Recap: Toronto vs. Washington

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Tyler Moore hit two home runs and knocked in the first five RBI of his career to lead the Washington Nationals past the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-2, and complete the sweep of a three-game interleague series.

Stephen Strasburg (8-1) gave up two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out eight over six innings for Washington, which earned its sixth straight win, including a three-game sweep over the Boston Red Sox.

"It's good to get going on the road," said Nats outfielder Bryce Harper. "We went 6-0 against two good teams. It's a good feeling."

Strasburg did not return to the mound for the seventh inning after having a finger on his right hand looked at in the dugout.

It was the Nationals' first undefeated, multi-city road trip since the Montreal Expos swept back-to-back three-game sets in Houston and Atlanta from July 4-10, 1988.

Kyle Drabek (4-7) allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks through 4 1/3 innings before leaving with an elbow injury after recording the first out in the fifth.

"He felt a popping sensation in the back of his elbow," Blue Jays manager John Farrell said about Drabek. "Most encouragingly is that he felt no discomfort in the training room afterwards, but when he felt the pop on the mound it was clear that we had to take him out for precautionary reasons."

Jose Bautista hit a homer for the Blue Jays, who have lost six of their last seven games.

Washington struck first in the second inning after Michael Morse led off the frame with a single that was followed by an Ian Desmond walk. Danny Espinosa's groundout to first moved the runners up to second and third before both crossed the plate on Moore's ground-rule double to center field.

After the Nationals stranded a man on third in the top of the third inning, Toronto managed to tie the game in the bottom of the frame when Rajai Davis slapped a leadoff triple into the right-center field gap and came home on Brett Lawrie's grounder to short.

Two batters later, Bautista hammered a ball over the left-field wall to knot the score at 2-2.

Washington, though, quickly regained the lead for good in the fourth inning when Moore followed Espinosa's one-out single with a blast into the left-field bleachers for his first career home run.

Moore's solo shot to straightaway center field in the sixth inning and Desmond's blast into the second deck in left in the eighth extended the Nationals' cushion to 6-2.

Toronto then stranded a runner on second in the sixth and eighth innings while also leaving a man on third in the seventh to finish the game hitting 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.
