Marlins 7, Nationals 1: A blast from the past in Miami.
Some bad pitching, a little shoddy defense, and Chris Volstad.
Not much they could've done against a dominant Volstad last night anyway, but they sure didn't help themselves.
Silver lining: Tyler Clippard got the night off. Still only one game out of first place in the NL East.
