Nationals defeat Marlins 7-5: Recap 6/26/19

The Nationals beat the Marlins 7-5 tonight, as Patrick Corbin threw seven innings, gave up three hits and one run, walked one, and struck out nine.

Corbin also reached the 1,000 career strikeout milestone, which happened to be the night’s first strikeout from Cesar Puello.

The Nationals’ scoring began in the sixth inning via Anthony Rendon’s RBI single that scored Trea Turner. In that same inning, Matt Adams hit a three-run home run. The ninth inning proved to be busy (and lifesaving) when Yan Gomes scored on Tayron Guerrero’s wild pitch; Rendon’s sacrifice fly scored Gerardo Parra; and Trea Turner’s scored on a passed ball by Bryan Holaday.

After Corbin was pulled, Wander Suero entered in the eighth inning and threw a clean inning, striking out Curtis Granderson and JT Riddle before Miguel Rojas flew out to Victor Robles. During the ninth inning, when Javy Guerra replaced Suero, the Marlins attempted a last-moment rally. After Guerra gave up two walks, two hits, and four runs, Sean Doolittle replaced him. Despite giving up an RBI single to Holaday and even a triple from Granderson, Doolittle stayed strong and earned his seventeenth save.

The Nationals have now won the series and maintain a 39-40 record – just one game under .500. Tomorrow, they hope to have a sweep with Stephen Strasburg as the starter.
