MLBSaturday in the Majors was an attendance love-fest. Six sellouts, plus the highest attended game in PNC Park history.

Too bad it didn’t last.

Ballparks across the majors will filled to 68 percent of capacity, compared to 74 percent the Sunday prior.

There were 3 sellouts, but two were expected (Giants have sold out every home game this season, and Red Sox) with the Angels being the lone sellout that was good news for the club (two days in a row).

Five clubs were filled to 50 percent or lower. The Marlins have the dubious distinction (again) of having the lowest attended game of the day (13,208) or just 36 percent of capacity. Guess fans just aren’t interested in kissing Joe Robbie/Land Shark Lager/Sun Life Stadium off in its baseball swan song year.

Here’s the breakdown for Sunday, along with each of the day’s promotions:
