Masked Marlins try to spoil Martin Prado's postgame interview, but he'll have none of it

The Marlins beat the Nationals, 5-1, on Thursday afternoon, tagging Nats ace Max Scherzer for five earned runs on the day. Miami third baseman Martin Prado had a solid 2-for-4 day, driving in a run and continuing to be a thorn in Scherzer's side (coming into Thursday Prado owned a .474/.737/1.211 career line against him).  
After the game, FOX Sports Florida spoke with Prado about his success against Scherzer, his defense and other usual topics … which gave two of Prado's teammates an opportunity to (try) and prank him by wearing masks. Specifically, one wore a Creature from the Black Lagoon mask and the other donned a monkey head -- but Prado managed to completely tune them out and conduct the interview.'s Joe Frisaro reports that the two players trying to distract Prado might've been Miguel Rojas and Chris Johnson, for what it's worth. 
Being able to ignore that type of attempt is the mark of a true professional, but we have to hand it to those masked intruders -- that was a pretty solid effort! View the full video above to watch the scene unfold.
