    Werth then came through with his fourth career grand slam, and first with the Nationals. The bases were loaded with one out when Werth hit the ball over the left-center field wall for the fourth grand slam of his career. Werth delivered a slam in the same frame in Wednesday's 10-7 comeback victory. The Nationals won that game 10-7 on Werth's go-ahead grand slam in the eighth, and this time he connected in the third a two-run shot off Tom Koehler that put Washington ahead 2-0. 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 came into the game having driven in one run all season, but was responsible for five Wednesday, including an RBI groundout in the fifth after Rendon's triple. That made it 5-4. Dropped to seventh in the batting order, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year culminated a 10-pitch at-bat against left-hander Brad Hand in the fourth inning by turning on a 94 mph offering and hitting it over the foul pole and into the fifth row of the third deck beyond right field.
