WASHINGTON (AP) — Danny Espinosa hit a pair of homers and drove in four runs to lead the Washington Nationals to a 10-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.
Espinosa hit a three-run shot to cap the Nationals’ five-run third inning, and added another solo blast in the sixth, his 10th of the season. It was the second multihomer game of his career. He also hit two against the New York Mets on Sept. 6, 2010.
Michael Morse added two RBI on three hits for Washington, which snapped a six-game losing streak against the Phillies and won for just the second time in the past 10 games.
Domonic Brown and John Mayberry hit back-to-back homers to lead off the fifth inning for Philadelphia.
