MIAMI (AP) - Jeff Baker hit a two-out RBI single to cap a four-run rally in the ninth inning by the Miami Marlins, who extended their winning streak to five games by beating the Washington Nationals 7-6.
Miami trailed 6-1 in the seventh. Washington's Rafael Soriano (2-1), who earned his 200th career save Sunday, took the mound in the ninth with a 6-3 lead and blew a save for the fourth time this season
Casey McGehee led off with a four-pitch walk, Garrett Jones doubled and Marcell Ozuna hit an RBI single. Jarrod Saltalamacchia's sacrifice fly made it 6-5, and a wild pitch advanced Ozuna to second base.
Adeiny Hechavarria ended an 11-pitch at-bat with a tying triple and pinch-hitter Donovan Solano was hit by a pitch.
Left-hander Jerry Blevins replaced Soriano and struck out Christian Yelich. Baker, who entered in the eighth, then lined a hit over left fielder Bryce Harper that hit the base of the fence.
