In his final start before the regular season, Josh Johnson was in mid-season form striking out nine Washington Nationals’ hitters in a 3-2 Miami Marlins loss on Friday night.   The Marlins now have only three games left before Opening Night with two of those coming at Marlins Park.     For the Spring, the Marlins sit at 10-12.

Johnson finishes the Spring with a 2-2 record and a 2.42 ERA after going five and two third innings in this game.    The Marlins’ ace allowed three runs on six hits and a walk.   Beau Jones finished the sixth inning with a strikeout after Johnson was removed due to pitch count restrictions.   Ryan Webb worked a scoreless seventh inning walking and striking out one.   Gary Glover finished off the pitching in the eighth walking one, and striking out another.

The Marlins put together nine hits in the game with two of them going for extra bases.   Omar Infante and Emilio Bonifacio each hit doubles, their fourth and second of the Spring respectively.   Jose Reyes was 1-5 with a run batted in.   Logan Morrison added the other run with an RBI single in the sixth inning.    Johnson picked up a hit in the game as well to improve his .400 batting average on the Spring.

On Saturday the Marlins will take on the New York Mets with Mark Buehrle scheduled to make his final start of the Spring.   The Mets will send Miguel Batista to the mound.
