Lindor Shines, But Nationals Fall Short
Washington shortstop Francisco Lindor had a terrific game, but it still wasn't enough to get his team a win. Lindor went 3 for 3 with a home run, 2 singles, and 2 walks. He scored 3 runs and drove in 2, even as Miami beat the Nationals, 9-6. Miami improves to 87-66 with the win. They lead their division by 4 games.

Had Vladimir Guerrero Jr. not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the seventh, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and runners on 1st and 2nd, Guerrero Jr. hit a run-scoring single. That made the score 6-5, in favor of the Marlins.

"Feels good to get the job done," Guerrero Jr. said after the game.
