By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Anibal Sanchez allowed just three hits in eight impressive innings and Mike Stanton hit a long home run Saturday to lead the Florida Marlins to a 1-0 win over the Washington Nationals.
Stanton's seventh homer of the season came in the seventh. The Marlins held on to win their eighth straight game in Washington.
Marlins closer Leo Nunez gave up a walk and single to start the ninth, then escaped the first-and-second jam for his 14th save in 14 chances.
