PITTSBURGH -- Ian Desmond hit a pair of run-scoring singles to lead Washington to a 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday, snapping the Nationals' four-game losing streak.

Desmond singled in the first inning to put the Nationals ahead 2-0 then made it 5-1 with his single in the seventh, helping end the Pirates' four-game winning streak.

Denard Span and Jayson Werth also had two hits for the Nationals, who scored just seven runs during their skid.

Doug Fister (2-1) allowed one run and six hits in 5 1-3 innings with four strikeouts and no walks. He has given up two runs in 17 1-3 innings in his past three starts. Rafael Soriano pitched a perfect ninth for his 11th save.

Francisco Liriano (0-5) is winless in 14 consecutive regular-season starts, dating to last Sept. 10 when he won at Texas. He gave up four runs, six hits and four walks in five innings while striking out five.

Neil Walker had three hits for the Pirates.

Josh Harrison hit his third home run and Ike Davis also had two hits.
