Chen to pitch for friend Fernandez against Nationals

WASHINGTON -- Wei-Yin Chen will be pitching with a friend in mind when he takes the mound on Saturday at Nationals Park against Washington.

The Miami Marlins left-hander was in the starting rotation with right-hander Jose Fernandez, who died Sunday in a boating accident off the Miami coast. A private memorial service was held Thursday in Florida.

"A lot of moments keep coming back to my mind," Chen said through a translator Friday, standing by his locker in the Marlins clubhouse. "He is such a passionate athlete. I hope I can have the same smile" as he did after the game.
