WASHINGTON (AP) - Tanner Roark and the Washington bullpen outdueled Madison Bumgarner, and Wilson Ramos homered to lift the Nationals over the San Francisco Giants 1-0 Sunday in a matchup of NL division leaders.
Washington won twice in the three-game series. Last weekend, the Giants took two of three at home from the Nationals.
Bumgarner (10-7) lost despite allowing just hits, including Ramos' 18th homer in the seventh inning.
Roark (12-6) gave up five hits in seven innings. His last pitch came with runners on second and third, and center fielder Ben Revere made a spectacular, over-the-shoulder catch to rob Brandon Belt of extra bases. The crowd of 32,790 at Nationals Park saluted Revere with a standing ovation as he ran off the field.
Shawn Kelly retired the Giants in order in the eighth and Mark Melancon pitched the ninth for his 31st save. Melancon converted his first save opportunity since he was acquired in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 30.
