tonight from rainy south florida, the nats and marlins see each other for the first time if two months. it's an interdivision battle, as scott olsen returns just in time to face his former team. >> bob: it's been a typical south florida afternoon, lots of rain and hopefully a ballgame will get in.
7:01 pm
we will be delayed tonight getting a start, but some of the fans are all decked out. they don't allow umbrellas so you have to bring the ponchos here. we are in south florida. nationals, marlins. i think the nats owe these guys about six, beaten here, swept here first three games of the season. the marlins came in, did the same thing in d.c., so it's been a mismatch. >> rob: yeah, but i think over the last few weeks it's been proven by the nationals they can play with anybody. you take two out of three from the yankees, two out of three from the blue jays, then they should have taken two out of three from the red sox. they can play with everybody. they have to focus and they need some pay back out there on the field. >> bob: the nats could have won two of those three games in the baltimore series. they did put it all together yesterday. guys pitching to contact, then the defense helped out as well. >> rob: and that play just shows how heads up nick is. he catches the ball, then goes to third base and gets the
7:02 pm
double play. adam dunn gets all of that pitch. hernandez shouldn't have thrown it, but 19 home runs on the season. john lannan, the team has won four of his last five starts. he has emerged as the team ace. earlier in the season when he faced the marlins, he wasn't as confidence as he is. we didn't have closer mike macdougal. the same team that the marlins faced earlier in the season has changed in a significant way. >> bob: here's a note on john lannan, he ties tony arm is for second all-time national wins on the road. since steve came aboard three weeks ago, it's been a total change on this pitching staff. @

7:05 pm
we're back here at land shark stadium in florida, it's the first of three games with the florida marlins and i'm joined by steve mccatty. first of all, you've been doing a great job. scott olson makes his return to the big league roster in the starting rotation with the nationals. what can we expect from him? >> he's been up to i think it's 86 pitches in syracuse, we'll just watch, because this heat takes a lot out of you, we'll see how he's doing. if he spots his fastballs and gets some quick outs, he can get us a little deeper in the game. but i expect him to use his fastball, his velocity has been a little better than when he left. >> kind of the most mature i
7:06 pm
think you could say as far as baseball goes is john lannan. other than olsen who has over 100. he's really progressed into the ace of this staff. in june every start he's averaged over seven innings. kind of break down john lannan. what does he do on his side days? how's his approached change at the major league level? >> i can't say what his approach was before i got here, because i don't know what he was doing, but since he's been here when he goes out and works on stuff, very seldom do we throw off-speed pitches. we just want to locate his fastball. throws some change-ups. he's got a good breaking ball, slider and curveballs, but he'll do that and the flat groundwork they call it. now he works on that, but he just goes on and spots it. you could see when first coming up, he had such good command of that little sinker that he has. that's not overly hard, but if you can spot a nice little sinker, you know how tough it is. you were a gasser.
7:07 pm
you were probably up there saying, how does this guy get the guys out. if you can get the ball to move, it's a tough pitch to hit. he spots it well and gets some quick outs. he's determined. he's focused on the game. i told him, when you get done pitching, you should be more mentally drained than physically drained. he's been getting that way, he's really focused on what he's doing, concentrating the whole time. when he makes a mistake, he knows what it is right away when he does it. whereas before he might have missed it. >> the other guys, they're very young, they're very raw, they're very talented. >> it's same approach. throw your fastball over the plate. you got to be aggressive and throw strikes. i know there's some guys for them to be aggressive they have some more off-speed pitches. as long as you use them aggressively, in the zone, but you've got to get ahead. at some point you're going to end up, if you're behind you're going to have to throw your
7:08 pm
fastball. i just want them to get ahead with your fastball. if you're going to use the other pitch, that's fine. but we're throwing it for strikes. i could care less about a strikeout. i want an out. i'd like to see something happen within three pitches. but let's go out there, throw some fastballs, get some quick outs, and you're going to find out, especially if you get the first guy out, your outings are going to be a lot better. >> thanks for your time. i know you're very busy. we'll come back and visit with you later. take you up to first pitch. enjoy the game. since 1873,

coors banquet has been brewed in one place... and one place only: golden, colorado. it's followed one tradition: use the best high-country barley... and only rocky mountain water. and it's been brewed under one motto: never compromise. now maybe this means we're a little set in our ways. but we know a few guys who will drink to that. coors. the banquet beer.

up. observe here in the fifth at 4-3, murray the forehand lob. keep in mind he was up 3-0 to start the fifth set. later in the game, murray with the break point opportunity. and murray comes up with the forehand winner down the line. mom's excited. andy, i'd say relieved. next game, murray serving with match point, and andy, the three seed, drops to his knees and he winnings it in five sets. he is moving on to the quarterfinals and he spoke when it was over. >> i believe i can win wimbledon. that's not changed since the first match, but like i said, i'm going to have the play great tennis and i'm going to have to play some great tennis tonight to come back. stan was playing some unbelievable tennis at the start.

the conditions are very different at the open. >> roger federer chaseing pete sampras record of 14 grand slams. federer takes first set 6-4. 1-1 in the second set tie-break. soderling to the net. federer on the run with the backhand. federer making it look easy. he takes the second set 7-6. third set, federer down 4-5 in the tie-break. soderling comes up with the solid forehand up the line. federer, though, comes up with a forehand rip. ties the tie-break at 5-5. soderling serving after misses his first serve. soderling ends up double faulting. federer's previous shot wasn't affected. soderling, how else can you affect it. match point for federer.
7:14 pm
serving. soderling missing the return wide. and he defeats soderling yet again. 11 straight times. federer liking his form at wimbledon. >> you know, it was definitely a serving contest out there today. and not many rallies, so maybe not that much fun for the people, but i stayed calm, waited for my chance and thank god i came up with a good form when i had to in the breaker. and, you know, it was always going to be hard for him to keep serving those big second serves when it really mattered. that's why i wasn't particularly surprised he hit a double fault at 5-5 in the breaker. i'm playing well. i thought i played a great first week. today was different just because there were not that many rallies. it was a different type of match. it could be the same again in the next round, so i'm excited i'm through to another quarter. >> brazil dash's americas
