Caleb Smith goes 7 innings to help Marlins beat Arizona 11-6

By the second inning, Caleb Smith had infield dirt on his jersey, his knee and the backside of his pants, which is why his third inning of pitching was less than clean.

Smith endured a bad stretch after a baserunning adventure but recovered to pitch seven innings and help the Miami Marlins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-6 Monday.

Smith laid down a bunt in the second and wound up at third base thanks to two errors on the play. The next inning he gave up three hits, including a three-run homer by Ketel Marte, and acknowledged his jaunt on the bases took a toll.

“We need to keep oxygen tanks in the dugout,” Smith joked. “My legs were definitely tired. It took probably two innings to get my legs back under me.”

Remember when pitching for seven innings was the norm, and not something mentioned in sports headlines?
