The Miami Marlins will look to split their series with the Washington Nationals on Friday night, hoping for a win to even things out in the two game series. They turn to Carlos Zambrano to take the hill, facing Edwin Jackson for Washington. Game 4 is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on WAXY 790 and WAQI 710 radio as well as FS-F HD TV.
Zambrano has struggled recently, posting a 0-4 record with an 8.00 ERA in his last six starts. Historically he's had success against the Nationals. He's faced the club nine times, going 7-2 with a 2.83 ERA. Miami will need another performance like those, but they'll also need the offense to contribute: Miami has been outscored 10-3 in the series' two losses and one win. That's where manager Ozzie Guillen placed responsibility for Sunday's loss:
"That's the reason we lost," Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said. "I think we had a golden opportunity. We had one of the best pitchers in the game on the ropes, but we didn't take advantage. If you want to be good, you've got to get this thing done."
