Final Score: Washington 6, San Francisco 2
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jayson Werth smacked a solo homer
among his three RBI and scored a pair of runs as the Washington Nationals
defeated the San Francisco Giants, 6-2, in the third installment of a four-
Tanner Roark (5-4) allowed two runs on seven hits over six-plus innings for
the Nationals, who have won eight of their last nine games. Adam LaRoche had a
two-run single in the triumph.
Matt Cain (1-4) surrendered four runs on three hits and five walks over five
frames for San Francisco, which has dropped the first three games of this
series on the heels of its five-game winning streak.
"We've hit a bump here in the road and you're going to have that," Giants
manager Bruce Bochy said.
The Nationals opened the scoring with three runs in the first and hung on from
Denard Span, Anthony Rendon and Werth all walked to begin the game and load
the bases before Adam LaRoche squirted a grounder through the hole on the
right side to bring home Span and Rendon. Ryan Zimmerman then bounced one back
to Cain, which allowed Werth to score.
"We got some big hits in the first inning there to kind of set the tone for
the game," Werth said. "It was a good way to start the game for us and we were
able to tack on some runs."
San Francisco got on the board in the fourth when Buster Posey led off with
a single and scored two batters later when Brandon Crawford tripled into the
gap in left center.
Washington, though, got the run back in the fifth when Werth smacked a one-out
solo shot into the seats in left to make it 4-1.
Pablo Sandoval's two-out RBI single in the seventh cut the gap to 4-2, but
Werth's two-out, two-run, bases-loaded roller back up the box in the ninth
increased the margin to 6-2.
Washington was 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position, while the Giants
finished 1-for-5 with RISP ... Werth's homer was his sixth of the season.
