MIAMI (AP) -- Giancarlo Stanton homered leading off the ninth inning to tie it and Ed Lucas beat out double-play relay in the 10th to lift the Miami Marlins over the Washington Nationals 2-1 on Saturday night.
Stanton connected against Rafael Soriano to make it 1-all.
Steve Cishek (3-4) struck out Scott Hairston and Ryan Zimmerman with runners on second and third to end the Washington 10th.
Adeiny Hechavarria opened the Miami 10th by reaching second when third baseman Chad Tracy fielded his chopper but threw the ball into stands.
Craig Stammen (4-4) walked Jeff Mathis and Placido Polanco sacrificed both runners over. Justin Ruggiano was intentionally walked to load the bases.
Lucas grounded to second baseman Steve Lombardozzi, who threw to shortstop Ian Desmond for the forceout at second. Lucas beat the throw to first as the winning run scored.
Stanton connected on a 1-2 pitch for his 10th home run. It was Soriano's fourth blown save overall and first in the last 13 opport...

Strasblurg: 2 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 4 BB, 1 HR, 66 pitches. And so, it seems that Stephen Strasburg never recovered from having a Marlins dancer Twerking upside down behind him during his pregame bullpen session tonight in Miami.

Washington Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann will not pitch in the All-Star Game due to a neck injury.
Zimmermann had an X-ray and MRI to determine the severity of the injury, but manager Davey Johnson does not believe he will need to go on the disabled list.

Jayson Werth had an unfortunate case of misguided frustration following the Nationals loss to the Phillies on Thursday. During a postgame interview a microphone got a bit too close to his glorious facial hair and he let the reporter know how he felt about it and proceeded to end the interview. Hard to blame him.

This all changed when Zimmermann had X-rays and a MRI on his neck after pitching 6 1/3 innings Thursday...
