Jazz Chisholm’s Home Run Pushes Marlins to 6-1 Win Over Nationals, Reaching .500 Mark

In a matchup between the Miami Marlins and the Washington Nationals, Jazz Chisholm Jr. hit a three-run home run that helped the Marlins secure a 6-1 win in the opening game of their four-game series.

The Marlins, who had lost eight of their last ten games, bounced back and reached a .500 record with this victory. They are now three games behind the San Francisco Giants for the final wild card spot in the National League.

Miami’s Jake Burger also contributed to the win by hitting his 28th home run of the season.

On the pitching side, Braxton Garrett and three relievers combined for a three-hitter, sealing the victory for the Marlins. Garrett, who has been excellent this season, allowed only one run and three hits over six innings. The Marlins have an impressive 19-7 record in games started by Garrett.

Washington struggled in this game and lost for the fourth time in their last five games. However, they had a successful month of August, finishing with a winning record for the first time this season.

Miami’s Luis Arraez continued to impress, collecting two hits and raising his batting average to .349, which is the best in the major leagues. He also tied for third place in multihit games this season.

The Marlins took an early lead with Bryan De La Cruz’s RBI double in the first inning and added another run with Arraez’s double-play grounder in the fourth. Washington scored their lone run with CJ Abrams’ sacrifice fly in the fifth.

Looking ahead, the Marlins will send Eury Perez to the mound in their next game against the Nationals. Perez, a rookie, has had success against Washington with a 1-0 record and a 0.82 ERA in two starts.

For the Nationals, Jake Irvin will be their starting pitcher. Irvin has been performing well recently, with a 1.45 ERA in his last three starts.

Overall, this game showcased the Marlins’ offensive power with Chisholm’s home run and their strong pitching performance. It will be interesting to see if they can maintain their momentum and continue their push for a playoff spot.

Trainer’s Room:

– Marlins outfielder Jorge Soler was out of the lineup with right hip tightness.

– Marlins pitcher Sixto Sanchez is progressing in his recovery and had a live batting practice session recently.

– Nationals outfielder Lane Thomas was scratched from the lineup due to back tightness.

– Nationals pitcher MacKenzie Gore has been placed on the bereavement list.

– Nationals pitcher Tanner Rainey is making progress in his rehabilitation after Tommy John surgery last year.

– Nationals pitcher Thaddeus Ward threw a bullpen session and is scheduled to pitch again soon.

In conclusion, the Marlins displayed a strong performance in their win against the Nationals, moving closer to a .500 record. With their offense and pitching clicking, they have a chance to make a late-season playoff push.
