MIAMI, May 29 (UPI) -- Anibal Sanchez didn't allow an earned run over seven innings Tuesday in the Miami Marlins' 3-1 decision over Washington.

The only run off Sanchez (3-3) came in the fifth inning following catcher John Buck's throwing error. Otherwise, the Marlins right-hander handled the Nationals on three hits, issuing only one walk while striking out five.
