WASHINGTON -- Bottom of the ninth, game tied and the potential winning run is on base. In these moments, there is nowhere Jayson Werth would rather be than walking to the plate with bat in hand. Werth hit a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the ninth after the Brewers tied it in the top of the inning and the Washington Nationals beat Milwaukee 5-4 on Sunday afternoon. Washingtons bullpen tossed five scoreless innings in relief of Gio Gonzalez until Rickie Weeks RBI single in the ninth off closer Rafael Soriano (1-1), who earned the win despite blowing his third save in 25 chances. Anthony Rendon reached on a fielders choice against Rob Wooten (1-4) with two outs in the ninth. Enter Werth. "Thats what its all about, right? Its why we do this," Werth said of the pressure-packed moment. "If you find yourself in that situation and you dont want to be there, I think youre in the wrong line of work." Taking advantage of a 3-1 count, the right fielder drilled the pitch into the left field corner, scoring Rendon from first. "Im still huffing and puffing," Rendon said. Washington took two of three in the series between teams that entered Sunday as division leaders. The Nationals have won four of five overall. Ryan Zimmerman had two hits, including a two-run homer, for the Nationals. The Brewers have lost 13 of 16. Tied with St. Louis entering Sunday, Milwaukee has led or held a share of first place of the NL Central every day since April 5. Pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett singled with one out against Soriano in the ninth, took second on Carlos Gomezs walk and scored on Weeks base hit. The Brewers were 1 of 8 with runners in scoring position before Weeks at-bat. Staked to a 3-1 lead, Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo allowed four runs and eight hits over six innings. Gallardo has not won since June 19 and is 0-2 with 7.33 ERA in his last four starts. "You always want to start on a good mode coming out of the break. This was a tough game," Gallardo said. "Youve got to forget about it. Were going home." Gonzalez allowed three runs on four hits with four walks and five strikeouts on 88 pitches over 3 1-3 innings. He left in the fourth with a runner at third and trailing 2-1. Gomez RBI groundout against Craig Stammen gave the Brewers 3-1 lead. Khris Davis and Jonathan Lucroy also drove in runs for Milwaukee. Gonzalez had his start pushed back one day after flight issues caused a delay in his return to Washington following the All-Star break. "Nine days off. It didnt help missing bullpen (session) and doing all that (work)," Gonzalez said. "Obviously my command and fastball location wasnt where I wanted it to be." Stammen retired all eight batters he faced after replacing Gonzalez. Zimmermans opposite field homer tied the game at 3-3. Jose Lobaton scored later in the inning with two outs on Gallardos wild pitch. Milwaukee loaded the bases with out in the second inning due in part to Zimmermans throwing error. Gonzalez escaped the jam with back-to-back strikeouts. The errant toss was the first error in 13 games for Zimmerman, who has battled right shoulder injuries, since returning to third base on June 30. The Nationals scored first on Ian Desmonds RBI hit in the second. They celebrated last on Werths clutch hit. "Any time you get a walk-off win its big for team morale," Stammen said. "Hopefully it will send us on a nice little winning streak."

Crosby and Kris Letang scored 16 seconds apart late regulation to tie the score for Pittsburgh after Vancouver grabbed a 4-2 lead. Evgeni Malkin and Brian Gibbons also scored for Pittsburgh (32-12-1). Jussi Jokinen added two assists, while Crosby had one of his own. Marc-Andre Fleury made 22 saves for the win. Chris Higgins, Zack Kassian and Christopher Tanev each had a goal and an assist, while Jason Garrison also scored for Vancouver (23-14-8). Eddie Lack made 31 saves as the Canucks lost their fifth game in a row. Tied 2-2 in the third, Vancouver looked to be on its way to a victory when Higgins beat Fleury through the five-hole on a breakaway with 6:53 left in regulation and Kassian batted a puck down off the rush and swatted it past the Penguins goalie at 6:36. But Letang scored with 1:11 left in regulation with Fleury on the bench and Crosby tied it 16 seconds later. Lack was called upon to make a couple big saves in overtime, including one off of James Neal on a 2-on-1. Lack made his second consecutive start for Vancouver in place of the injured Roberto Luongo, who suffered a suspected ankle injury against the Los Angeles Kings over the weekend. Luongo, who was named to Canadas Olympic team along with Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis earlier in the day, had just returned to the lineup after dealing with a groin issue. Tuesdays game marked the first for Crosby at Rogers Arena since his overtime goal in the gold-medal game at the 2010 Games. Crosby and Penguins linemate Chris Kunitz were also named to Canadas Olympic team earlier in the day. Down 2-1 after two periods, Vancouver tied the score at 7:39 of third when Tanevs shot from the point beat Fleury through traffic for his fifth of the season. Higgins then added his twelfth of the season before Kassian rounded out the scoring with his eighth as the Canucks picked up their first victory of 2014. Between the two goals Lack made a big blocker stop on Neal. With Pittsburgh leading 1-0 after the first period, Fleury made a breakaway save on Canucks forward Jannik Hansen early in the second. The Penguins bbroke back the other way with Malkin beating Lack on a shot through traffic from the slot for his 12th of the season at 5:25.dddddddddddd Fleury had a bit of luck a bit later in the period as Canucks defenceman Yannick Weber rang a shot off the post, before Penguins counterpart Letang found iron behind Lack. Letang had two more great chances to extend the lead, but Lack made a couple of huge saves before Garrison cut the Penguins advantage in half at 15:35. After Crosby blindly threw the puck in front of his own net right to Garrison, the Vancouver defenceman ripped a shot by Fleury for his fifth of the season and first in 14 games. Gibbons opened the scoring at 13:15 of the first period after Hamhuis failed to control the puck at the Pittsburgh blue-line. Playing on a line with Crosby and Kunitz, the undrafted 25-year-old free agent out of Boston College raced in alone and beat Lack through the five-hole for his second goal of the season in just his 11th NHL game. Pittsburghs No. 1-ranked power play went to work later in the period, but Vancouvers top-ranked penalty kill weathered the storm. Things nearly got worse for Hamhuis, who will be making his Olympic debut next month after playing seven times for Canada at other international tournaments, in the final minute when Malkin jumped on his turnover and nearly beat Lack from in close.
