Lucas Knowles turned in his second quality start and won his sixth game (third as a starter) with six innings of one-run ball on two hit and two walks while fanning five. Zach Burdi, Amos Willingham, and Jack Sinclair each put up a goose egg with Burdi and Willingham earning holds and Sinclair getting the save.

Kevin Rodriguez hit the first batter he faced then gave up a two-run single, which pinned the “L” on Otanez. The F-Nats blasted the F-Marlins with three singles and drew three walks and left on all six baserunners while going 0-for-3 with RISP.
