Bryce Harper, Ian Desmond and Denard Span all homered, powering the Washington Nationals to a 4-1 win over the New York Mets on Saturday.
Dan Haren (5-11) pitched seven innings for his first win since May 9, allowing one run and three hits.
Desmond and Span hit back-to-back homers against Dillon Gee (7-8) in the second inning and Harper followed with a two-run drive in the third.
Despite a tumultuous week, which included the Nationals firing their hitting coach and demoting former closer Drew Storen to the minors, Washington has won three of four games after dropping six straight following the All-Star break.
