PITTSBURGH (AP) — Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman homered and the Washington Nationals scored the last eight runs of the game in rallying for an 8-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night.

Cristian Guzman had two hits and two RBIs and Tyler Clippard (2-1) earned the win with three hitless innings of relief for Washington, which won the last two games to split the four-game series between the last-place teams.

Andrew McCutchen homered for the fourth time in three games and Ryan Doumit went 3 for 5 for the Pirates, who have lost seven of nine.

Mike MacDougal earned his eighth save by getting Delwyn Young, the only batter he faced, to ground out with two runners on.
