WASHINGTON (AP) -- Scooter Gennett and Khris Davis homered and Kyle Lohse pitched seven strong innings to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 4-2 in a meeting of division leaders Friday night.

Aramis Ramirez added a two-run single for the NL Central leading Brewers.

Lohse (10-4) picked up his first win since June 22. He allowed 10 hits, but just a run over seven innings as Washington went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position.

Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura was back in the lineup, a week after the sudden passing of his 9-month-old son, and went 1 for 4.

Bryce Harper had a homer and two singles for Washington, which began play percentage points ahead of Atlanta in the NL East. Francisco Rodriguez gave up Harper's ninth-inning homer, but picked up his 28th save.

Stephen Strasburg (7-7) allowed four runs on seven hits. He struck out nine in seven innings.
