Marlins Beat Orioles 6-0

Marlins pitchers combine for a 2 hit shutout in Friday's victory

March 5, 2004
Jupiter, FL
Pitcher Brad Penny threw 3 perfect innings leading the Marlins to a 6-0 victory. Penny went into the game wanting to work on his off-speed stuff. Whatever he was working on seemed to be effective as 26 of his 42 pitches on the day were strikes. Penny was pleased with his performance but still feels that he needs to work on becoming comfortable with his off-speed pitches.
"The first inning I felt great." Penny said after the game. "I threw a changeup and a couple of good breaking balls." "I got up in the zone later, I need to work on keeping the ball down." Im just trying to get a feel for my change, right now I don't have a feel for it. It's sailing on me. I'll work on that next time."
Penny wasn't the only pitching star for the Marlins on Friday. Four Marlin pitchers yielded only 2 hits to the Baltimore Orioles.
Offensively, the Marlins stars were Luis Castillo and Miguel Cabrera who each had RBI doubles. The top three Marlin hitters; Juan Pierre, Castillo, and Cabrera combined for 7 hits and 5 RBIs.
