Heroes And Zeroes: Nationals 3, Marlins 1

Miami continues to struggle early in the still-young season, losing it's ninth game of 13.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports


Yusmeiro Petit (WAS) +14.0%

Petit came on early in long relief and pitched the third through the sixth inning for the Nationals. He faced just one Marlin over the minimum, allowing just two hits (including Derek Dietrich's solo home run) and no walks. He struck out three batters in total.

Joe Ross (WAS) +13.7%

Ross allowed a hit and a walk in his short start for the Nationals, pitching a total of two innings. In the top of the third, in his only plate appearance, he drew a walk then scored the eventual game-winning run on a Bryce Harper double to center field.

Derek Dietrich (MIA) +11.0%

Dietrich hit a solo home run, leading off the fifth inning by reducing the Marlins deficit from three runs to two. Unfortunately, that was all the offense the Fish could muster.

Giancarlo Stanton (MIA) -14.7%

Stanton flew out in his first at bat, and that was his best plate appearance. He earned the Golden Sombrero by striking out in his next three to earn the biggest Zero of the night.
