Double-A LHP Andrew Heaney's scoreless streak snapped Tuesday in no-hit loss

Andrew Heaney has had a spectacular July that was recognized Wednesday when he was named the Marlins' Minor League Pitcher of the Month.

But his 33-inning scoreless streak came to an emphatic halt Tuesday night as did Double A Jacksonville's 11-game winning streak when the Suns were no-hit by Cubs prospect Eric Jokisch.

Heaney gave up three runs on four hits in the first and ended up yielding five earned runs in a start that lasted only three innings. It was the first runs given up by Heaney since June 29.

Second baseman Avery Romero, the Marlins' third-round pick in 2012, was named the Marlins Minor League Player of the Month.

The start of Wednesday's game was delayed due to rain.

INJURY UPDATES

Redmond said first baseman Casey Kotchman, out since June 9 with a strained left oblique, was close to playing some rehab games.
