Nationals Pound On O’s

(Washington, DC)  –  Adam LaRoche hit a pair of homers to power the Nationals to a 9-3 win over the Orioles.  LaRoche connected on a three-run blast and a solo shot while Roger Bernadina added a solo homer and drove in two.  Tyler Moore lifted a two-run dinger of his own as Washington won its fourth in six games.  Zach Duke picked up the win in relief.  Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy each hit solo homers for Baltimore.  Kevin Gausman allowed seven runs in four frames to suffer the loss.  The O’s have dropped two of their last three.
