Drew Storen's first chance to put last season's playoff flop behind him didn't go so well Sunday.

The Washington Nationals reliever gave up a late lead against the Miami Marlins in a game that was stopped after 10 innings with the score tied 2-all.

Jake Jeffries drove in the tying run for Miami with an RBI groundout in the ninth against Storen.

Bryce Harper had two singles for the Nationals in a game that was delayed 66 minutes by rain. Anthony Rendon gave Washington a 2-1 lead with a two-run homer in the fifth.

Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann went three innings, allowing one run on two hits. Miami's Henderson Alvarez threw two shutout innings, giving up one hit and striking out two.
