The Nats could not make it two in a row. The Nats had a 2-1 lead on the Marlins heading into the 9th inning, but Joel Hanrahan gave up a tying homer to Cody Ross. The Fish would then score again in the 10th inning to beat the Nats 3-2.
John Lannan by far had his best game of the year. He only gave up one run in his 6 1/3 innings pitched. Julian Tavarez, Mike Hinckly, and Joel Biemel then set up the game in the 7th and 8th inning for Hanrahan in the 9th. Saul Rivera gave up the winning run in the 10th.
The Nats offense was lead by Alberto Gonzalez with three hits. But he could not come up with another hit in the 10th to tie the game with two outs and a runner on on second base.
Yesterday's box score is the following:
The Nats dropped to 1-8 and stay in last place of the National League East.
The Nats next game is today versus the Marlins at Nationals Park. The game starts at 1:05pm. It is Scott Olsen versus the Marlins' Josh Johnson.
