The Nationals got out to a 6-0 lead before Tanner Roark gave it up. It was Roark’s third poor start in a row and ever since his bobblehead day he hasn’t been the same. The dagger came in the third inning when the Marlins tied it with a six-run inning capped off by a grand slam by Justin Bour.

Bryce Harper started the game with a two-run home run for his 18th of the year.


In the second Anthony Rendon homered to the sculpture out in center field for his 13th of the year. In the third, Daniel murphy hit an RBI double while Michael Taylor hit a two-RBI single to make it 6-0.

After the grand slam that tied the game the Nationals got back in front in the fifth with an RBI double by Stephen Drew. The Marlins tied it back up with a home run by Giancarlo Stanton off of Jacob Turner in the seventh.

Enny Romero came on for the ninth and loaded the bases with two outs and the game ended with a walk-off base hit by Marcell Ozuna.
