WASHINGTON (AP) -- Left-hander Gio Gonzalez homered, providing all the offense necessary to back his six scoreless innings, and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 3-0 Wednesday night.

Gonzalez (1-0), a 21-game winner in 2012 who finished third in NL Cy Young Award voting, allowed only two hits, along with five strikeouts and two walks.

His solo shot to left field off Kevin Slowey (0-1) came with one out in the fifth. Slowey gave up one run and four hits in 5 1-3 innings.

After hitting two homers in Game 1, Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper went 2 for 4 with a double. The 2012 NL Rookie of the Year scored on Ryan Zimmerman's single in the eighth off reliever A.J. Ramos.

Rafael Soriano got his second save, completing Washington's second straight shutout of the Marlins.
