Uggla Carries Marlins To 3-Game Sweep Over Nats

By  | 

MIAMI (AP) - Dan Uggla hit a tiebreaking three-run double, Chris Volstad was almost flawless after a shaky first inning, and the Florida Marlins beat the Washington Nationals 6-4 on Wednesday to complete an opening three-game sweep.

John Baker added a pair of run-scoring singles for the Marlins, 3-0 for only the second time. The other was in 1997, when Florida won the first of two World Series titles.

Volstad (1-0) struck out seven, allowing two runs - one earned -
and two hits in five innings. Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-4, lowering his average to .571, with two runs and his fourth steal of the year for the Marlins.
