The Marlins scored first again on Friday and, again, lost. This time it was closer, 3–2 after Mark Reynolds smashed a walk-off solo shot in the bottom of the ninth inning for Washington.
Miami lost several games by a lot of runs early on but not only have the Marlins won a lot more lately, but they are losing by closer scores, too. If you take a look at their bar graph at Baseball-Reference, the improvement is evident.
Trevor Richards has shown some moxy for a rookie starter. He hasn’t cruised through any one outing yet but he’s battled to limit the damage in just about every one. At this point in his career, that may be the more telling ability in a young pitcher.
So Washington won its second consecutive game while Atlanta lost for the second straight night. That means Washington has crept to within five games in the NL East with a whole lot of baseball yet to be played.
Gio Gonzalez battled on Friday but he still only got through five innings. The bullpen had to have been gassed but four different relievers did a great job to come in and keep it close enough for Reynolds to win it in the ninth.
Tanner Roark is 0–4 in his last five starts and he is coming off of nine earned runs allowed against Boston his last time out. He did, however, throw seven one-run innings against the Marlins back in May.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction: over.
The Nationals’ offense is starting to roll but I don’t trust Roark, nor his bullpen if he isn’t able to get very deep into this game. This feels set up for both teams to plate four, five, or more runs.
