Nationals win wild 11-inning game against Arizona

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Rick Ankiel drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out walk in the 11th inning and Mike Morse followed with a grand slam, leading the Washington Nationals to a wild 9-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Managers Jim Riggleman of the Nationals and Kirk Gibson of the Diamondbacks were among four ejections, and Washington was hit by a pitch four times, including second baseman Danny Espinosa twice.

Arizona almost added to its list of 17 comeback wins, tied for the major league lead.

The Diamondbacks scored three times in the ninth inning to tie it at 4, but the Nationals responded in the 11th.

PHOENIX (AP) -- Washington Nationals starting pitcher Jason Marquis was ejected from Sunday's game in the bottom of the sixth inning for hitting the Arizona Diamondbacks' Justin Upton with a pitch.

It marked the fourth time Upton has been hit with pitches in the four-game series and came after home plate umpire Rob Drake warned Arizona starter Ian Kennedy after he hit the Nationals' Jayson Werth in the left upper arm with a pitch in the top of the fifth.

Kennedy hit Washington's Mike Morse two batters after Werth but was not ejected. That got manager Jim Riggleman out of the dugout to argue, and Riggleman was tossed when he came out to protest Marquis being ejected.

Werth has been hit three times in the series and missed Friday's game due to elbow pain.
