Marlins Swept By Nationals In 4th Of July Loss

WASHINGTON (CBSMiami/AP) — The Miami Marlins failed to secure a win on America’s birthday, losing 5-2 to the Washington Nationals on Thursday.

Anthony Rendon hit his 20th homer and knocked in the go-ahead run to help the Nationals finish off a three-game sweep of the last-place Marlins.

Washington has won eight of nine and 13 of 16 to climb to a season-best four games over .500.

Rendon was selected for the NL All-Star team for the first time in his seventh season, but is considering pulling out of festivities next week in Cleveland to nurse some bumps and bruises.
