Miami, FL - Giancarlo Stanton homered leading off the ninth inning to tie it and Ed Lucas beat out double-play relay in the 10th to lift the Miami Marlins over the Washington Nationals 2-1 on Saturday night.

Stanton connected against Rafael Soriano to make it 1-all.

Steve Cishek (3-4) struck out Scott Hairston and Ryan Zimmerman with runners on second and third to end the Washington 10th.

Adeiny Hechavarria opened the Miami 10th by reaching second when third baseman Chad Tracy fielded his chopper but threw the ball into stands.

Craig Stammen (4-4) walked Jeff Mathis and Placido Polanco sacrificed both runners over. Justin Ruggiano was intentionally walked to load the bases.

Lucas grounded to second baseman Steve Lombardozzi, who threw to shortstop Ian Desmond for the forceout at second. Lucas beat the throw to first as the winning run scored.
