Heroes and Zeroes: Marlins 7, Nationals 1

The Fish rebounded in the nightcap for a six-run win in D.C.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports


Marcell Ozuna (MIA) +22.2%

Ozuna batted sixth for the Fish in the order out of center field, and earned the top Hero of the game with a three-hit game (Martin Prado also collected three for the Marlins). He hit a leadoff triple (+9.8%) and scored the first run of the night in the second inning. In the fifth, he hit a bases-loaded single to center field, scoring Derek Dietrich and Martin Prado for a 5-1 lead (+13.0%), later scoring the last run of the game. He hit a two-out single in the ninth to load the bases (0.0%), but was stranded on JT Realmuto's flyout.

Derek Dietrich (MIA) +17.4%

Dietrich played second base and led off for the Marlins, and took first on Tanner Roark's third pitch of the night the hard way, via pain (HBP, +3.6%). He hit a two-out RBI double to right field (+11.4%), scoring Miguel Rojas in the second for a 2-0 Miami lead. Dietrich drew a leadoff walk in the fifth (+2.6%), scoring on a Marcell Ozuna single for a 5-1 Marlins advantage.

Kendrys Flores (MIA) +11.9%

Flores only lasted three innings in his first major league start of the season, but left the game with a 3-0 Miami lead. He gave up three walks and a hit for a 1.333 in-game WHIP, striking out one. He earned a 55 GameScore, getting barely over half of his pitches (30-of-59) into the strikezone. He was lifted after three innings due to right shoulder pain.

Revere led off and played center field for the Nationals, going 0-for-5 on the night with three groundouts and two lineouts.
