Casey McGehee's fourth hit of the game drove in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning, and Reed Johnson doubled home two more as the Miami Marlins defeated the Washington Nationals 8-5 on Wednesday night.
With a handful of boppers in their new-look lineup, these Miami Marlins are a legitimate comeback threat.
Reed Johnson thought the ball might be caught, so he went back to tag at second base.
The Nationals were without star third baseman Ryan Zimmerman for Tuesday's game against the Miami Marlins. And so, for the second game in a row, Washington manager Matt Williams switched second baseman Anthony Rendon to third base in Zimmerman's place and he contributed all over the field in a crisp 5-0 victory at Nationals Park.
After a long drive went just foul, Giancarlo Stanton was determined to at least swing hard.
The benches emptied, and Gomez was ejected for shoving Johnson, a reserve outfielder. Freddie Freeman and reserve catcher Gerald Laird were also ejected.
The Atlanta Braves boosted their rotation and added a right-handed bat to their bench Monday night by acquiring lefty Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson from the Chicago Cubs.
Catcher Koyie Hill and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to an $850,000, one-year contract, avoiding arbitration.
"A combination of insecticides, mites and diseases are all coming together," said Reed Johnson, an entomology professor at Ohio State University who studies the effects of pesticides on bees.
Johnson said that could be why Ohio's honeybee losses tend to be higher than the national rate of about 30 percent.
