D'backs fall late to Nats, lose fifth straight

WASHINGTON (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks proved they could hang with the NL East-leading Washington Nationals. That is right up until the last at-bat, once again.

The Nationals won their ninth straight game when pinch-hitter Anthony Rendon singled home Bryce Harper in the ninth inning Wednesday night for a 3-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Arizona has lost five straight, the last three to Washington, two by a single run. Twice this series the Diamondbacks hit a game-tying home run in the final innings only to see the Nationals ultimately end up with the victory.
