At last, the Marlins brought their colorful home run sculpture to life. They did it twice on Sunday, creating a big splash at Marlins Park.
But the decisive moment of an 11-inning marathon was decided the old fashion way.
Hanley Ramirez, who blasted a two-run homer to tie it in the eighth, delivered a walk-off single in the 11th inning to vault the Marlins to a 5-4 win over the Astros.
Ramirez enjoyed a four-hit game and provided the Marlins with their second walk-off victory in the series. According to Elias, the Marlins are the first team to have its first two wins in its new ballpark be in walk-off fashion since the 1995 Rockies.
