WASHINGTON (AP) — Aubrey Huff drove in the tiebreaking run with a pinch-hit triple in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles made the most of three hits Saturday night in a 2-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.

Although the Orioles are in the AL East cellar and Washington owns the worst record in the majors, the Nationals drew their second-largest crowd of the season (31,833) for this interleague matchup of teams located 40 miles apart on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.

Making his second major league start, 23-year-old Ross Detwiler pitched six innings of one-hit ball for Washington before being lifted with the score 1-all. The lone hit against the left-hander was an infield single by Nick Markakis that drove in a run.
