MLB: Washington 7, Arizona 4

May 31, 2008 at 12:44 AM   |   Comments

PHOENIX, May 31 (UPI) -- Willie Harris broke open a tie game with a three-run homer in the seventh Friday, leading the Washington Nationals past Arizona 7-4.

The Nationals handed the Diamondbacks their fifth straight loss -- Arizona's longest such skid of the season -- thanks to a solid effort from the bullpen and the second home run of the year for Harris.

Arizona starter Micah Owings (6-3) came out to start the seventh in a 3-3 game and, after retiring the leadoff batter, hit Rob Mackowiak with a pitch. Elijah Dukes singled Mackowiak to second and Harris then hit an 0-1 pitch over the wall in right.

Joel Hanrahan (1-2) got the win with 1 2/3 innings of relief. Jon Rauch worked a perfect ninth for his 12th save.

Orlando Hudson and Chad Tracy hit solo homers for Arizona.
