Marlins Vs. Nationals Score Update: Miami Up 7-0 In Sixth

Washington Nationals star Stephen Strasburg is human after all. He's been in the headlines because of the controversial inning limit put in place by the Nationals, but his start on Tuesday night won't be moving much closer to that number.

The Miami Marlins chased him after five innings, as the hard-throwing right-hander gave up nine hits and seven runs, five of them earned, in 84 pitches.

Justin Ruggiano hit his 13th HR of the season in the second, with Greg Dobbs, Carlos Lee, Giancarlo Stanton and Donovan Solano chipping in RBIs as well.

Ricky Nolasco, on the other hand, has had one of his finest starts of the season. He has allowed only three hits while striking out five batters through six scoreless innings of work.

Washington has been the darling of baseball in 2012, a title Miami had hoped to earn after a huge spending spree in the off-season, but for at least one night, the shoe has been on the other foot.
