Recap: Miami vs. Washington

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Adam LaRoche smacked a two-run homer and the Washington Nationals edged the Miami Marlins, 3-2, in the second test of a four-game set.

Doug Fister (15-6) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over 6 2/3 innings for Washington, which has won 10 of its last 13 games. Drew Storen fired a 1-2-3 ninth for his eighth save of the season.

"Doug was really good tonight," Nationals manager Matt Williams said.

The Nationals opened the scoring with a two-run first. Jayson Werth worked a two-out walk and LaRoche launched his towering blast into the upper deck in right.

Both teams scored a run in the fourth.

Wilson Ramos and Asdrubal Cabrera hit one-out singles in the top of the fourth and Denard Span's single two batters later plated Ramos.

Bour's moonshot into the upper deck in right-center cut the deficit to 3-2 in the home half.
