"We had them in a spot where we should've scored a run. We had the right guys up, it just didn't happen. It's frustrating, but it's baseball."
(Davey Johnson, via Nationals.com, 5/29/2012)
Marlins 3, Nationals 1: Bases loaded with one out in the 8th after two straight walks, but over-anxious Bryce Harper swings and misses at 3 straight pitches; Ryan Zimmerman grounds out to kill the rally dead.
Anibal Sanchez improves to 8-0 for his career against Washington. Maybe next time.
Silver lining: They didn't get no-hit. Ian Desmond breaks up Anibal Sanchez's no-no in the fifth.
Raise your hand if you can explain why Davey Johnson chose to pitch to Giancarlo Stanton with a man on third and two outs in the sixth.
Jhonatan Solano collects first big league hit in 9th.
