Jose Fernandez Grounds Out Weakly; Mom And Grandma Laugh At Him

Jose Fernandez is your Marlins Opening Day starter. He's a great, young pitcher who, according to Eduardo Perez, also thinks he's a great, young hitter. Perez said during the broadcast that he considers himself a cleanup hitter. So far, through four scoreless innings against the Rockies, he's given up four hits and struck out seven. He also was laughed at by his mom and grandmother after his first at-bat.

In the bottom of the third, Fernandez got jammed on a 1-1 count and awkwardly hit a weak dribbler to second. Both his mom and grandmother, who've probably also heard about what a great hitter he is, could only laugh.
