PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ryan Zimmerman singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the 10th inning, and Jayson Werth homered and had three RBIs to lead the Washington Nationals to a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.

Ross Detwiler (1-2), one of six Washington pitchers, tossed a scoreless ninth to earn the victory. Philadelphia's season-best, five-game winning streak was snapped.

Rafael Soriano struck out the side in the 10th for his 22nd save.

Washington's Stephen Strasburg struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings and was in line for the victory before Ben Revere's RBI single with two outs in the eighth tied it 3-3.

Marlon Byrd had two hits and two RBIs, and Revere had a pair of hits for the Phillies.

The Nationals went ahead in the 10th against Jake Diekman (3-3).
