WASHINGTON -- The Marlins ran off nine wins in 10 games through Saturday. Now, they've lost two straight. Issuing walks in the late innings played a central role in Monday night's 6-4 setback against the Nationals.
Miami surrendered a 2-1 lead in the seventh and a 4-2 lead in the eighth, with walks to Washington batters resulting in runs in both innings.
