MLB: Arizona 8, Washington 4

PHOENIX, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Barry Enright limited Washington to two runs over six innings Thursday and Arizona capitalized on three errors to defeat the Nationals 8-4.

The Diamondbacks survived four solo homers by Washington to earn a split of the four-game series.


Arizona produced three unearned runs and did not trail after Rusty Ryal reached first when center fielder Roger Bernadina misplayed a fly ball in the second inning. That allowed Adam LaRoche to score from second and Bobby Crosby then doubled home Ryal.

Justin Upton had two RBI for the Diamondbacks with singles in both the fourth and fifth innings.

Enright (3-2) gave up six hits and struck out three while throwing 99 pitches. He also struck out in the fifth inning, only to make it to first base when the ball got past catcher Wil Nieves.

Stephen Drew raced in from third on what was ruled a wild pitch for the third run of the inning.

Starter Ross Detwiler (0-2) took the loss, giving up seven runs (four earned) on nine hits over four innings.

Ryan Zimmerman had two of Washington's four homers, running his total to 21.
