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.
