Marlins win 17-inning thriller on Miguel Rojas hit

Marlins win 17-inning thriller on Miguel Rojas hit

The Miami Marlins outlasted the Chicago Cubs, 2-1, in 17 innings Friday night behind a walk-off single from Miguel Rojas at Marlins Park. He came home on a ground out by Justin Bour, and the Marlins got another run later in the inning when Schwarber slid and missed a hit to left by Brian Anderson. An hour after the season-opening home run, Cerami made the plunge into the crisp water. The Cubs had their southpaw's back though as Willson Contreras hit an RBI double and Kyle Schwarber recorded his first home run in the 7th inning. "It just felt really good".

Both teams wore patches to honor those killed, and Rizzo plans to host four families of the victims at Friday's game.

Happ gave the Cubs the fast start they sought. A pair of three-run rallies helped Chicago overcome a rocky start by Jon Lester, who lasted only 3 1-3 innings. They're eager to replicate the quick getaway in 2016 that helped propel them to their first World Series title in 108 years.

Orioles 3, Twins 2 • Adam Jones homered on Fernando Rodney's first pitch starting the bottom of the 11th, and Baltimore beat Minnesota for its eighth consecutive opening day victory. But a lively crowd of 32,151 on a mild, sun-splashed afternoon - with the retractable roof open - hinted at the franchise's potential if Jeter can build a victor. Tommy La Stella got the Cubs some insurance runs with a two-run double to give the Cubbies an 8-4 lead. Lester finished the game with only 3.1 innings pitched, seven hits, three earned runs and only two strikeouts as well. "I wasn't throwing strikes, I wasn't finishing guys, I had no breaking ball".

Six minutes later and one pitch into the season, Happ sent a Jose Urena deep to right field for a home run.

Giants 1, Dodgers 0 • Joe Panik homered off Clayton Kershaw in the fifth inning and San Francisco beat host Los Angeles, dealing the three-time NL Cy Young victor his first loss in his franchise-record eighth consecutive opening start.

The Cubs have now improve to 80-61 on opening day in their history and for the first time won an opener in the month of March.
