Gaby Sanchez vying to finish first half of season with .300 average

Gaby Sanchez (.299), who singled in his first at-bat, entered the game batting .301. He is trying to join Dan Uggla as the only Marlins rookies ever to hit .300 or better in the first half of the season. Uggla batted .307 (94 for 306) before the 2006 All-Star break. Sanchez, Uggla and Alex Gonzalez (99 in 1999) are the only Marlins rookies to total more than 90 first-half hits.
