Washington set a Nationals’ franchise record for runs scored in a 17-5 pounding of the Baltimore Orioles before 24,442 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

The Nationals blasted six home runs and 19 hits against five Orioles pitchers, scoring at least one run in every inning but the first and third frames. Six Nationals players collected at least 2 RBI.

The Nationals previous high of 15 runs was scored versus the Chicago Cubs on August 25, 2009 and at Atlanta Braves on July 20, 2008.

The Nationals last tallied at least 13 runs for first time since September 6, 2010, against the New York Mets, 13-3 win.

Danny Espinosa crushed a three-run shot and added an RBI triple and run-scoring single to set the tone for the Nationals offense, which had scored just 12 total runs the past five games.

Jayson Werth slammed two homers himself and added 4 RBI on 32nd birthday. It was the ninth career multi-homer game for Werth.

Wilson Ramos scored five runs and pounded a solo homer and his first triple of his career, an RBI three-bagger in the fourth.

Roger Bernadina connected on a two-run homer, his first since September 23, 2010, to make up for a misplay in center that allowed two runs to score in the third. Laynce Nix added a two-run shot in the ninth.

The Orioles got a two-run double from Matt Wieters but starter Jake Arreita and reliever Jason Berken were pummeled for 12 earned runs on 11 hits.
