Werth's double in 9th helps Nats beat Brewers 5-4

Posted: Updated:
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jayson Werth hit a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the ninth after the Brewers tied it in the top of the inning and the Washington Nationals beat Milwaukee 5-4 on Sunday afternoon.

   Washington's bullpen tossed five scoreless innings in relief of Gio Gonzalez until Rickie Weeks' RBI single in the ninth off closer Rafael Soriano (1-1), who earned the win despite blowing his third save in 25 chances.

   Anthony Rendon reached on a fielder's choice against Rob Wooten (1-4) with two outs in the ninth. He scored from first on Werth's drive into the left field corner.

   Washington took two of three in the series between teams that entered Sunday as division leaders.

   Ryan Zimmerman had two hits, including a two-run homer, for the Nationals.
