Marlins jump in Clevelander pool after snapping losing streak
Miami defeated Baltimore to snap an eight-game losing streak late Saturday night on a Martin Prado walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the 13th inning.It was the first win for the Marlins under new skipper Dan Jennings, who transitioned from the front office to the dugout last Monday after the firing of Mike Redmond. So ... uh ... pool party, anyone?

That’s in the Clevelander at Marlins Park, a South Beach-themed bar located just beyond the left-field fence. Jennings was out there with his players, so this was obviously manager-approved. Proper supervision at the pool is important. “It’s the best, dirtiest bath I’ve ever had,” Jennings told reporters after the game.
The Dodgers got into a bit of hot water -- pun intended -- for jumping into the pool at Arizona’s Chase Field after clinching the National League West title back in 2013. But maybe this is cool because it was done in the Marlins’ own stadium? Surely somebody out there has the energy to produce a scathing take.
