Recap: Marlins @ Nationals Game 1
- Updated: September 8, 2012
Marlins defeated the Nationals nine to seven in extra innings.
Jacob Turner had another quality start as he threw six innings and gave up two runs on four hits with three strikeouts.
The Marlins pounded Stephan Strasburg as they scored six runs in four innings courtesy of a RBI doubled by Giancarlo Stanton; a sacrifice fly of Carlos Lee; a solo homer from Rob Brantly; a solo blast by Stanton to right center; a RBI single of Donovan Solano to right; a triple from Jose Reyes to deep left center.
The score was six to two, through four innings.
So the Marlins were winning easily, but the lead would evaporate. In the seventh, Danny Espinosa rips a double to deep left center, Ian Desmond scored. Next batter, Kurt Suzuki doubled to right, Espinosa scored. Steve Lombardozzi, who pinch hit for Zack Duke, reached on infield single to second, Suzuki scored on throwing error by Donovan Solano.
Later in the eighth, Mike Morse rips a solo homer to right center and ties up the game to six.
The game would go to extra innings. In the tenth, Jose Reyes strikes again with a two run triple to deep left center. Two batters later, Carlos Lee hits a sac fly, Reyes scores.
Steve Cishek came in to try to close out the game. Cishek gets in a pickle as he gives up a run (not earned). Anyways, he would get out of it and the Marlins defeated the Nationals nine to seven.
Game two, which is on Saturday at 1:05 PM ET, will feature Mark Buehrle (12-12) and Ross Detwiler (9-6).
