"I'm not making the pitches when I need to make them," Turner said. "The biggest thing is not commanding my fastball the way I need to. It's very frustrating."
Turner has not pitched at least six innings in his last six starts going 0-3 with a 5.28 ERA. He was 3-3 with a 2.68 ERA in his first 12 starts of the season.
"Over the past few weeks it looks like it's all coming together and then the next inning it all falls apart," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.
It didn't look good for
Stephen Strasburg early, but he was able to settle down. Strasburg got past a shaky start and pitched six innings to earn his first victory in nearly a month as the Washington Nationals.
"I knew if I kept the game close we could bust it open," Strasburg said.
"We know we have to pitch and play almost perfect to win and we weren't able to do that," Redmond said.
Ramos hit a solo homer in the second.
"I got a fast ball and I was able to get all of it," Ramos said.
The Marlins responded in the bottom half with three runs as Strasburg was erratic.
Strasburg gave up two hits, walked two and balked twice. After his second balk, he retired 10 in a row.
"Obviously, it can go two ways and you can let something like (the balks) affect you the next inning, but the way we've been swinging the bats I didn't want to do that," Strasburg said.
Zimmerman hit his 20th homer in the third. He has five homers in his last six games and has hit home runs in back-to-back games for the first time since hitting in three straight from Sept. 7-10, 2012.
Desmond tied the game at 3 with an RBI double.
The Nationals regained the lead in the fifth on an RBI single by Ramos ending Turner's outing.
"Obviously the team, in order to get the lead, is battling and then to give it right back is just frustrating," Turner said.
Anthony Rendon hit an RBI triple for a 5-3 advantage later in the fifth and Desmond's RBI triple to deep center field pushed the lead to 6-3 in the sixth.
Miami got a run back in the sixth on a pinch-hit RBI single by Greg Dobbs.
