  • MIAMI FL- MAY 30 Miami Marlins starting pitcher Justin Nicolino throwing a hard pitch during a game between the Miami Marlins and the Philadelphia Phillies

"After swinging at a fastball at 99, I said, 'OK, stay short and put the ball in play, '" Ozuna said.

Bryce Harper hit his 18th homer for Washington. He is listed as day-to-day. He advanced to third on a Stanton single and scored on the hit by Ozuna, whose drive shot into the gap in left-center field that would have been extra bases ordinarily but is ruled a single in this case.

It was sweet redemption for the Marlins, who lost on walk-off hits by Atlanta's Brandon Phillips on Saturday and again Sunday. In his last start against the Marlins Roark allowed two runs, striking out six over six innings on April 5. "When you get into their bullpen, you never know what's going to happen. but you know you have a chance to score some runs".

Neither starting pitcher lasted long in the first meeting of the two clubs since the season's opening series in Washington in April.

After blowing leads and losing on the final pitch in back-to-back weekend games, the Marlins overcame an early six-run deficit Monday night, and Ozuna singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning to beat the Washington Nationals 8-7.

Washington's Tanner Roark squandered a 6-0 lead by giving up six runs in the third and failed to make it through the inning. JT Riddle tripled in Derek Dietrich and later scored on Gordon's RBI groundout to trim the deficit to 6-2. Roark surrendered six runs in the third, the big blow being a grand slam by Justin Bour that tied the game and knocked Roark out.

Nationals: OF Jayson Werth (bruised foot) has yet to begin baseball activities, and there's no timetable for his return, manager Dusty Baker said. Giancarlo Stanton also hit his 18th of the season to make it 7-all in the seventh.

"That was a lot of fun", Bour said. This is a great time to be a Marlin.

Before the game, the Marlins optioned RHP Drew Steckenrider to Triple-A New Orleans so they could reinstate starter Justin Nicolino from the disabled list.

Marlins: 3B Martin Prado (hamstring) and SS Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique) have had two games rained out since beginning minor league rehab assignments, delaying their return to the majors.
