Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Miami Marlins pitcher and former Washington State Cougar Adam Conley made his first appearance since being placed on the disabled list on August 15 in a very emotional start against the New York Mets on Monday. Conley was activated Monday after a short stint away with tendinitis in a finger on his left hand.

In Conley's return he pitched 3 scoreless innings allowing 2 hits and striking out 2 while walking one in his spot start that ended with a no decision. The Marlins scored all 7 of their runs in those three innings as Miami closed out an emotional game winning 7-3.

Early Sunday Morning the Marlins organization announced that 24 year old pitcher Jose Fernandez was killed in a tragic boating accident. Their game later that day was canceled. Fernandez was slated to make his final start of the regular season on Monday.

The former Cougar tweeted out a photo of him and Fernandez from their time on the Greensboro Grasshoppers team back in 2012.
