Overview: The Marlins lost three of four in Philadelphia but won all three this weekend in Washington D.C. The team is now 73-69 but remains nine games out of first place and eight and a half games out of the wild card.
Positives: The Marlins and Nationals played a series (with Nyjer Morgan) and didn't have any incidents. The weekend sweep also ensure the Fish finish with a dominating 13-5 season series record over the Nats. Mike Stanton came out of his slump and has hit the 20 home run mark.
Negatives: It sucks losing to Philly.
Line of the Week: Adalberto Mendez silenced the Phillies bats for six innings in his major league debut and collected the win.

Highlight of the Week: Screw it, we'll pile on Nyjer Morgan. He was caught stealing on a perfect throw by catcher Brad Davis. Tip of the cap to Mike Stanton for hitting two homers today.
Looking Ahead: The Marlins come home for three games each with the Phillies and Cubs.
