4.17.13 – Nationals 6, Marlins 1

Stat of the Game: With seven innings of one-run ball, Ross Detwiler became just the second pitcher in Nationals/Expos history to go at least six innings while allowing one or fewer runs in each of his first three starts of the season, joining Pedro Martinez.

Under-the-Radar Performance: Coming off a missed game to to the flu, Bryce Harper matched a career high with four hits, including an RBI infield single with two outs in the ninth.

It Was Over When: The Nationals bounced back from their only run allowed (on a questionable call in the bottom of the fifth inning) to score single runs in the sixth and seventh and put the game out of reach.
