WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jason Marquis pitched into the seventh inning to win his fifth game, drove in two runs and led the Washington Nationals over the Florida Marlins 8-4 on Sunday.
Ivan Rodriguez also had three RBIs for the Nationals, who scored six runs in the first inning against Javier Vazquez before hanging on to win.
Marquis (5-1) drove in two runs in the first with an RBI double, and added a single in the fourth. He allowed two runs in the second -- one of them unearned -- and two in the seventh, but still got credit for snapping Florida's eight-game winning streak in Washington.
Vazquez (2-4), who left the team for three days after the death of his wife's relative in Puerto Rico, allowed six runs and six hits in four innings.
