Marlins finally get a win from a starter

BY foxsports • May 9, 2009

Ricky Nolasco got the Florida Marlins' starting pitchers back into the win column.

Settling down after a shaky beginning, Nolasco earned the first win by a Florida starter in more than three weeks, leading the Marlins to an 8-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night.

The Marlins went a club-record 20 games without a win by a starting pitcher before Nolasco (2-3) scattered eight hits over six innings with five strikeouts and a walk in his first victory since opening day. He allowed three runs to become the first Marlins starter to earn a victory since April 16 when Anibal Sanchez beat Atlanta.
