PITTSBURGH, May 4 (UPI) -- Tyler Moore's ninth-inning sacrifice fly scored Ryan Zimmerman with the decisive run Saturday, polishing off Washington's comeback 5-4 win over Pittsburgh.

With the score tied 4-4 in the top of the ninth, Tony Watson (1-1) hit Zimmerman with a pitch with one out.

The Nationals third-baseman went to second on an Adam Laroche single, advanced to third on a double steal and came home with the tie-breaking run when Moore lofted a fly ball to right field.

Washington's Wilson Ramos had erased a 4-2 deficit with a two-run single in the sixth inning.

Tyler Clippard (2-1) notched the victory and Rafael Soriano earned his 10th save for the Nationals, who evened their three-game series.

Clint Barmes and Starling Marte each socked a two-run homer for the Pirates.
