Nationals Vs. Marlins Game Preview: Edwin Jackson Earns Start In Rubber Match

The Washington Nationals evened the weekend series against the Miami Marlins Saturday night on a 10th inning walk-off single from outfielder Corey Brown. With the bases loaded, Brown singled off of Marlins reliever Chad Gaudin, driving in Washington shortstop Ian Desmond for the winning run.

The extra innings were set up by a Jayson Werth solo home run in the bottom of the 9th, which took place after a nearly three-hour rain delay.

Closer Drew Storen (2-1, 3.26 ERA) earned the win for the Nationals, after relieving Tyler Clippard at the top of the 10th.

Sunday, the Nats look to win the series against the Marlins as Edwin Jackson (9-9, 3.63 ERA) will face Miami's Ricky Nolasco (11-12, 4.64 ERA) at 1:35 p.m. in Nationals Park. Nolasco's last outing against Washington on Aug. 28 saw him pitch nine innings of shutout baseball, earning a 5-0 victory against Stephen Strasburg. Jackson, on the other hand, has struggled against the Marlins, going 1-5 all time against Miami with a 6.00 ERA.

The game will be broadcast on MASN 2 HD in the DC area and on FS-F HD in the Miami area.
