Patterson shaky, plus "Sophomore of the Year" Battle

So John Patterson doesn't appear to have his best stuff today. He's topping out at 90 mph, but his curveball doesn't appear to have much snap. He allowed a run in the first on Mike Jacobs's opposite-field single to left (in a very good at-bat in which he fouled off two-strike pitches) that scored Hanley Ramirez, who led off the inning with a double, then stole third and scored easily.

Nats counter with a two-out triple from -- uh, you guessed it -- Ryan Zimmerman. He went the other way -- to right -- with it, driving the ball off Willis over the head of Borchard, who fell. Funny, was just talking to Zimmerman the other day about how he planned on hitting zero triples this year, because he hit three last year, and if those were doubles, he would've ended up with 50 doubles. (He was kidding, of course.)

Marlins get two more in the third on two-out, bases loaded double from Miguel Cabrera. Man, that guy can hit. The main problem: Patterson walked Dan Uggla to load the bases and get to Cabrera. Ouch.

In that inning, Ramirez -- who beat Zimmerman in the rookie of the year vote by a hair last season -- hit an infield single to keep the year going. He's already 2 for 2 with two stolen bases and two runs scored. Zimmerman's next chance will likely come in the following inning.

We're in the bottom of the second. Fish 3, Nationals 0
