Nationals blow 5-1 lead, fall to Milwaukee Brewers 7-5 despite two homers by Michael Morse

The Nationals blew a 5-1 lead and wasted two home runs by Michael Morse as Washington fell to the Brewers, 7-5 at Miller Park in Milwaukee Friday.

The Nats gave starter Craig Stammen a 3-1 lead in the second inning when Michael Morse hit a three-run home run off Chris Narveson off the top of the left field wall. Earlier in the inning, Adam Dunn was hit by a pitch and Josh Willingham singled.

Morse hit a solo shot to left center field in the fourth inning, giving the Nats a 5-1 lead, five more runs than they gave Stammen in a loss last Sunday to Florida.
