Marlins 2, Nationals 1 (10 innings)
Jesus Aguilar hit a walk-off RBI single off the second-base bag as Miami defeated visiting Washington in 10 innings.
The tying run was scored by placed runner Jazz Chisholm Jr., who was initially called out after Willians Astudillo’s single to right that preceded Aguilar’s game-winner. However, on video replay it was ruled that Nationals catcher Keibert Ruiz did not give Chisholm a lane to the plate. Chisholm missed touching home with his dive, but that no longer mattered once the umpires made their ruling.
