Harper's 3 HRs, 5 RBIs lift Nationals over Marlins 7-5

WASHINGTON (AP) Bryce Harper hit three home runs in a game for the first time and had five RBIs in his finest day with the Nationals, and Washington beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 Wednesday for their third straight series win.

Harper hit a 393-foot solo shot off the second inning, a 442-foot, two-run drive in the third and 445-foot bases-empty shot in the fifth, the last two reaching the second deck. Each of the home runs came on the second pitch of the at-bat off Tom Koehler (2-3), and they raised Harper's season total to eight.

With an opportunity to tie major league record of four homers in a game, Harper hit a run-scoring groundout to second base against Sam Dyson in the seventh.
