WASHINGTON -- Pinch-hitter Scott Hairstons sacrifice fly with one out in the 11th inning scored Jayson Werth to give the Washington Nationals a 6-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday night and complete a three-game sweep. Brooks Laich Jersey . Werth, who had missed the last five games with a bothersome shoulder, entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the ninth and doubled leading off the 11th against Brandon Cumpton (3-4). Werth went to third on Denard Spans grounder to first. Hairston then sent Cumptons first pitch to deep left and Werth scored easily after the catch. Ross Detwiler (2-2) pitched two innings for the win. Span and Anthony Rendon had two hits each for National League East-leading Washington, which has won six straight. The Pirates have lost five straight for the first time since September 2012. Both closers blew save chances in the ninth. Trailing 4-2 entering the inning, the Pirates got one run on a wild pitch and took a 5-4 lead on Gregory Polancos two-run double off Rafael Soriano. Washington rallied against Matt Melancon in their half, however. Asdrubal Cabreras one-out single off the glove of a diving Neil Walker scored Werth, who had walked, from second with the tying run. Washington starter Doug Fister allowed two unearned runs while striking out five. He hasnt given up an earned run in his last 22 1-3 innings. The Nationals trailed 2-1 before a successful challenge started a seventh-inning rally. A pitch to Michael Taylor was called a foul ball by home plate umpire Andy Fletcher as Taylor started towards first. Manager Matt Williams challenged, saying the 2-1 pitch hit Taylors hand, and the call was overturned upon review. Pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsen and Span singled to load the bases. Cabrera, facing reliever Jared Hughes, grounded to first baseman Ike Davis. Davis threw high to home, the ball deflecting off Russell Martins glove as Taylor scored. As the ball rolled up the third-base line, Frandsen raced home as well, putting Washington ahead 3-2. Rendon then grounded to Pedro Alvarez, who threw high to home for another error, allowing Span to score the Nationals fourth run. Errors by Washingtons Ian Desmond and Rendon helped the Pirates take a 2-0 lead in the sixth. The Nationals cut it to 2-1 in the sixth on Desmonds two-out RBI-single. TRAINERS ROOM Pirates: RHP Charlie Morton was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right hip inflammation. Nationals: RF Jayson Werth, who sat out the last five games due to a bothersome right shoulder, walked as a pinch hitter in the ninth and stayed in the game in right. UP NEXT Pirates: RH Vance Worley (5-2, 2.51) goes against Atlanta on Monday as Pittsburgh opens a three-game homestand. Hes 1-2 with a 5.81 ERA in seven career appearances (five starts) against the Braves. Nationals: Jordan Zimmermann (8-5, 2.92) opposes visiting Arizona in the first of four games. He is 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA in his last three starts. 21:17ET 17-08-14 Zach Hyman Jersey .

Williams, seeking a record seventh Key Biscayne title, improved to 16-2 against Sharapova and hasnt lost to her favourite foil since 2004. "I have always felt when Im playing at my best, then its hard for people to beat me," Williams said. Rafael Nadal could say the same. He advanced to the semifinals by hitting a flurry of forehand winners down the stretch to beat Milos Raonic 4-6, 6-2, 6-4. On Saturday, the No. 1-ranked Williams will try for a record seventh Key Biscayne title against No. 2 Li Na, who overcame 40 unforced errors to beat Dominika Cibulkova 7-5, 2-6, 6-3. Williams is 10-1 against Li. No. 7-seeded Tomas Berdych advanced to Fridays semifinals, beating Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine 6-4, 7-6 (3). Berdych was the Key Biscayne runner-up in 2010. The No. 1-ranked Nadal, who is 0-3 in Key Biscayne finals, needs one more win to get there again. His opponent Friday night will be No. 7-seeded Tomas Berdych, who advanced by beating No. 22 Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-4, 7-6 (3). Nadal has beaten Berdych 16 times in a row over the past seven years. "This tournament is a tournament where I really feel the love of the people so much," Nadal said, "so Im going to try my best to keep playing well." Three-time champion Novak Djokovic will play in the other semifinal Friday against No. 20-seeded Kei Nishikori, who eliminated Roger Federer on Wednesday. The No. 1-ranked Williams won with a superior serve and better returns. She hit nine aces and broke five times, helping her rebound from deficits of 4-1 in the first set and 2-0 in the second. Williams earned hher 14th consecutive victory against a top-10 player. Tyler Bozak Jersey. Her opponent in Saturdays final will be either Australian Open champion Li Na or Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia. Williams first won Key Biscayne in 2002 and is the defending champion. She has worn Miami Dolphins orange and turquoise throughout the tournament and considers it her home event because she lives 90 minutes up the road. "When I grew up I always wanted to play here," she said. "I guess I just dont want to let go. Its my favourite stop on the tour. Its home. All my friends come. So its perfect for me." There was no evidence of a home-court advantage at the start, when Williams failed to convert four early break-point chances and fell behind. Sharapova cracked a succession of winners from the baseline and earned applause from Williams after besting her in one exchange. But Williams broke back when Sharapova committed three consecutive backhand errors, and gained momentum from there, sweeping the final five games of the first set. The story was similar in the second set, and after falling behind, Williams resorted to her dominating power. She quickly won one game with two aces and two service winners during a period when she swept 11 consecutive points. Sharapova committed groundstroke errors on the final three points, and a victorious Williams trotted to the net, her left fist leading the way. She has more victories against Sharapova than against any other opponent. "Despite my results against her, I still look forward to playing against her because you learn so much from that type of level which she produces," Sharapova said. "You finish the match, and you know where you need to improve and the things that you need to work on."
