This is the kind of game you get when you have a potentially generation-to-generation young talent that fits your team: unbelievable highs, moments of intense frustration, and frankly, a fair amount of bullshit.
4 2⁄3 Baseball innings without hits, four walks and the end of a 17+ innings streak free.

He was initially picked and the first functional 450-foot homer after nearly a month of playing.
The highs and lows of the prospective firms were big across six tours in Miami.
Gilbert started with his usual first-round variance, sending Jorge Soler and Avicel Garcia with harmless matches on their first pitches, but issued a full number of walks to Jesus Sanchez and Jarrett Cooper – including this 11-court fight to Sanchez.
He made it through the second, third and fourth rounds without much trouble and with relative efficiency, but then gave up back-to-back singles.
Everyone’s favorite butter maker eventually escaped the inning unscathed after hitting Jorge Soler’s beauty with an 87 MPH slider.
Seattle took a 2-0 lead in sixth, but no one who watched his last week in baseball was satisfied with such a narrow lead. With two wins, captain GB Crawford doubled to center field and then Don Mattingly made a fateful mistake. He had Miami ace Sandy Alcantara purposely walk Abraham Toro to face Julio Rodriguez.
Strategically speaking, it made a lot of sense. Julio clashed with some in his first debut season, while Alcantara was the star of the Miami team. They’ve already got two, what else could one cost, without? Unfortunately for the Marlins, however, their reconnaissance report on Julio appears to have missed an important detail: Julio Rodriguez is a player who supernaturally fuels people’s doubts about his abilities.
Alcántara tackled three straight slides to the Novice, then tried to run 97 mph after him in the inner corner. “Try” is the operative word.
With the new Julio-ed cushion, Gilbert came out strong at the bottom of sixth with back-to-back strikes by Sanchez and Garcia, but the precise control he exercised against these two disappeared long enough for Brian Anderson to overpower Homer. The slider hung hopelessly. They pulled him off with 102 throws to start, and while Gilbert gave us very little to complain about with his performances this season, these are my smallest dribbles: He throws a lot of pitches to skip some of those roles. There’s no need to play with your food before you eat it, Logan. You are better than that.
Following Gilbert’s exit, the quartet of Eric Swanson, Andres Muñoz, Drew Steeckenrider and Matt Vista got together for 3 1⁄3 Roles of relatively low pressure relief. And Jesse Winker, in his quirky, quirky way, provided some extra breathing room with a two-round single in the middle that saw him knocked out in second place. Despite the awful baseball game they played last week, the pair managed to escape from Florida without drifting off and head to Houston to frolic under Crawford’s boxes.
“But Isabelle, wait!” Might remind me of my older brothers. “Crawford presented himself as well – his fourth of the season. Winker ruled himself having that double play in the first half and hit three hits a day. Swanson continued his goalless streak. Come on, you can’t just focus on the brilliant guys!”
I say it’s Game 22. There’s plenty of time for everyone to have their heroic moments, but today they are the little ones. Moreover, I know my audience.
