Miami Marlins vs Washington Nationals Match Preview and Free Picks
Mark Reynolds was passed over by every other major league team this spring but is rewarding the Washington Nationals in record-setting ways. One day after going 5-for-5 with two home runs and 10 RBIs, the veteran first baseman concludes his memorable weekend Sunday when the Nationals aim for a sweep of their four-game series against the visiting Miami Marlins.
Reynolds crushed a walk-off home run in Friday’s 3-2 victory before delivering the ultimate encore in Saturday’s 18-4 victory, helping Washington post its 14th consecutive victory over Miami and its third in a row overall following a 5-17 slide. Reynolds’ 10 RBIs tied Anthony Rendon’s club record set last season and came two days after Trea Turner had eight RBIs in Thursday’s series-opening 14-12 victory.
Miami fell 19 games under .500 with Saturday’s loss but hit back-to-back homers for the first time this season when Starlin Castro and J.T. Realmuto went deep in the fourth inning. The Marlins have had a dismal trip to the nation's capital, but utilityman Yadiel Rivera belted his first career homer in Saturday's contest and Castro is 13-for-24 during a six-game hitting streak.
