The 9 K's counted for Marquis best performance since September 4, 2004 (h/t Adam Kilgore). Marquis ERA on the season is now 3.65, proving his worth in earning $7.5 million.
The Nats offense tied the game in the 8th inning when Pudge got the first of his two clutch hits in this game. The Nats ultimately tied the game in the 8th but still the Nats left the bases loaded.
Adam LaRoche led off the 11th inning with a single and got scarified to 2nd by PH Jordan Zimmermann, but more bad news for the middle of the Nats lineup came when LaRoche was pulled from the game. No news on what the injury is yet, but with his partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, the bad news keeps coming for Adam.
Factor in Ryan Zimmerman's lingering abdominal issues and Jayson Werth's continued struggles at the plate, the middle of the lineup might be in for some serious struggles over the next 7-10 days.
