Marlins Vs. Nationals: Miami Looks To Salvage One Win In Sunday's Series Finale

The Miami Marlins (7-8) will send Josh Johnson to the hill on Sunday at Nationals Park, looking to salvage one game in their weekend series with the Washington Nationals (12-4).

Johnson, the staff ace, is just 0-2 this season with a 5.94 ERA, but is coming off a solid start on Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs in which Johnson gave up two earned runs over seven innings. In 14 career starts against Washington, the right-hander is 7-0 with a 3.22 ERA.

Johnson will be opposed by lefty Gio Gonzalez, a key acquisition for the Nationals in the offseason. Gonzalez is 1-0 this season with a 2.04 ERA, and enters Sunday's game with a 14-inning scoreless streak at Nats Park.

The Marlins have lost three straight games in Washington after winning 13 of their previous 14 contests at Nationals Park.
