MIAMI — Jayson Werth’s homer scored three unearned runs against Jose Fernandez, and the Washington Nationals rallied to beat the Miami Marlins 6-3 Wednesday.

Two errors in the sixth inning by Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia helped the Nationals overcome a 3-0 deficit. Pinch-hitter Zach Walters broke a tie in the eighth inning against Mike Dunn (0-2) with his second career homer — and his second in as many nights.

The Nationals took the rubber game of the three-game series despite being without four starters, including Bryce Harper, a late scratch because of a tight left quadriceps.

Fernandez, betrayed by his defense, departed for a pinch-hitter after seven innings. He allowed four hits and three runs, all unearned, with 10 strikeouts and no walks.

Drew Storen (1-0) got the final two outs in the seventh, and Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his third save in as many chances.
