Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Bryce Harper finished with a two-run home run and drove in three, as the Washington Nationals pounded the St. Louis Cardinals, 8-1, in the opener of a four-game series.

Jayson Werth added two hits, two RBI and scored three times for the Nationals, who have won two in a row to erase the memory of a five-game skid. Jesus Flores also knocked in two for the NL East leaders.

Edwin Jackson (8-9) tossed eight strong innings, scattering four hits and walking two with an unearned run while fanning 10.

Jaime Garcia (3-6) lasted just 5 1/3 frames, charged with nine hits and six runs in defeat for the Cardinals, losers of three straight.
