WASHINGTON (AP) - Jayson Werth launched a two-run homer in the seventh inning for his 1,000th career hit, highlighting a five-run rally that sent the Washington Nationals over the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5 Saturday night.

Werth got three hits, including an RBI single in the fourth and his two-out, tiebreaking shot off reliever Zach Miner.

In his second major league game, Tanner Roark (1-0) pitched two spotless innings. Tyler Clippard surrendered Domonic Brown's 26th home run in the eighth and Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his 29th save.

Jake Diekman (0-3) took the loss.

Darin Ruf also homered for the Phillies, who wasted an early 4-0 lead and have dropped 10 straight road games.

Phillies starter Cliff Lee left after six innings with a 4-3 edge.

Pinch-hitter Steve Lombardozzi drew a leadoff walk from Diekman in the seventh. With one out and runners at the corners, Diekman faced Bryce Harper in a lefty vs. lefty matchup.

Harper bunted, and the ball popped in the air and landed in front of second baseman Chase Utley, who recorded a forceout at second as the tying run scored. Werth, a former Phillies star, then greeted Miner with his homer, and Anthony Rendon tacked on a two-run single later in the inning.

The Nationals' rally denied Phillies manager Charlie Manuel the 1,000th win of his career.

Lee had lost his previous three starts. The veteran left-hander has not won since defeating Atlanta on July 5.

Lee picked up an RBI with a safety-squeeze bunt during Philadelphia's four-run second inning. Ruf hit a two-run homer off Taylor Jordan and later Jimmy Rollins singled home a run.

On his 26th birthday, Wilson Ramos' two-out single in the sixth scored Werth, trimming Philadelphia's lead to 4-3. Werth scored three times.

NOTES: Making his eighth career start, Jordan allowed four runs and seven hits over five innings. ... Facing minor league batters, Phillies RHP Roy Halladay threw five 15-pitch innings during a simulated game in Clearwater, Fla. ``He came out of it great,' Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said. Halladay has been on the disabled list since May 6 and eventually had right shoulder surgery. ... Sunday's series finale matches RHP Kyle Kendrick (10-8, 4.36 ERA) against Nationals RHP Stephen Strasburg (5-9, 3.01 ERA).
