In game 2, the Marlins scored early and often as they took a 7-0 lead in the first 2 innings.  The Marlins finished off the Bandits in the 5th with an 11-0 mercy score.  Adam Ashenfarb mowed down the first 9 batters he faced in the 3 innings he pitched.  Andrew DiPiazza pitched the 4th & 5th innings by not giving up a hit in his 2 innings of work.  On offense, the Marlins came out swinging red hot bats.  Lead by home runs from Mike Elfreth, Mike Miraglia (2 bombs), Andrew DiPiazza and Rick Hopkins(walk off).  Also swinging very well, Adam Ashenfarb, Matt Graziano, Troy Sieber, Gregg Pascullo and Paul Balestrieri.
