Confusion today regarding different roster moves ended with Jefry Rodriguez making the start instead of Milone, but the right-hander gave the Nats a decent start: 5 Innings, 5 hits, 2 runs (both earned), 3 walks, and 3 K’s.
Derek Dietrich struck first with a MOONSHOT (his 15th) in the Top of the 2nd.
Trea responded with his 15th #dinger of the season as well
We hadn’t seen Tim Collins since the St. Louis series, but he had a short and sweet appearance in this one: one batter, one K.
Davey looked to fireballer Jimmy Cordero in the 6th in a 2-2 game, he struck out Dean with the bases loaded before giving up a two RBI single to JT Riddle #natskiller. Also of note: Murph with a HUGE error on an easy double play ball. This team loves to make big mistakes.
Quick shout-out to Krystal Koons. She’s still causing young Nats MASN watchers nightmares every game
Matty Adams stepped into the box with bases loaded and 0 outs in the bottom of the 7th and was so intimidating that the Marlins reliever Guerrero physically threw up via wild pitch and got a run in before popping up to the infield.
Trea with a dink and dunk to centerfield and the game was all tied up at 4-4.
Riddle struck again in the 9th, as he finished his day with:
RBI Double in the 5th
2 RBI Single in the 6th
Solo homer in the 9th
Adam Eaton (Spanky per his player’s weekend jersey) hit a #dinger solo shot in the 9th to tie the game back up.
In extra innings Koda faced bases loaded with two outs…and gave up a two run RBI single to .250 Isaac Galloway…
Nothing doing in the 10th as the Marlins shut the door and handed the Nats the loss.
1:35PM tomorrow, Urena (3-12 4.74 ERA) vs. Gio Gonzalez (7-9 4.12 ERA)
