Bryce Harper drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the visiting Washington Nationals 4-3 in 10 innings on Saturday night.

The Nationals intentionally walked Kyle Schwarber to put runners on first and second with no outs in the 10th, and Whit Merrifield pinch-ran for Schwarber. J.T. Realmuto flied out to center, and Johan Rojas, who started the inning on second, moved to third on the play. Harper then sent a ball to left-center to score Rojas.

Bryson Stott and Kody Clemens homered for the Phillies, who have won five of their past six games.

CJ Abrams and Ildemaro Vargas each had three hits for the Nationals, who have lost four straight.

Gregory Soto (1-1) pitched one inning for the win. Kyle Finnegan (1-3) took the loss.

Jesse Winker's RBI single gave the Nationals a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth, but Clemens homered to center off Finnegan with two outs in the bottom of the inning to tie it.

Washington took an early 1-0 lead. Abrams led off the first with a single, went to third on a single by Vargas and scored when Joey Meneses hit a ground-ball single to left.

In the bottom of the fourth, Harper and Alec Bohm opened the frame with singles. Harper stole third base and scored when Stott grounded into a double play, tying things at 1-all.

Jacob Young singled with one out in the top of the fifth. With Young moving on a hit-and-run, Abrams singled to right, and Young came all the way around to score the go-ahead run as Nick Castellanos threw Abrams out at second.

With one out in the seventh, Stott homered to right-center on a 3-1 pitch to tie the game again and end Nationals starter MacKenzie Gore's night. Gore allowed two runs on three hits in his 6 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out three.

Rojas singled leading off the bottom of the eighth and went to second on an errant pickoff attempt. Realmuto reached on an infield single, putting runners on first and second with one out, but Robert Garcia struck out Harper and Hunter Harvey retired Bohm on a lineout.

Phillies starter Cristopher Sanchez went seven innings, giving up two runs and eight hits. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter.
