MIAMI -- The Marlins are looking for some timely hitting to get on track, and for the third straight game, Martin Prado has delivered. Prado's single to right in the eighth inning on Friday lifted Miami to a 3-2 win over the Nationals at Marlins Park.
Prado followed up a four-RBI game at Philadelphia with his sixth run batted in over the past three games. His single off Aaron Barrett scored Adeiny Hechavarria, who doubled to open the inning. Miami has won a season-high three straight. Steve Cishek worked a perfect ninth for his first save of the season, and Miami has won a season-high three straight.
