Chris Davis went 4 for 4 with two home runs, and the Baltimore Orioles overcame three homers by Ryan Zimmerman to beat the Washington Nationals 9-6 on Wednesday night.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Ryan Zimmerman hit a grand slam, Bryce Harper added three hits and two stolen bases, and the Washington Nationals sent the San Diego Padres to their ninth straight loss, 11-7 on Sunday.
Stephen Strasburg allowed four runs over six innings. He matched his season-high with nine strikeouts as the Nationals won their fourth straight, the last three over San Diego.
Zimmerman's slam off Robbie Erlin put Washington ahead 5-1 in the third inning. Two batters later, Anthony Rendon hit a two-run homer.
Rendon and Strasburg had RBI singles during the Nationals' four-run fifth inning. Harper, chosen a day earlier for the NL All-Star team, hit an RBI single in the first.
The Nationals are four games over .500 for the first time since April 12. San Diego lost the final nine times on its 10-game road trip.
