WASHINGTON (CBSMiami/AP) – The Marlins led in the seventh inning and again in the eighth. Both times, they lost it.

Washington remained under .500 after rallying past the Miami Marlins 6-4 Monday night, yet it might not be long before this team lives up to its preseason hype.

“This is the team I’ve waited for,” Yunel Escobar said through a translator.

Escobar had a career-high five hits, and the Nationals combined solid pitching with timely hitting to carve out their sixth victory in seven games.

Jordan Zimmermann kept the game close for seven innings, and former starter Tanner Roark sealed the win with his first career save.

Better yet, the Nationals banged out 12 hits and overcame a 4-2 deficit in a four-run eighth.

“It gives them confidence that they’re not out of a game, which is a good thing,” manager Matt Williams said.
