Marlins make 3 more errors, lose to Nationals 10-7
Question of the Day
From there, though, things fell apart.
“Every time we got ourselves in a good position,” Redmond said, “we made a mistake that cost us.”
“If you give them extra outs,” Redmond said, “they’re going to make you pay.”
His club already has made 11 errors in nine games.
Werth and Harper each delivered his first homer of the season as the Marlins blew advantages of 5-0 and 7-6. Werth’s shot off Marmol (0-1) came with one out, after the reliever allowed a single, hit a batter, then intentionally walked Anthony Rendon to load the bases.
“They scored seven runs on two swings,” Redmond noted. “It takes us 14 hits to get seven runs.”
Werth’s shot made a winner of Tyler Clippard (1-1), who yielded Garrett Jones’ tiebreaking RBI double in the top of the eighth after walking a pair of batters. Rafael Soriano worked the ninth for his second save.
Werth then came through with his fourth career grand slam, and first with the Nationals. He drove an 0-1 pitch into the visitor’s bullpen in left-center, then acknowledged the fans’ cheering with a curtain call.
“Crazy game. Back and forth,” said Werth, who violently tossed his bat after making contact. “One of those games where you play that long, you want to win.”
Harper began the night hitting .160 with zero RBIs and nearly three times as many strikeouts (11) as hits (four) this season. Dropped to seventh in the batting order, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year culminated a 10-pitch at-bat against left-hander Brad Hand in the fourth inning by turning on a 94 mph offering and hitting it over the foul pole and into the fifth row of the third deck beyond right field.
