Nats Beat Cards in 13 Despite Pujols' #400
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ian Desmond singled home Nyjer Morgan in the bottom of the 13th inning and the Washington Nationals overcame Albert Pujols' 400th home run Thursday night in an 11-10 roller-coaster win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Morgan was hit by a pitch from Blake Hawksworth (4-8) while squaring to bunt leading off the inning, then advanced to third on Alberto Gonzalez's one-out single. With the infield in, Desmond bounced a grounder up the middle.

Doug Slaten (4-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the Nationals, who broke out of their offensive doldrums with 16 hits. Washington had been shut out three times in the past week, and the victory ended a four-game losing streak.
