The Marlins complete the first quarter of the season. Five figures who stand out from the era

With their 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, the Marlins officially surpassed the quarter-season mark.

They are 20–21 after 41 games and third in their division in the National League, a half-game behind the Philadelphia Phillies and third in the wild-card race.

Here are five eye-opening statistics from the first 41 meetings.

4.74 starting pitching ERA: The rotation was supposed to be the backbone of Miami this year, as it has been in recent seasons.

Instead, the group is well below league average. His earned run average ranks 17th in the majors, while his 203 innings pitched is the sixth fewest in the league.

With two Opening Day starters, Johnny Cueto (right biceps) and Trevor Rogers (left biceps), the rest of the pitchers in the rotation have disappointed, including ace and NL Cy Young Award winner Sandy Alcantara. (4.91 ERA in 51 1/3 innings).

12-1 in one-run games: The Marlins set a major league record by winning their first 12 games this season, which was set by a run to open the season. He broke the 11-game mark of the 1972 Mets.

Last year, Miami went 24-40 in one-run games.

Marlins general manager Kim Ng said, “I believe the players can perform better than last year in critical conditions.”

“I think it’s contagious. I think it’s the new guys we brought in, I think they’re growing up. I also think the bullpen has done a good job. I think manager Skip Those two things, combined with Shumaker making some nice moves with the bullpen, allowed us to get that record.”

7-6 in the series: The Marlins have won more series than they have drawn, and four of the six they have lost have come against the Mets and Braves.

They have one series sweep (Chicago Cubs at home) and have been swept once (Braves at LonDepot Park).

They have won seven series: the Minnesota Twins at home, the Philadelphia Phillies on the road, the Arizona Diamondbacks (twice, once at home and once on the road), the San Francisco Giants at home, the Cleveland Guardians on the road, and the Cubs at home.

Two series that were not lost by either the Braves or the Mets: the Cubs on the road and the Reds at home.

3.44 runs per game: While on paper the Marlins have improved their lineup with a combination of Luis Arraz, Jean Segura and Yuli Gurriel, as well as better production from a healthy Jorge Soler, the team continues to score the second fewest runs in baseball.

They accumulated only 12 games where they scored at least five runs and 13 games in which they scored two or fewer.

That, along with seven blowout losses, adds to Miami’s 56 run differential, which is the worst in the National League, even though Miami is only one game less than .500.

.382 batting average: It’s not as good a number as it was a week and a half ago, when it stood at .437, but Marlins second baseman Arraz is still 36 points ahead of the fastest hitter with a .382 batting average. Behind, Ronald Acuña Jr. of the Braves, with a .346.

Arraz has recorded at least one hit in 30 of 35 starts this year.
