WASHINGTON (AP) - Wilson Ramos hit a grand slam and rookie right-hander Taylor Jordan had six strong innings for his first major league win to lead the Washington Nationals to a 14-1 rout of the New York Mets on Sunday.

The Nationals won their third game in a row and fourth in five to salvage a tumultuous 11-game homestand.

They lost the first six games after the All-Star break, fired hitting coach Rick Eckstein last Monday and demoted former closer Drew Storen to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

Mets right-hander Carlos Torres (1-2) could not build on his solid start last week against the Atlanta Braves.

He allowed eight runs and nine hits in just three innings. Ramos had his third-inning grand slam. He ripped a 2-1 pitch into the left-field stands to cap a five-run inning.

Jordan (1-3), making his sixth career start, earned his first victory. The 24-year-old held New York to five hits in six innings.

The Nats set season highs in runs and hits (18) and battered Torres. Ramos singled home Ian Desmond in the second inning to start the scoring. Bryce Harper followed two batters later with a two-out single on a 3-2 count that scored two more runs to make it 3-0.

Ryan Zimmerman led off the third inning with a single and scored on a Desmond base hit prior to Ramos' grand slam. Zimmerman finished 3-for-4 with a double.

Ramos tied a career high with five RBIs - the second time this month he's done so. Ramos also had five RBIs on July 4 against Milwaukee. The grand slam was the first of his career.

Jayson Werth and Denard Span both added RBI singles in the fourth inning to make it 10-1. Washington was 9-for-12 with runners in scoring position.

Things turned sloppy for the Mets in the sixth inning when reliever David Aardsma and catcher John Buck combined on a two-out wild pitch followed by a passed ball. That allowed Werth to advance to third base. Desmond singled him home.

Span, who entered the weekend without a home run since last Oct. 2, then hit his second in as many days. That line drive over the fence in right made it 13-1. Span finished with four hits, the first time he'd done so since July 31, 2012.

Desmond reached base five times, drove in three runs and posted his third four-hit game of the year.

The only Mets run came on a fourth-inning single to right by Marlon Byrd. That drove home Eric Young. Jordan struck out a career-best seven batters and walked just one.

Jordan, who began the season at Class A Potomac, has become a key part of a Nats rotation that is missing left-hander Ross Detwiler, on the 15-day disabled list with a herniated disc in his back, and has seen veteran Dan Haren (5-1, 5.49) struggle.

Jordan is on an innings limit in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery in 2011. Washington manager Davey Johnson said earlier in the week that Jordan has between 20 to 30 innings remaining before the organization ends his season. He is at 125 2-3 total innings with 35 1-3 of those in the majors.

NOTES: Mets third baseman David Wright was not in the starting lineup for just the third time this season It was a non-injury day off, ``which he certainly needs,' said New York manager Terry Collins. ... On Monday, the Mets continue an eight-game road trip with the start of a three-game series in Miami against the last-place Marlins. ... RHP Jeremy Hefner (4-8, 4.17) pitches for New York against RHP Jacob Turner (3-3, 2.49). ... The Mets are 3-8 against the Marlins this season. ... The Nationals are off on Monday. They begin a five-game road trip on Tuesday in Detroit. ... RHP Stephen Strasburg (5-8, 2.85) starts for Washington against RHP Anibal Sanchez (8-7, 2.68).
