Marlins 5, Nationals 4
The Marlins complete the sweep of the Nationals in Washington with a 5-4 Sunday afternoon victory.
A 7 inning, 5 hit, 2 run effort by Shawn Hill is wasted as Luis Ayala gives up 3 runs in the top of the 8th for the loss.
Scott Olsen started for the Marlins pitching 6 innings and giving up 4 runs. Logan Kensing gets the win, his record now 2-0 and Kevin Gregg gets his 7th save.
Offense for the Nationals comes from a Jesus Flores double, Aaron Boone who tripled and homered and a Ronnie Belliard homer.
However, that was overcome by 3 Marlins homers, 2 from Dan Uggla and the ultimate game winner from Jeremy Hermida off Luis Ayala in the top of the 8th inning.
Nationals record: 15-23
Current streak: 3 losses
Next game: Monday, May 12th in New York vs. the Mets at 7:10PM EDT (if the monsoon now hitting the east coast lets up)
