Ian Desmond and Bryce Harper each homered and drove in two runs as the streaking Washington Nationals rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the San Francisco Giants 14-6 Sunday. Jose Lobaton doubled among his three hits, drove in a run and scored twice for the Nationals, who took the rubber game against the Giants despite a laboured four-inning outing from starter Stephen Strasburg. Craig Stammen (4-4) allowed a run in two innings of relief for NL-East leading Washington, which has won 12 of 13. Danny Espinosa also homered for the Nationals. Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt (3-2) allowed five hits and five runs in the sixth without retiring a batter after the departure of starter Ryan Vogelsong. The Nationals scored six runs in the sixth on eight hits, tying for their most hits in an inning since they began playing in D.C. in 2005. Gregor Blanco and Travis Ishikawa homered for the Giants, who ended their road trip 3-3. Brandon Crawford had three singles for San Francisco, which used its bullpen for 11 2-3 innings across the three-game series. Strasburg allowed five earned runs -- his most at home since the final game of his innings-limit-shortened 2012 season -- on eight hits and two walks. His day ended by getting pinch-hitter Nate Schierholtz to pop out to short to end the fourth. Vogelsong allowed three runs and three hits and allowed a season high-tying four walks in 5 1-3 innings. He departed with a 6-3 lead after yielding Desmonds homer. Harper doubled and scored on Affeldts wild pitch. Lobaton singled in Asdrubal Cabrera and Scott Hairstons pinch-hit, RBI double tied it. Jean Machi picked Denard Span off first after entering with the game tied and runners on the corners. But Jayson Werth and LaRoche each had RBI singles to finish the scoring in the sixth. The Nationals added a run in the seventh and five more in the eighth. TRAINERS ROOM Giants: CF Angel Pagan (left calf tightness), was left out of the starting lineup for the second straight day. Pagan spent almost two months on the disabled list with a strained back before returning to the club on Aug. 7. Nationals: OF Steve Souza Jr. (right shoulder strain) entered Sunday with two hits and an RBI in five at-bats during two rehab games at Class-A affiliates, one each with Hagerstown and Potomac. UP NEXT Giants: RHP Jake Peavy (2-3, 3.5 looks for his third straight victory Monday night as San Francisco begins a seven-game homestand with the first of four against the Colorado Rockies. Nationals: RHP Tanner Roark (12-7, 2.80) will start the first of three games at Philadelphia against A.J. Burnett (6-14, 4.42), who is 10-5 with a 3.39 ERA against Washington over his career.

Lions training camp on Monday morning and launched a tight spiral down the sideline reminiscent of his time as a CFL quarterback. In some ways, it represented what the clubs new offensive co-ordinator hopes to accomplish in 2014. Jones was hired this off-season to kickstart a Lions attack that had been criticized in recent years for being both predictable and conservative under Jacques Chapdelaine. The team parted ways with its former offensive co-ordinator in November and handed the keys to Jones, whose aggressive philosophy as a player seems to have followed him into coaching. It was one of two big off-season hires -- Mark Washington was promoted from defensive backs coach to defensive co-ordinator -- and a move the Lions hope will help get them back to the Grey Cup. "I hope its a high-powered offence," said Jones. "I hope its an offence where we can put points up on the board, because thats what wins you football games, but a balanced offence as well. An offence that uses its weapons, and we have a lot of weapons on this team. Lions head coach Mike Benevides said he expects Jones personality to be reflected in his play calling for a team that has not won a playoff game since its victory in the 2011 Grey Cup and will be feeling the pressure to perform with the big game set for Vancouver again this November. "Hes going to find a lot of ways to get matchups and tempo and things like that -- things he believes from the quarterback position," said Benevides. "Hes had enough experience as a player and as a coach to understand how you have to make sure you stay balanced, you attack and find ways to expose your athletes." Lions starting quarterback Travis Lulay said Jones wants his offence to be on the front foot in all aspects of the game, something the team didnt always do last season. "One of the big things and one of the first points of emphasis he says is we want to be aggressive," said Lulay. "We want to be aggressive when were running the football, we want to be aggressive when were throwing the football. "We want to have a confident, fast-playing, high-tempo attitude and approach to the game. We dont want to be passive, we dont want to be back on our heels." Jones started his playing career with the Lions in 1997 before moving on and having his best years with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He spent the last two seasons coaching quarterbacks with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and before that he held the same position with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for three years, including one as offensive co-ordinator. Lions No. 2 quarterback Kevin Glenn -- whoo could start the season in the top job if Lulay isnt fully recovered from shoulder surgery -- played for Jones with Hamilton for three seasons and said one of his best attributes is his ability to put players in a position to succeed.dddddddddddd "I think he does a very good job of learning a guys skillset and being able to exploit the defence," said Glenn. "Hes just one of those guys who believes in his players. Its not going to be a situation where he thinks he has to trick the defence into doing something. Hes going to say Hey, were going to line up and were going to beat you. "Hes an aggressive offensive co-ordinator and I think thats because he was an aggressive quarterback." Aggression is a common theme at Lions camp and is also something players use to characterize Washington, B.C.s new defensive co-ordinator after six seasons coaching the secondary. "Mark doesnt even like the word defence. He thinks its kind of passive," said Lions defensive back Ryan Phillips. "He wants to be aggressive and smart." Washington, who replaced Rich Stubler in the off-season, said he wants his defence to force the issue at all times, but not necessarily in the classic sense of the word. "When we say we want to attack, attack, attack, people automatically believe that thats going to be blitz, blitz, blitz, pressure, pressure, pressure, but thats not always the case," said Washington, himself a former defensive back with the Lions. "Attacking is a mentality. Attacking is were not going to sit back and let you dictate to us. Were going to dictate terms to you." Benevides was the Lions defensive co-ordinator when Washington first got the job to coach the secondary and is confident his former pupil is ready for the challenge. "What I know about Mark is hes an outstanding teacher," said Benevides. "Hes a guy that understands what it takes to win, a tremendous competitor. Even when he was a player, he made sure he had some answers to attack the opponent." Phillips said even though be has a new job, Washington hasnt altered his approach to the game or his players. "Just because they changed his title, it didnt mean he changed himself. Hes been the same since he started coaching. Hes going to be a guy who wants to work," said Phillips. "He was the same way as a player -- a guy that went out and worked hard, did the things he had to do and took it to the next level." After two straight disappointing seasons and a year ahead filled with the added pressure of being Grey Cup hosts, the Lions are banking that both Jones and Washington can help them climb even further.
