Florida Marlins beat Washington Nationals 6-5 in 11
WASHINGTON (AP) — Omar Infante used a clever slide to score on Greg Dobbs' double in the 11th inning, lifting the Florida Marlins to a 6-5 win over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.
On a night of spectacular plays, Infante made the most important one. With one out Infante singled off Brian Broderick (0-1), then came all the way around on Dobbs' drive to right. The ball beat Infante to home plate and Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was in position to make a tag, but Infante slid head first and reached over and around Ramos to touch the back tip of the plate for the go-ahead run.
The Marlins, who have won seven straight in Washington, could have went ahead in the fifth but Roger Bernadina made a sensational catch to keep it tied.
Bernadina also had three hits and two RBIs on a fourth-inning double.
