Ryan Zimmerman renames Marlins venue Sun Life Stadiu; Nats win 9-3

After lengthy delay, Nationals beat Marlins, 9-3
Sloppy conditions, clean performance
When I saw the twitpics of the standing water at Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Dolphin/Dolphins/Land Shark/SunLife Stadium last night, I went to bed assured that the Washington Nationals would be playing in a doubleheader today against the Florida Marlins. I was kind of looking forward to it actually.

It did not work out that way.

But it did work out.

Playing in conditions better fit for water-skiing than baseball, the Nats pounded the Marlins 9-3. Ryan Zimmerman hit a 3-run homer that broke the scoreboard Nationals Enquirer. The “m” in SunLife Stadium was a casualty, so from this point on, we’re calling it SunLife Stadiu. Adam Dunn homered for the 33rd time as well, 3 run shot to left-center.


Jason Marquis
continued his climb to mediocrity, winning his first game for D.C. in eight decisions. His ERA has plummeted to 8.13.

Game changer indeed

The Nats have won 4 out of 5.
