PITTSBURGH — Stephen Strasburg struck out eight in seven innings and the Washington Nationals won a game he started for the first time since opening day by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-4 Saturday.


Tyler Moore hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth inning off Tony Watson (1-1) Wilson Ramos’ RBI single in the sixth tied the game at 4 after Pittsburgh built a two-run lead.


A day after striking out four times upon being activated from the disabled list, Zimmerman scored three runs.


Starling Marte and Clint Barmes each hit two-run homers for the Pirates.


Marlins 2, Phillies 0


PHILADELPHIA — Jose Fernandez pitched one-hit ball and struck out nine in seven dominant innings, leading the Miami Marlins over the Philadelphia Phillies for his first win in the majors.


Marcell Ozuna hit his first career homer and Chris Valaika connected for the first time in three years to stop Cole Hamels.


The 20-year-old Fernandez (1-2) allowed just a single by Freddy Galvis up the middle in the first. He then retired the next 17 batters.


Fernandez walked Galvis in the seventh, and followed that up by striking out Chase Utley, Ryan Howard and Delmon Young.


Fernandez was lifted after throwing 82 pitches. Mike Dunn pitched a perfect eighth and Steve Cishek finished off the one-hitter to get his fourth save in five tries.


Reds 6, Cubs 4


CHICAGO — Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco each had a sacrifice fly in Cincinnati’s four-run eighth inning, and the Reds rallied.


Cincinnati had just one hit in the decisive rally, but took advantage of another woeful outing by reliever Carlos Marmol to secure its first winning road series of the season. The Reds held on for a 6-5 victory in the opener on Friday when Darwin Barney struck out with the bases loaded to end the game.


Alfonso Soriano hit a pair of two-run homers for the Cubs, who have lost four of five.


Cardinals 7, Brewers 6


MILWAUKEE — Jon Jay homered and drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth and Allen Craig and Daniel Descalso each hit home runs to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a win over the Milwaukee Brewers.


Shane Robinson singled to center and then took second on center fielder Carlos Gomez’s fielding error off Jim Henderson (2-1) who started the ninth for Milwaukee with the game tied.
