Nationals 2, Cardinals 1

WASHINGTON — Bryce Harper hit a slump-busting home run, Danny Espinosa also went deep and the Nationals got seven strong innings from right-hander Joe Ross. Washington trailed 1-0 in the sixth inning before Harper ended a 4-for-33 skid with a shot far beyond the wall in rightfield. It was his 12th home run of the season, the first since May 13. The light-hitting Espinosa snapped a tie in the seventh with a drive to right.
