TORONTO, June 11 (UPI) -- Edwin Jackson tamed the Blue Jays on three hits over eight innings Monday, staking the Washington Nationals to an 6-3 interleague win over Toronto.

Jackson (3-3) allowed a pair of runs, working around three walks while striking out three for the Nationals, who won their fourth straight to open a three-game series at Rogers Center.

Adam LaRoche, Rick Ankiel and Jesus Flores each homered and Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with an RBI single for the National League East-leading Nationals.

Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow (7-4) faced only one batter before exiting with an injury but still sustained the loss. The right-hander strained an oblique muscle after walking Steve Lombardozzi to open the game.

Chad Beck relieved and gave up three runs (two earned) over the next 3 2/3 frames.

Yan Gomes belted a two-run homer and Colby Rasmus added solo shot for Toronto.
