WASHINGTON (AP) — Jayson Werth hit a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning off Carlos Marmol after Bryce Harper’s upper-deck, three-run homer started a comeback from an early deficit, and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 10-7 Wednesday night.

Werth and Harper each delivered his first homer of the season as Washington overcame deficits of 5-0 and 7-6 in a topsy-turvy game. Werth’s shot off Marmol (0-1) came with one out, after the reliever allowed a single, hit a batter, then intentionally walked Anthony Rendon to load the bases.

It made a winner of Tyler Clippard (1-1), who yielded Garrett Jones’ tiebreaking RBI double in the top of the eighth after walking a pair of batters. Rafael Soriano worked the ninth for his second save.
