Nick Johnson hit a three-run double and drove in four runs, leading Washington to a 6-4 win over the Florida Marlins on Friday. Johnson's two-out double in the seventh inning off reliever Taylor Tankersley helped the Nationals end a three-game skid. Washington, which had lost 12 of 13, had scored only five runs in being swept by the Mets.
Winner Tim Redding (3-1) pitched six innings, allowing four runs on three hits, while striking out a career-high 10. Redding was cruising with a one-hitter until the sixth. With one out, he hit Hanley Ramirez with a pitch. Ramirez stole second and scored on a two-out single by Jeremy Hermida and Josh Willingham homered to give the Marlins a 4-3 lead.
