Martin gazing at the rain, a disgusted Jason Bergmann kicks a wall moments after throwing his glove, moments after being pulled off the field in the 9th for yet another rain delay at Land Shark Stadium. The good news is, the umps finally called it off about an hour later.)
"Before the first rain delay, it was fine. But after we came back from the rain delay, we just got drenched. It was tough. But that's the game. No excuses. I just wish we got the full nine innings in."

5 hours and 37 minutes of rain delays over 2 days.
3:03 in delays Sunday + 2:34 delay Saturday = a lot of ESPN News on MASN.
Marlins 11, Nats 3 (Saturday): Let's never speak of Marco Estrada's first Major League start again, okay? And Logan Kensing still stinks. Silver linings provided courtesy of Justin Maxwell (2 HRs) and Ian Desmond (4-4).
