Marlins Vs. Nationals: Giancarlo Stanton Out For Saturday's Game

The Miami Marlins (7-7) had their four-game winning streak snapped with Friday night's 2-0 loss to the Washington Nationals (11-4), and now must defeat young phenom Stephen Strasburg on Saturday to restart their winning ways.

Miami will send Anibal Sanchez to the hill against the Nationals, a team the right-hander has had tremendous success against in his career. Sanchez is 7-0 with a 2.06 ERA in 17 career starts against Washington, and has won his last three starts in D.C. while yielding only one earned run in 22 1/3 innings pitched.

Giancarlo Stanton will miss the game for Miami. In light of Stanton's absence, Emilio Bonifacio will start at second base, with Chris Coghlan manning center field.

Here is the full Marlins lineup for Saturday's contest:

Jose Reyes - SS

Emilio Bonifacio - 2B

Hanley Ramirez - 3B

Logan Morrison - LF

Gaby Sanchez - 1B

Greg Dobbs - RF

John Buck - C

Chris Coghlan - CF

Anibal Sanchez - RHP
