The Nats for the third time gave up a lead in the ninth inning to lose to the Marlins, 7-4. The Nats had decent outing from Daniel Cabrera. He pitched five innings and gave up two runs. But once again the Nats' bullpen let up the winning runs. Mike Hinckley gave up a homer to Cody Ross in the 8th to tie up the game. The Nats got that run in the bottom of the inning, but only to have Saul Rivera to give up 4 runs in the ninth to lose, 7-4.
The Nats offense was lead by Nick Johnson, Adam Dunn, and Austin Kearns who each had two hits apiece.
Today's box score is the following:
The Nats drop to 1-10 and last place in the National League East.
