The Marlins moved into a tie of second place with their victory over the Nats on Monday. Hanley Ramirez, Logan Morrison, and Giancarlo Stanton all had solid nights for an offense that scored 5 runs on 9 hits. Carlos Zambrano earned the win on the mound and the home team will send Anibal Sanchez to the hill tonight. The righty has struck out 62 batters in 59 innings and has a great ERA of 2.87 to show for it.
The Nationals seemed to show the effects last night of playing a game on late Sunday night and they were not able to muster much offensively. Jordan Zimmerman took the loss allowing 4 earned runs in 8 innings of work. Edwin Jackson, who is winless in his last 7 starts, will get the ball tonight for the Nats. He has only allowed 47 hits in 58 innings and has a quality 3.38 ERA.
Miami is 19-8 in their last 27 games overall, 4-9 in their last 13 game against the N.L. East, and 1-4 in Sanchez’s last five starts.
