Marlins jump to early lead, but fall 7-4 to Nationals

WASHINGTON (AP) With his team long out of contention and slugger Giancarlo Stanton nearing his return, Marlins manager Dan Jennings is embracing his team's role as spoilers in the NL East playoff race.

Miami nearly put a dent in Washington's chances Sunday before Jayson Werth homered and drove in three runs and Clint Robinson added a pinch-hit home run as the Nationals rallied past the Marlins 7-4.

The Marlins had early leads of 3-0 and 4-2 and had two men on with two outs in the ninth before Jonathan Papelbon retired Dee Gordon to end it.
