Marlins Beat Orioles, Surpass .500 Record

The Florida Marlins beat the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night, pushing their record above .500 for the first time since May 12th. This was the fourth straight win for the team and a part of the greater success that the team has had in recent times.

The Fish are 14-8 in the month of June and are 8-3 in their last 11 games. It's great to know that Florida has gotten their act together, for the most part, and regained their competitive edge in the N.L. East. They now stand two games back from the division leading Philadelphia Phillies and two and a half games back from a Wild Card spot.

The A.L. East match-ups have generally favored the Fish so far and they will finish interleague play with the Tampa Bay Rays in what is called The Citrus Series. Whether they get swept or lose the series, the Fish will leave interleague play with a winning record against the A.L. East.

It seems as though the attention and exposure that the Yankees-Marlins series brought has carried over and given the players some added confidence and the fans something to cheer about. We may be inching closer to the point where it can be said that "The Florida Marlins are officially back."
