The Marlins won 9-3 tonight as they beat the Nationals on the heels of another late inning loss this season, this latest one coming on 14 innings from last night.
The Marlins got tons of hits, including a homer from Hanley Ramirez and a MLB first home run for Jason Woods, who took over 1B for the ailing Mike Jacobs.
Miguel Cabrera, who took BP this afternoon, sat out and Aaron Boone replaced him in the lineup.
The Marlins rode Anibal Sanchez for 5 innings on his way to his second win and got four solid innings of relief from Matt Lindstrom and Randy Messenger. Scott Tyler, the recent callup from AA Carolina, did warm up in the pen but did not make his MLB debut quite yet.
The win snaps a six game losing streak and helps the Marlins regain some footing. Hopefully, this will help the Marlins get their bearings back and start a streak in the other direction.
