Tanner Roark allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings during Wednesday's start as the Nationals defeated the Marlins.

Roark allowed seven hits and walked two while striking out five. His only egregious error came in the fourth inning when Derek Dietrich hit a three-run home run to break a scoreless tie. Roark will face the Angels in his next start.

Zach Walters broke a 3-3 tie with a pinch-hit solo home run as the Nationals defeated the Marlins on Wednesday.

Walters, pinch-hitting in the pitcher's spot, took reliever Mike Dunn out to left field to put the Nationals up 4-3 in the eighth inning. Walters was recently promoted after Ryan Zimmerman suffered a thumb injury, and has homered in each of his last two games.
Apr 16 - 10:05 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a double as the Marlins lost to the Nationals on Wednesday.

Ozuna's average rises to .339 on the heels of Tuesday's four-hit performance. He has hit safely in 13 of his 15 games to start the season, and five of his 20 hits have gone for extra bases.
Apr 16 - 10:03 PM

Derek Dietrich went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run as the Marlins lost to the Nationals on Wednesday.

Dietrich accounted for all of the Marlins' offense, taking Tanner Roark deep in the bottom of the fourth inning, his third homer of the season. With Rafael Furcal making progress, Dietrich's playing time could soon be significantly reduced. He'll have to keep hitting to make the Marlins reconsider.
Apr 16 - 9:59 PM

Jayson Werth went 1-for-4 with a game-tying three-run home run as the Nationals toppsed the Marlins on Wednesday.

Werth's third blast of the season knotted the game up at three apiece in the sixth inning, victimizing starter Jose Fernandez. The right fielder was in the midst of a small slump entering the game, but is still hitting .308 and now has 11 RBI.
Apr 16 - 9:55 PM

Manny Machado (knee) ran the bases for the first time Wednesday with no problems.

Machado had been running sprints in the days prior, but Wednesday was the first day he ran the bases in his recovery from October knee surgery. He'll continue running the bases for the rest of the week. No indication was given as to when he'll be cleared to take part in extended spring training games, but it shouldn't be too long now.
Apr 16 - 9:51 PM

Julio Teheran ran roughshod over the Phillies' offense in Wednesday's start, shutting them out in a complete game effort to earn the win.

Teheran allowed three hits (all singles), walked none, and struck out four. The Phillies made weak contact against him all night long, only twice enjoying the sight of a runner in scoring position. Teheran has allowed two or fewer earned runs in each of his first four starts of the season, picking up where he left off in 2013. He'll face the Marlins next.
Apr 16 - 9:51 PM

Cliff Lee was dominant in Wednesday's start against the Braves, but earned a loss despite allowing one run in a complete game on Wednesday.

Lee's only blemish came courtesy of an Evan Gattis solo home run in the fourth inning that barely escaped the fence in the left field corner. Overall, Lee struck out 13, allowed 11 hits, and walked one. Over his first four starts, he has exemplified the vagaries of BABIP, but has also been around the strike zone a little too much, some might argue. Regardless, he now sports a 28:2 K:BB ratio.
