Marlins take one of two games of double header in DC
- Updated: August 4, 2012
Brad Hand won’t try to remember this game as he got pounded in Miami’s 7 to 4 loss to Washington.
The Marlins were on the board quickly when Carlos Lee grounded into a double play with zero outs but a run would manage to score.
Brad Hand looked very nevious in his first start for the Miami Marlins this year. Hand went 3.2 innings with six walks, three strike outs and seven earned runs. Also, he gave up a solo home run to Adam LaRoche.
The only good thing about this game is that Jose Reyes extended his hitting streak to twenty-one games.
Ryan Webb and Chris Hatcher both were scoreless in their relief.
The Miami Marlins reduced the lead in the top of the seventh inning when Austin Kearns scored on a wild pitch by John Lannan and a RBI single by Brett Hayes that scored Ruggiano. But that wasn’t enough to beat the Nationals as the Marlins fall seven to four in Washington.
Josh Johnson struck out nine; Jose Reyes extended his hitting streak
Miami Marlins’ shortstop Jose Reyes expanded his hitting streak to twenty two games with a bunt single in the first inning.
Reyes is only eleven game shy of tying Luis Castillo, who holds the longest hitting streak for a Marlin at thirty-three games.
The spotlight wasn’t just for Reyes, it was mostly for Marlins’ ace Josh Johnson. Johnson struck out nine batters in 8.2 innings and he only gave up two runs (one earned run).
Also, Josh Johnson is the first Marlins starter to record 21 outs since Anibal Sanchez on July 22 at Pittsburgh.
Not only Josh Johnson had an excellent start but he began a rally with a base hit in the sixth. A few batters later, Carlos Lee hit a clutch two run single and Greg Dobbs got a RBI single. The were now winning three to one.
Miami would later score two runs in the eighth and ninth inning.
Josh Johnson almost had the complete game but Ozzie decided to go with Steve Cishek to get the final out, which he did.
Miami defeated Washington five to two at Nationals Park.
