WASHINGTON, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Ross Ohlendorf twirled five innings of one-run ball Tuesday and the Washington Nationals used a pair of first-inning runs to get past Miami 2-1.
Ohlendorf (3-0) allowed just three hits, walked one and struck out three in the 78-pitch effort.
Marlins starter Nelson Eovaldi (2-5) took the hard-luck loss, surrendering two runs on eight hits over six innings. He walked one and fanned six.
Christian Yelich homered for Miami's only run.
