The Marlins rode a strong start from Jose Fernandez and held on to break their three game losing streak.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports


Marcell Ozuna (MIA) +25.2%

Ozuna batted fifth out of center field for the Marlins, and started out his day with a leadoff groundout in the second inning (-2.3%). He hit a one-out double in the fourth, moving Giancarlo Stanton to third base (+11.8%), then hit a leadoff triple in the sixth (+15.2%), scoring a moment later on Justin Bour's eighth home run of the season. Ozuna hit a two-out single in the seventh inning (+0.8%).

Ichiro Suzuki (MIA) +16.8%

Suzuki had his first four-hit game since August 18th last season, when he went four-for-five with a double in a 9-6 Marlins' win over the Milwaukee Brewers. He singled in the first (+3.6%), the third (+1.4%), and the fifth (+3.8%) batting leadoff and playing left field for the Marlins. He went on to draw a walk in the sixth (+0.4%) and hit a two-out double in the eighth (+0.6%).

Anthony Rendon (WAS) +16.5%

Rendon batted sixth in the order for the Nationals and manned the hot corner. He struck out to end the second (-1.1%) and the fourth with runners on the corners (-5.0%). He drew a two-out walk in the seventh (+1.9%) and walked to load the bases with nobody out in the ninth (+20.6%).
