(Colo.)- Desmond's Homer Lifts Nationals Past Rockies 4-3
WASHINGTON (AP) - After a replay review, Ian Desmond's solo homer provided the go-ahead run and the Washington Nationals rallied from a three-run deficit for 4-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night, sweeping the three-game series.
Jayson Werth also homered for Washington, which has won a season-high five straight.
Right-hander Matt Belisle (2-4) came on to face Desmond with one out in the seventh. Desmond's hit appeared to bounce off the top of the wall in right center, then off the railing in front of the first row and onto the field.
He ended up on third, but after a review that took 3:42, Desmond was given his 15th homer.
Washington's Doug Fister (7-2) allowed three runs on seven hits over seven innings.
Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his 20th save.
Michael McKenry hit a three-run homer for Colorado.
