Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Tyler Moore's tie-breaking sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth inning helped send the Washington Nationals to a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the middle test of a three-game set at PNC Park.

Wilson Ramos contributed a two-run single and both Adam LaRoche and Ian Desmond also had sac flies for Washington, which had lost four of six coming in.

Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg surrendered a two-run homers to Starling Marte and Clint Barmes, but got through his final two innings of work unscathed. He matched a season-high with seven innings pitched and struck out eight while scattering five hits.

Tyler Clippard (2-1) and Rafael Soriano each pitched a scoreless inning of relief, with Soriano notching his 10th save in the victory.
