Brian Anderson’s infield single broke a 4-4 tie in the 10th inning and sparked the Marlins’ winning three-run rally.
With the Marlins down to their last strike in the top of the ninth inning, Jesus Sanchez hit a two-run home run to put them ahead 4-3. The Nationals tied in the bottom half of Victor Robles’ RBI single with two outs.

Jon Berti and Sanchez each drove in two runs for the Marlins. Luke Williams added a homer.
Josh Bell went deep for the Nationals and finished with two hits.
Nationals star right fielder Juan Soto is questionable for Monday after leaving the game with right calf tightness. Soto, whose eight-game hitting streak ended, was set to undergo an MRI on Sunday night. He has +8000 National League MVP odds.

Marlins vs Nationals Prediction
It is tough to sweep a four-game series even when one team is dominating the other team in a particular season such as the Marlins are to the Nationals. Corbin is slowly turning his season around and is worth backing in this game.
