 WASHINGTON (AP) - Bryce Harper delivered the first game-ending homer of his career, a two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday that lifted Washington to a 9-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates and ended the Nationals' losing streak at six.
Harper drove a hanging slider over the wall just to the left of straightaway center with two outs off Bryan Morris (4-4), who earlier allowed a single to Kurt Suzuki.
Harper raised his right fist overhead as he rounded first base and was mobbed by a bouncing pack of teammates as he reached home plate.
Ian Krol (1-0) earned the win, despite being part of poor relief in the ninth that allowed the Pirates to erase a four-run deficit.
It was an eventful afternoon that included three errors by Pittsburgh infielders in the first inning and the ejections of Washington manager Davey Johnson and Pirates manager Clint Hurdle.
METS 7, BRAVES 4
NEW YORK (AP) - John Buck drove in three runs and Zack Wheeler beat Atlanta for the second time in seven major league starts as the New York Mets split a four-game series.
Daniel Murphy and Marlon Byrd three hits apiece for the Mets. But the news wasn't all good for New York: Eric Young Jr., a spark in the leadoff spot since arriving last month, was pulled with pain in his right knee.
Wheeler (4-1) squandered a three-run lead by giving up homers to Dan Uggla and Freddie Freeman. But the prized rookie allowed only four hits in six innings after throwing 31 pitches in the first.
Kameron Loe (0-1) lost in relief.
MARLINS 5, ROCKIES 3
DENVER (AP) - Rob Brantly scored on a wild pitch to break up a scoreless game in the eighth inning, Donovan Solano homered in a four-run ninth, and the Miami Marlins waited out a 93-minute rain delay to beat Colorado.
The Rockies, who dropped three of four to the Marlins, lost star Carlos Gonzalez after the third inning when he aggravated a sprain of the middle finger on his right hand. He is day to day.
Reliever Adam Ottavino (0-2) struck out the first two batters he faced in the eighth before Brantly singled. Greg Dobbs, batting for reliever Dan Jennings (1-1) singled and Ottavino threw a wild pitch in the dirt.
Steve Cishek got his 20th save in 22 chances.
PADRES 10, BREWERS 8
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Carlos Quentin and Jesus Guzman homered and the San Diego Padres got 16 hits on their way to beating Milwaukee.
Will Venable added two doubles for San Diego and made a key catch in center field.
Edinson Volquez (8-8) worked into the sixth inning. Huston Street, the Padres' seventh pitcher, closed for his 18th save in 19 tries.
Yovani Gallardo (8-9) was tagged for six runs on eight hits and three walks in 3 2-3 innings.
