Jesus Luzardo Picks up 2nd Win in 3 Starts With Marlins
Jesus Luzardo

By: Matt Rothman

It hasn’t been the prettiest of starts for Miami Marlins Jesus Luzardo; however, the former Marjory Stoneman Douglas pitcher picked up his second win in three appearances.

While he allowed three runs in his first start in five innings in his debut against the New York Mets, Luzardo earned the win. Then, after picking up a loss in his next start, the hard-throwing lefty earned his second win of the season after pitching against the Chicago Cubs. 

Luzardo also reached base for the first time in his MLB career Friday night after walking in the fourth inning. The Marlins went on to win 14-10, while he picked up his seventh career win in the big leagues. However, he has walked 11 batters since returning home.

“I just think it’s more of me trying to be too fine,” he said. “I was beat by the home run a lot earlier in the year, and I feel like it maybe got in my head a little bit and made me a little more tentative. After the second inning, I kind of just forgot about that and said, ‘I’m just going to go be aggressive.”

Up next, Luzardo is scheduled to start on Wednesday, August 18, when Miami takes on the red-hot Atlanta Braves in the final game of a three-game series.
