MIAMI —The first half of the season didnt go as expected for the Miami
Marlins. Reggie Wayne Camo Jersey . The second half
didnt get off to a good start. The division-leading Washington Nationals
stretched their lead over the Marlins to 10 games with a 5-1 win Friday night
that was powered by a two-run home run by Ryan Zimmerman. “Im not going to panic
yet,” Marlins catcher John Buck said. The Marlins have lost three straight. “Why
wouldnt we be optimistic?” Buck said. “Weve got a good club. We havent played
well. Weve underachieved. Do we make it hard on ourselves? Yes, but weve got a
good enough team that with the addition of Carlos (Lee) we have enough to close
the gap.” Jesus Flores drove in two runs for the Nationals, who have won six of
eight. Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann (6-6) pitched six scoreless innings
allowing four hits and striking out six as he lowered his ERA to 2.48. He is one
of two pitchers in the majors who has pitched at least six innings in each of
his starts this season. “Last year I thought he pitched like a No. 1 (starter)
and hes continued this year,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “Hes been
not getting hardly any run support, but hes growing up even more this year.”
Josh Johnson (5-6) lost to Washington for the first time in his career as he
allowed five runs and 11 hits in 5 1-3 innings. Johnson was 8-0 in 15 starts
against the Nationals. “Pretty bad, not the way you want to start the second
half,” Johnson said. The Marlins were out-hit 13-7 and have dropped three
straight. “We couldnt put it together,” Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said.
“Zimmermann threw the ball pretty good. Today, we took it like another All-Star
break day. Hopefully tomorrow we can come back and swing the bats better.”
Ian Desmonds RBI single scored the Nationals first run before Zimmerman
connected off Johnson to left-centre field in the third to make it 3-0. “Hes
always good,” Zimmerman said of Johnson. “Hes not a fun guy to face, but he made
a mistake and I put a good swing on it.” Zimmermann allowed three hits to the
first five batters before settling down. He was at his best in the fourth inning
when he struck out Logan Morrison, Hanley Ramirez and Justin Ruggiano, all
swinging. “I had a pretty good fastball tonight and I was able to locate it
pretty well,” Zimmermann said. “I was just spotting up with that and I got some
swings and misses.” Adam LaRoche singled to lead off the sixth, his third hit of
the game, and Desmond followed with a hit. Flores drove them both home with a
single to left that dropped right in front of Morrison. LaRoche crossed home
plate just before Desmond, who was only three steps behind and extended the lead
to 5-0. “Desi is a lot faster than Adam,” Zimmerman said. “I guess Adam was
going to tag up and score if the guy caught it with his speed. It was one of
those funny plays. Im just glad they both scored.” Flores hit ended Johnsons
outing. The Marlins threatened in the seventh when Zimmermann left in favour of
Henry Rodriguez. After Bucks RBI single scored Ruggiano to make it 5-1,
Austin Kearns lined into an inning-ending double play to pitcher
Michael Gonzalez, who relieved had Rodriguez. Ruggiano stole a career-high three
bases. NOTES: Zimmermans home run was his 15th against the Marlins, the most hes
hit against any club. ... Ramirez was dropped to fifth in the lineup for the
first time in his career after closing the first half on a 2-for-22 slump.
“Hanley is struggling at the plate,” Guillen said. “As Hanley starts hitting
better he will be moved back to where he is supposed to be (in the third spot).”
... Miami placed OF Giancarlo Stanton (right knee surgery) on the 15-day DL,
retroactive to July 8, and activated OF Emilio Bonifacio (left thumb surgery)
off the 15-day DL after Bonifacio missed 46 games. Stanton is expected to miss
4-6 weeks. “I dont know (when Ill be back), I just started walking,” Stanton
said. “I honestly have no idea. They say four to six weeks, but Ive got no
clue.” ... Marlins first-round pick LHP Andrew Heaney signed a $2.6 million
bonus just before Fridays deadline and was in attendance. ... Miami-native LHP
Gio Gonzalez (12-3, 2.92 ERA) will start Saturday for the Nationals against LHP
Mark Buehrle (8-8, 3.25 ERA), who has won his last three starts. Andrew Luck Jersey . Posey drove in five runs
with three hits, Barry Zito combined with two relievers on a five-hitter and the
San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves 9-0 on Tuesday night. Donnie Avery Jersey . Watch the game live on
TSN tonight at 7pm et/4pm pt. The younger and far more athletic 76ers escaped
Beantown with a split and will now have an opportunity to take control of their
Eastern Conference semifinals series with their more ballyhooed rivals in the
pivotal Game 3 at Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday. http://www.indianapoliscoltsgears.com/reggie-wayne-jersey/
