Bases-loaded hit-by-pitch gives Nationals win

WASHINGTON (AP) — Adam Dunn was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, allowing the go-ahead run to score and giving the Washington Nationals a 5-4 victory over the Florida Marlins on Saturday.

Josh Willingham had a triple, homer and two RBIs, and Willie Harris also homered for the Nationals. Matt Capps closed the ninth inning for his major league-leading 12th save.

With the score tied at 4 in the bottom of the eighth, the Nationals loaded the bases on reliever Burke Badenhop (0-4) on a hit batter, a wild throw on an infield single that allowed runners to reach second and third, and an intentional walk. Renyal Pinto was then called in from the bullpen to face Dunn, and hit his right arm on a 1-2 pitch to score the run.

Tyler Clippard (5-0) threw 1 1-3 innings and got the win despite giving up his first home run of the year, a two-run shot by Gaby Sanchez that gave Florida a 4-3 lead in the seventh.
