Washington, DC - Ian Desmond had three hits, including the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning, and the Washington Nationals kept pace on the fringes of the playoff race Wednesday night with a rain-delayed 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins.

Desmond also scored a run and stole a base, and Jayson Werth homered to straightaway center field for the Nationals, who have won seven of eight. They remain seven games behind Cincinnati, which beat St. Louis 10-0, for the NL's second wild-card berth.

Drew Storen (4-2) worked out of a seventh-inning jam and got the win on a night when starter Stephen Strasburg was done after two innings because of a 72-minute rain delay. Tyler Clippard worked the eighth, and Rafael Soriano the ninth for his 35th save.

The Nationals broke a 3-3 tie in the seventh off Mike Dunn (3-4).
