please make it stop...

- Although really this one was on us.  To be down by one run in the ninth with a lead off double and CarGo, Tulo, and Helton all get retired without getting in the tying run?  Yup that 2012 Rox baseball in a nutshell!
