Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco has five strikeouts through two innings but somehow the Nationals got something going in the second.
After two outs, Pudge got a base hit. Jerry Hairston followed with a double that scored Pudge. Ian Desmond then struck out swinging to end the inning. Nolasco struck out the side and had five strikeouts through two frames.
The Nationals led 1-0 heading to the third.
Jordan ZImmermann has allowed a first inning single to former National Emilio Bonifacio, but that is it so far for the Marlins.
