Marlins 7, Dodgers 6

Crazy day here, sorry it took me so long to post. Other than Tommy’s return to managing — which didn’t make it past the second inning before he came out to argue a call, eliciting the biggest cheer of the day from the crowd — the biggest thing that happened today was that Rafael Furcal went 3 for 4 with two singles, a triple, two runs scored and two RBI. But the second biggest thing that happened was that Blake DeWitt, who was promoted to big-league camp after LaRoche and Nomar got hurt, went 2 for 3 with a double, a HR and a walk. He is now 3 for 10 in the Grapefruit League. Hong-Chih Kuo pitched a perfect inning, striking out two. Dodgers blew a 5-3 lead in a four-run Marlins seventh in which a key play was an infield single by Hanley Ramirez. The ball was a little tapper to the right of the mound, but when the ever-expanding Yhency Brazoban went to get it, he couldn’t bend over to pick it up, and it trickled past him. Honeycutt said after the game that Brazo is working hard to get his weight down, doing a lot of cardio and stuff like that. But it’s conceivable that an inability to field his position could cost him a spot on the team. … Dodgers fall to 6-7-1. Home against the Nats tomorrow
