PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jayson Werth homered and drove in four runs, and Tanner Roark pitched seven strong innings to lead the Washington Nationals to a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

Ryan Zimmerman also went deep and had two RBIs, Ian Desmond knocked in two runs, and Anthony Rendon had three hits and an RBI for Washington, which won the last two games of the series and maintained at least a share of first place in the NL East entering the All-Star break.

The Phillies finished a forgettable first half in familiar fashion, producing little offense against Roark and Ross Detwiler. Philadelphia scored two unearned runs off Aaron Barrett in the ninth to end with three runs or fewer for the 49th time this season.
