The Miami Marlins defeated the Washington Nationals 9-7 on Friday, September 7, 2012.
In a nutshell: Starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg got a little roughed up and ending up only pitching three innings during his last home start of the season. Unfortunately, fans didn’t get an opportunity to show their appreciation for the entire season. Zach Duke pitched for the Nats for the first time. Corey Brown pinch hit for Strasburg. Ryan Zimmerman and Michael Morse hit home runs. Triple-A Syracuse Manager Tony Beasley joined the Nats coaching staff for rest of season. The Nats fought their way back to tie the game and go to ten innings.
