Washington Nationals vs Miami Marlinss Match Preview and Free Picks
The Washington Nationals overcame a rare sub-par effort by their ace in the opener of a 10-game road trip, continuing their stellar play away from home and extending their domination of the Miami Marlins. Winners of eight of their last nine on the road, the Nationals go for their 10th straight win over Miami when the three-game series resumes Saturday.
Michael A. Taylor and Matt Adams each belted two-run homers, whiel Bryce Harper added a two-run double as Washington posted a 9-5 victory after blowing a pair of early two-run leads. Sean Doolittle retired the final five batters for his 10th save, pushing his strikeout total to 35 over 22 1/3 innings.
It was a costly defeat for the Marlins, who lost third baseman Martin Prado to a hamstring injury while running out a ground ball. Prado, who had a pair of doubles among three hits before he was hurt, is expected to go on the disabled list, according to Miami manager Don Mattingly.
