Jose Fernandez does it all for Marlins

Fernandez went 2-for-2 and scored a run while also tossing seven shutout innings on Wednesday. It was the second time that Fernandez has had two hits and a run on offense while not allowing a run on the mound; he also did that against the Mets on June 1, 2013. The only other Marlins pitcher with more than one such game is Dontrelle Willis, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.
