Nats wait out rain to rally past Marlins

Jayson Werth tied the game in the bottom of the ninth inning with a solo homer and pinch-hitter Corey Brown won it in the 10th with an RBI single, as the Washington Nationals rallied past the Miami Marlins, 7-6.

The Marlins held a 6-5 lead heading into the bottom of the ninth when the game was delayed due to rain. When the contest got back underway over 2 1/2 hours later, Werth homered off Heath Bell to tie the game.

The Nationals won the contest during their next at-bat. Chad Gaudin (3-2) gave up singles to Adam LaRoche and Ian Desmond before intentionally walking Danny Espinosa to load the bases. LaRoche was thrown out at home when Kurt Suzuki grounded into a fielder's choice. Brown stepped to the plate and hit a fly ball to right. Giancarlo Stanton tried to make the catch on the run, but the ball bounced out of his glove.
