WASHINGTON – Jesus Sanchez’s second two-run homer of the day capped a four-run ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins rallied past the Washington Nationals 8-6.
The Marlins tied it in the ninth on an RBI single by Miguel Rojas and a fielder’s-choice groundout by Bryan De La Cruz.
Then Sanchez hit the first pitch he saw from Kyle Finnegan to left-center for his 12th homer of the season.
Sanchez also hit a two-run homer in the sixth for Miami’s first runs.
De La Cruz homered in the eighth for the Marlins, who took two of three from Washington.
