JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Miami Marlins left-hander Andrew McKirahan needed only 12 pitches to strike out all three batters he faced Tuesday and help beat the University of Miami 7-1.
McKirahan, a Rule 5 acquisition from the Cubs, was one of nine pitchers for Miami. They combined on a six-hitter with one walk.
Slugger Giancarlo Stanton sat out, but the team went mostly with the lineup expected to open the season. Newcomer Martin Prado had a single and a walk, while most of the starters had only one plate appearance.
