WASHINGTON, April 25 (UPI) -- Gio Gonzalez allowed one hit over eight innings Thursday, carrying Washington to an 8-1 win over Cincinnati that snapped the Nationals' four-game skid.

Danny Espinosa drove in three runs for Washington, two of them with a third-inning homer, but it was the work of Gonzalez that allowed the Nationals to dominate.

Gonzalez (2-1) struck out seven and walked two while throwing 112 pitches. The only run he allowed came on a homer by Joey Votto in the fourth.

Rafael Soriano worked the ninth for Washington in a non-save situation.

Denard Span had three of the Nationals' 12 hits. He drove in a run with an infield single in the second and tripled in two more in the eighth.

Washington took control with a four-run third, which Espinosa finished off with his two-run blast.

Bronson Arroyo (2-2) took the loss, giving up six runs on nine hits in six innings.
