A feel-good finish to the home portion of the 2019 Marlins schedule, the Fish pushed across four runs in the seventh inning on Sunday to beat the Nationals, 5-3. It snaps an 11-game losing streak in this rivalry.
The Nats greeted Pablo López rudely, as Trea Turner, Adam Eaton and Anthony Rendon pushed across the first run of the afternoon with back-to-back-to-back singles. The rest of his outing, however, López allowed only three more hits (all of them singles).
The Marlins’ defensive performance behind him was mixed.
