WASHINGTON -- Six days after leaving his last start with a strained hamstring, Mat Latos returned to the mound on Tuesday night for an outing he would describe as his best of the season.
Latos threw 6 1/3 innings and allowed one run and two hits as the Marlins beat Washington, 2-1, at Nationals Park. The win was the Marlins' 10th in their last 13 games, but the first of the season for Latos, who improved to 1-3 in his first campaign with Miami.
