Ian Desmond and Bryce Harper each homered and drove in two runs as the streaking Washington Nationals rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the San Francisco Giants 14-6 Sunday.

Jose Lobaton doubled among his three hits, drove in a run and scored twice for the Nationals, who took the rubber game against the Giants despite a labored four-inning outing from starter Stephen Strasburg.

Craig Stammen (4-4) allowed a run in two innings of relief for NL-East leading Washington, which has won 12 of 13. Danny Espinosa also homered for the Nationals.

Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt (3-2) allowed five hits and five runs in the sixth without retiring a batter after the departure of starter Ryan Vogelsong.

The Nationals' scored six runs in the sixth on eight hits, tying for their most hits in an inning since they began playing in D.C. in 2005.
