Anderson's 3 HRs help Marlins earn split against Nats, 14-3

MIAMI (AP) Brian Anderson circled the bases so quickly after his second home run Friday that he nearly overtook Jesus Aguilar, who playfully motioned his teammate to slow down.

No need to rush. Anderson and the Miami Marlins are on pace to end their 17-year playoff drought.
