A collection of lasts

The last of 19 seasons for the Florida Marlins, and the last of 19 major league baseball seasons played at Sun Life Stadium concluded Wednesday night. With the closing of a baseball stadium, there are always a collection of coveted “lasts” fans want to know.

So let’s get started with the basic lasts at Sun Life Stadium:

Last game) Wednesday, September 28, 2011. Washington Nationals @ Florida Marlins. Nationals won 3-1

Last starting pitchers) Stephen Strasburg vs. Chris Volstad (received last win and loss respectively)

Last pitch) 1-2 slider clocked at 89 mph: thrown by Drew Storen (to earn last save) to strike out Logan Morrison looking

Last hit) Roger Bernadina: rbi single to right field in the top of the eighth

Last home run) Bryan Petersen (9.27.11): line drive home run to right field in the bottom of the ninth. This was also the last walk off home run at Sun Life

Last strikeout) Logan Morrison looking in the bottom of the ninth (Drew Storen)

Last walk) Logan Morrison in the bottom of the seventh off Ryan Mattheus

Last double) Gaby Sanchez (rbi) in the bottom of the 7th off Ryan Mattheus

Last triple) Alex Cora top of the eighth off Ryan Webb

Last run) Alex Cora in the top of the eighth on Roger Bernadina’s rbi single

That’s all for now. The Florida Marlins become the Miami Marlins on November 11.
