PHOENIX (AP) -

Ian Desmond and Tyler Moore each lined two-run singles in the ninth inning to break open a close game, helping the Washington Nationals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1 on Wednesday.
    
Nationals starter Doug Fister locked into a pitcher's duel with Brandon McCarthy before Washington poured it on in the ninth.
    
Washington loaded the bases against Brad Ziegler (0-1) and Desmond ended the right-hander's scoreless streak at 18 1-3 innings with a single through the hole on the left side. Moore made it 5-1 with a broken-bat single up the middle.
    
Jayson Werth homered and Tyler Clippard (4-3) tossed one scoreless inning for Washington.
    
Aaron Hill homered and made several spectacular plays at second base for the Diamondbacks.
