The Washington Nationals fell to the Miami Marlins 9-3 Saturday night. Here's the latest Nationals and Marlins news:
Max Scherzer took the loss against the Marlins Saturday, allowing 11 hits and seven runs (six earned) over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out nine and walked none, but gave up too many hard hits in the loss.
First baseman Matt Adams drove in two early runs and had a multi-hit day, filling in well for Ryan Zimmerman. He has been a bright spot off the bench for the offense.
Third baseman Anthony Rendon saw his hitting streak snap after going 0-for-1. He was hit by a pitch on his left elbow in his second plate appearance and left the game shortly thereafter. His status is considered day-to-day.
Infielder Brian Anderson stayed hot, going 2-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI. He also walked twice and scored two runs. His RBI hit started the scoring for the Marlins in the first inning.
Infielder Starlin Castro went 2-for-5 with 2 RBI in the win, with both RBI singles coming off Nationals ace Max Scherzer. He also stole his first base of the season.
Outfielder Curtis Granderson had two hits, including a home run, in Saturday's 9-3 win. His homer gave the Marlins a 4-3 lead they would not relinquish, and he helped add insurance runs with his sacrifice fly later in the game.
