MILWAUKEE - Jeff Bianchi lofted a single that dropped just behind Washington's drawn-in infield, breaking a tie and capping a five-run sixth inning in the Milwaukee Brewers' 8-5 win over the Nationals on Sunday.

With the score tied 4-4 and runners at second and third, Bianchi's soft bloop off Fernando Abad (0-3) dropped in back of second base as Anthony Rendon raced back to make a play. Khris Davis scored easily from third and Juan Francisco to just beat the throw home with a perfect slide, giving the Brewers the lead for good.

John Axford (5-4) allowed a home run to Adam LaRoche in the top of the sixth, but nothing else and earned the win. Jim Henderson pitched the ninth for his 15th save in 18 chances.

Milwaukee snapped a three-game losing streak.
