Marlins' Jose Urena: Throws six shutout innings in Sunday win
Urena (1-0) earned his first victory of the season with six shutout innings Sunday against the Mets, allowing just one hit and one walk with two strikeouts.
Urena, who was called upon to make his first start of the season, was in complete control from the start and lost his bid for a no-hitter when Rene Rivera singled to lead off the fifth inning. He needed an economical 63 pitches to complete six frames and was in the strike zone at a respectable 62 percent clip. It is unclear what Urena's role will be moving forward, as he has been valuable to the club as a long reliever, but he could be a boon to a lackluster starting rotation if he could continue to deliver anything close to this type of outing.
