Gomes homers to lead Nationals past Rockies 3-2

DENVER (AP) - Jonny Gomes hit his first home run for Washington, Jayson Werth delivered a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Nationals beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 Sunday.

The Rockies split the four-game series and went 2-5 on their homestand. Eliezer Alfonzo got three hits for Colorado and Troy Tulowitzki had two.

Washington scored the deciding run off reliever Matt Belisle (5-4). Danny Espinosa opened the eighth with a double and moved to third on Ryan Zimmerman's groundout. After an intentional walk to Michael Morse, Werth singled sharply to left field.

Tyler Clippard (2-0) got the win in relief and Drew Storen pitched the ninth for his 29th save.
