Manager Dave Martinez is in a position to stay in Washington Nationals for quite some time.

So he will certainly be happy with more victories.

His nationals will play in a Sunday afternoon match visiting the Miami Marlins with three consecutive losses.

On Saturday, Martinez had the Nationals take up his 2023 contract option.

"This is my house," Martinez said. "I love here. I love the people I work with here."

He's probably now, including the first two games in this four-game series, after a 5-3 result on Saturday. I don't like playing against the Marlins, who won 10 of the 11 meetings between teams in the season.

Martinez, who oversaw the 2019 Championship season, holds a record of 295-330 at the Nationals.

Seven times this season, the Kuomintang lost three games in a row. Three times, these slumps have expanded beyond three games.

Meanwhile, Miami won three games in a row.

"We get a lot of contributions from different people," said Marlins manager Don Mattingly. "It's really all-out. I've played these three well."

The Marlins are trying to extend their winning streak beyond their second three games of the season.

"It's a joint effort for everyone," said shortstop Miguel Rojas.

The Marlins are playing 11 road games over a span of 13 games.

"It was a very long day (Saturday). I knew I needed to play two more hot games here," Rojas said. "We aim to win the series."

After winning two of the three games in each of the previous two series, the Nationals I want to split the series. They managed three runs in each of the last two games.

"We needed to make our swing more aggressive," Martinez said. "This team threw a lot of breaking balls at us. We have to hit the fastball and get ready to jump on it. There are two strikes and we sit until we are more aggressive. You don't have to wait. That's how we score. "

The National Party has started the last five games by right-handed Eric Fedde (5-5, 4.40 ERA) heading to the mound on Sunday. I won four of them. His 11 walks, which were struck out 17 times in June, are not an ideal ratio.

Fed lost the only outing of the season with the Marlins, a stint for the 42/3 innings on April 27th.

But he is 4-1. He will face Miami in 1.70 ERA in his eight careers. In addition, his 48 strikeouts in the Marlins reflect the best total against any opponent in his career.

The Marlins go with right-handed Pablo Lopez (5-4, 2.98 ERA), who has frustrated control issues. He has walked 24 batters and is already approaching the highest point of his career.

The shortest start of the Lopez season was against the Nationals in mid-May, continuing three innings and allowing three runs without deciding to defeat Miami's final ten innings. ..

Lopez has allowed almost one home run per game since the beginning of May, but no one has participated in the match against Washington.

He will face the Nationals 4-2 with an ERA of 4.77 in his 11 careers.
