NEW YORK (AP) — Jacob deGrom had a tiebreaking single and again shut down the Marlins with seven impressive innings, David Wright doubled twice and drove in two runs, and the New York Mets completed a three-game sweep of Miami with a 9-1 victory on Sunday.

Wright, Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares each had RBI doubles, and Chris Young added a sacrifice fly for New York in its eighth win on a 10-game homestand heading into the All-Star break.

New York jumped over the Marlins, losers of four straight, and into third place in the NL East at 45-50.

DeGrom (3-5), who pitched seven innings in Miami for his first big league victory on June 21, struck out eight and allowing five hits and a run.

DeGrom got his first big league RBI after Brad Hand (0-2) intentionally walked Ruben Tejada to face the lanky former college shortstop. DeGrom lined a single to center for a 2-1 lead.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jayson Werth homered and drove in four runs, and Tanner Roark pitched seven strong innings to lead Washington over Philadelphia.

Ryan Zimmerman also went deep and had two RBIs, Ian Desmond knocked in two runs, and Anthony Rendon had three hits and an RBI for Washington, which won the last two games of the series and stayed tied with Atlanta atop the NL East entering the All-Star break.

Philadelphia scored two unearned runs off Aaron Barrett in the ninth to end with three runs or fewer for the 49th time this season.

Roark (8-6) allowed a run and four hits. He struck out six and walked none.

The Phillies dropped to 8-41 overall and 2-29 in their last 31 games when failing to score four runs. Cody Asche had two doubles and an RBI for Philadelphia, which fell 10 games behind Washington.

It was the second straight defeat for Philadelphia after a five-game winning streak.
