The Nationals haven’t been able to mount a rally on Josh Johnson—he’s still getting one groundout after another with his mid-90s fastball. If there’s one bright spot in this one for Washington, it’s Julian Tavarez, who has struck out four in three no-hit innings. His fastball is topping out around 90, and he’s had no trouble slowing down the Marlins offense. Pretty much what Washington hope it would get from the right-hander.

Still 8-0 Marlins in this one.
