The Nationals trailed 2-0, came back, and hung on for dear life… literally to take the finale of the four game set against the Marlins. Just one short week after dropping two of three to these same guys in Miami, the Nats took three of four from these guys.
The Nationals trailed 2-0 in the second when Giancarlo Stanton belted a two-run homer for his 39th of the season.

The Nats rallied in the sixth to tie the game. Adrian Sanchez led off with a double and Tanner Roark moved him over to third with a bunt. Brian Goodwin drove home Sanchez with a base hit to right field. Goodwin would make it home later in the inning to tie it on a Bryce Harper double off the out of town scoreboard.
Goodwin would homer in the eighth to complete the comeback. Sean Doolittle came on for the save and gave up a double to the second batter he faced, Miguel Rojas. Rojas advanced to third on a groudout by the next batter. With the winning run 90-feet away, Andrew Stephenson saved the day.
In case you were wondering, Andrew Stevenson is summering at Kintzler, Madson & Doolittle. pic.twitter.com/34KaooogYx
