Nationals' comeback bid falls short in loss to Orioles

WASHINGTON (AP) Daniel Murphy tried to set the stage for a dramatic rally, but even the first grand slam of his career wasn't enough juice to get the Washington Nationals out of their funk.

Murphy hit a grand slam as part of a five-run ninth inning, but the Nationals fell short in a 10-8 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. Washington has lost three in a row to Baltimore this week and six of its past nine overall.

Despite that, the Nationals still lead the NL East by seven games over the Miami Marlins, and the almost-comeback had manager Dusty Baker feeling better in spite of another defeat.
