Nats doomed by rain… again

dunn homerun.jpgThe Marlins beat the Nationals last night 7-5 in a rain-shortened game at Land Shark Stadium. While the Nats looked strong on the offensive end, they ran into trouble with their bullpen and defense. Adam Dunn inched closer to home run 300 with a two-run blast in the fifth to give the Nats a 5-1 lead. He sits on 298. Starter Craig Stammen looked strong pitching, and helped his cause by driving in two runs on a single in the fourth, but he faltered in the sixth when the Marlins cut the lead to 5-4 on a home run by Hanley Ramirez. In the seventh, Ramirez again did some damage with a two-run, two-out single with the bases loaded. Jorge Cantu hit an RBI base hit before the game was suspended due to rain.

“It couldn’t happen an inning before?” Dunn said. “You’ve gotta think the baseball gods really do hate us.”
