Jose Fernandez, Marlins dominate Nationals in shutout
Fernandez (11-6) retired the first 14 batters before walking Adam LaRoche. He didn’t allow a hit until the sixth with one out when pinch-hitter Zach Walters hit a dribbler up the third-base line for a base hit in his first big league at-bat. Third baseman Placido Polanco didn’t have a play on the slow roller and was hoping it would roll foul, but the ball stayed on the infield grass.
Fernandez, who lowered his ERA to 2.23, is expected to have one more start on Wednesday at home against Atlanta before he is shut down for the season. The 21-year old has a 170-inning limit placed on him and he has thrown 165 2/3 innings.
Haren lasted just three innings and allowed five runs and six hits. He was coming off another short outing as he pitched 2 2/3 innings and allowed seven runs in a loss to the New York Mets on Aug. 31.
Stanton’s home run in the eighth completed the scoring.
NOTES: Fernandez is 8-0 with a 1.19 ERA in 14 starts at home. … Nationals CF Denard Span, who is on a 17-game hitting streak, was a late scratch to the lineup with tightness in his groin. LHP Ross Detwiler will throw a bullpen session over the weekend with hopes of returning at some point this season. … Washington RHP Tanner Roark (4-0, 1.19 ERA) will take the mound on Saturday and face Miami RHP Nathan Eovaldi (3-5, 3.40 ERA).
