WASHINGTON – Trevor Rogers provided his longest outing of the season by allowing one run in six innings, and the Miami Marlins stretched their winning streak to five games with a 3-2 sweep-completing victory over the reeling Washington Nationals.

Rogers gave up just two hits against a Nationals lineup that has produced merely 16 runs during a current eight-game losing skid.

Cole Sulser worked around a leadoff walk in the ninth to get his first save of 2022 in his first chance.

Nationals starter Patrick Corbin is 0-4.

The Marlins are 10-8. The Nationals fell to 6-15.
