    Despite extra-innings loss to Marlins, Nats are encouraged by their play

    The Washington Nationals did so many things right Friday night — Roger Bernadina's highlight-reel, game-saving catch, the timely home run and RBI-hits, the near-perfect relay throw they executed in the 11th inning — that it was almost difficult to believe they were the ones leaving Nationals Park with their second straight loss.
