Emilio Bonifacio Batting .800 for the Marlins
Emilio Bonifacio, write that name down you might be hearing it quite often on this blog. The Marlins 2nd Baseman had the best day of his young Career yesterday . Bonifacio singled, stole a base and scored in the first, then did it again in the third. But his best moment came with a runner on in the fourth, when he drove Jesus Tavarez’s 3-2 pitch to deep center. Lastings Milledge retreated and dove but failed to come up with the ball, and Bonifacio flew around the bases and slid home ahead of the throw for an inside the park Home Run.
Check out this great video recap
This was the first on opening day sense 1968.Bonifacio joined Florida with a reputation as a slick-fielding but light-hitting speedster. It turned out he’s fast enough to create his first Homer of his career.
At the end of the day he was 4-5 with 4 runs scored 2 stolen bases and 2 RBI’s. I would say he had a good day.
He wasn’t the only one as Hanley Ramirez’ added a Grand Salomi and Jorge Cantu a two run shot in what would be a 12-6 Win for the Fish.
