The 'Posse was held scoreless once again in the bottom of the sixth. The Marlins continued their offensive dominance with solo home runs from Kwodwo Branningan and Hill in the top of the seventh inning.
Raymond Smith got the lost for the 'Posse as Lewis picked up the victory for the Marlins. "We go them right where we want them." the Marlins catcher Michael Bute noted. "We're going for the sweep" Bute added. For the Marlins, Maduro was perfect in four plate appearances.
