After a disappointing opening series with the Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals bounced back to sweep the Miami Marlins.
Stephen Strasburg strikes out 12 and Ian Desmond hits and 8th inning grand slam in a 7-1 rout. Jayson Werth’s homer in the third was the difference.
Jordan Zimmermann has a terrible start, doesn’t complete 2 innings, but the Nats come back on Bryce Harper’s 3 run blast. Werth hits a grand slam in the 8th after Anthony Rendon gets walked in front of him. 10-7 win
Gio Gonzalez is sharp and the Nats shutout the Marlins, 5-0.
The Nats are 7-2 and go to Atlanta for a big series with the Braves.
