Martis ends Nats’ skid with first major league win
Acta’s new-look relief corps did just that. Steven Shell entered for a fading Martis in the sixth, with two on and one out. And though the Marlins pushed one run across, Shell rebounded to get a double-play grounder out of Josh Willingham, ending the rally.
The real star, though, was Mike Hinckley, who continued his stunning big-league introduction with two more scoreless innings. The rookie left-hander held the Marlins in check in both the seventh and eighth, leaving him unscored upon in 11 2/3 innings since arriving from Class AAA Columbus and still trying to fathom what exactly this all means.
“This has been just an amazing experience,” Hinckley said. “I’m going to get home in the offseason and just think about this month. I’ll probably end up breaking down in tears because I’ll be so excited.”
