Orioles 7, Nationals 3

WASHINGTON — Caleb Joseph homered and drove in three runs, J.J. Hardy had four hits and the Orioles beat the Nationals 7-3 on Monday night in a duel between neighboring first-place teams.

Nick Markakis homered for Baltimore, which trailed 3-1 before rallying for its eighth win in 11 games.

Hardy and Ryan Flaherty opened the seventh with successive doubles off Tanner Roark to tie it at 3. Former Ray Delmon Young followed with an RBI single — making him 9-for-17 as a pinch-hitter this season — and Adam Jones capped the uprising with another RBI single, the Orioles' sixth hit of the inning.

Joseph singled in two runs in the eighth to make it 7-3.

The game was a makeup of the July 8 contest that was postponed by rain. A sellout crowd of 42,181 — many wearing Oriole orange — showed up to watch teams located just 38 miles apart on I-295.

Washington's lead over the Braves in the NL East slipped to three games. Baltimore increased its margin over the Blue Jays to four games in the AL East.

Roark allowed five runs, his most in 16 starts since May 3. Wilson Ramos put the Nationals up 1-0 in the second inning with his first home run since July 9, also against the Orioles.
