Heroes and Zeroes: Marlins 5, Nationals 1

Miami came back to even the four-game series with a four-run win on Sunday afternoon. Jose Fernandez was the big Hero.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports


Jose Fernandez (MIA) +33.6%

Fernandez threw 117 pitches over seven innings, and earned a GameScore of 73, which was his second best GS of the season after the 76 he got last week in his 4-1 win over Milwaukee. He allowed three walks and four hits (including Ryan Zimmerman's inside-the-park homer) for an in-game WHIP of 1.000, and earned the win to bring his record to 5-2 and his ERA to 3.21. He struck out 11 Nationals in total.

Martin Prado (MIA) +13.5%

Prado played third base and batted second for the Fish. Most of his positive impact for the Marlins came in the third inning, when Stephen Drew dropped Prado's easy pop fly and allowed JT Realmuto and Adeiny Hechavarria to score. Aside from that, he hit a leadoff single to left in the seventh inning.

Ryan Zimmerman (WAS) +12.0%

Zimmerman batted cleanup for the Nats and played first base. Leading off the fourth inning, he hit a long fly ball to deep right center field. Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton got tangled up going for the ball, which dropped onto the ground as Zimmerman circled the bases for an inside-the-parker. He got onto base in the eighth on a single.
