A week from tomorrow, the Miami Marlins will be in Jacksonville preparing to face the Suns at Bragan Field.
While the Suns staff is busy preparing for the arrival of the Marlins, the big league club continues rolling along through the Grapefruit League schedule.
Yesterday the Marlins topped the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 in a game that featured a mammoth home run from former Sun Giancarlo Stanton.
This weekend the Marlins will face the Astros in back-to-back games on Friday night and Saturday afternoon, before facing the Nationals on Sunday in Viera.
