Washington Nationals beat Baltimore Orioles 17-5 in biggest outburst in Nats history

      The Nats' Jayson Werth, seen here in a file photo, drove in four runs and hit a pair of home runs Friday.

      BALTIMORE (AP) Danny Espinosa homered and drove in five runs, Jayson Werth hit two homers and had four RBIs, and the Nationals had their biggest offensive outing since moving to Washington in a 17-5 rout of the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night.

      Roger Bernadina, Wilson Ramos and Laynce Nix also homered for the Nationals, who recorded a season-high 19 hits after being shut out in consecutive games. The six homers also set a Nationals record.

      Espinosa hit a three-run shot in the second, an RBI triple in the fourth and singled in a run in the fifth, falling a double shy of becoming the third Nationals player to hit for the cycle.
