    • Monday, Sep. 26th-Washington 6, Florida 4

      The Nationals' final road trip of the season takes them to Miami for a 3 game series against the Marlins. The first game starts almost an hour late due to rain and there was some concern about the condition of the field after Sunday's Dolphins game.

      Nationals starter Tommy Milone worked 4.1 innings, giving up 7 hits and 3 runs while walking 1 and striking out 4. The Nationals sent a grand total of 7 pitchers to the mound in the game with Atahualpa Severino earning the win and Henry Rodriguez being awarded his 2nd save of the season.

      For the Marlins, Anibal Sanchez was the starter going 5 innings, giving up 5 hits and 3 runs (2 earned) while walking and striking out 5. Florida used 4 pitchers in the game with Edward Mujica being charged with both a blown save and the loss.

      Extra base hits for Florida come from Omar Infante who tripled and Logan Morrison who doubled and homered.

      For Washington, Ian Desmond doubled and Mike Morse continued his superlative season, hitting home run number 30 when it was needed most-with 2 outs in the top of the 9th and 2 runners on, Washington down 4-3. Morse's blast provided the margin of victory, ensuring that the Nationals would finish in 3rd place in the NL East!

      This is the first time since 1945 that a Washington baseball team has finished this high in the standings. (The 1969 expansion Senators, in their only winning season, finished with a record of 86-76, 4th in the 6 team AL East.)

      Washington 6, Florida 3, WP Atahualpa Severino (Henry Rodriguez, save #2), LP Edward Mujica

      The final line: Nationals 6 runs, 10 hits, 1 error, Marlins 3 runs, 10 hits, 3 errors

      Next game: Tuesday, September 27th vs the Marlins in Florida, game time 7:10PM EDT.

      • Tuesday, Sep. 27th-Marlins 3, Nationals 2

        The Washington Nationals' slim chance for an over .500 season disappear in the bottom of the 9th inning when a 2 out, walk off home run by Bryan Petersen gives the Florida Marlins a 3-2 victory.

        Marlins pitcher Javier Vazquez hurls a 9 inning complete game, giving up 5 hits and 2 runs, striking out 9 and not issuing any walks.

        For the Nationals, John Lannan worked 6 innings, surrendering just 3 hits and 2 runs while walking 3 and striking out 4. The Nationals would summon 4 pitchers to the mound with Doug Slaten being charged with the loss.

        4 of the Marlins 5 hits in the game went for extra bases-Emilio Bonifacio, Matt Dominguez and Mike Stanton all doubled with Petersen's already mentioned homer being the killing blow for the Nationals.

        Washington got a double from Steve Lombardozzi and Mike Morse comes through again with his 31st home run of an outstanding season.

        The final line: Marlins 3 runs, 5 hits, 0 errors, Nationals 2 runs, 5 hits, 0 errors

        • Wednesday, Sep. 28th-Nationals 3, Marlins 1

          The Nationals conclude the season on a winning note, besting the Florida Marlins by the score of 3-1. Stephen Strasburg gets one last start and the win for Washington.

          Strasburg would work 6 innings for Washington, giving up 1 hit and no runs while walking 2 and striking out 10. 5 Washington pitchers entered the game with Drew Storen earning his 43rd save of the season.

          For Florida, Chris Volstad is charged with the loss. Volstad also worked 6 innings giving up 3 hits and 2 runs while walking 2 and striking out 5. Florida used 3 pitchers in the contest.

          There were few extra base hits in the game-Florida's Gaby Sanchez doubled while Alex Cora tripled for Washington.
