MIAMI -

Ross Detwiler departed with a lead for the third start in a row Wednesday night, and this time the bullpen held on as Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals beat the Miami Marlins 6-1.

Harper, back in the Nationals' lineup after missing one game with the flu, hiked his average to .364 with four hits and improved to 8 for 12 against Ricky Nolasco. Harper hit two solo homers off Nolasco on opening day.

Detwiler (1-0) allowed one run in seven innings, which increased his ERA to 0.90. He left his first two starts with the Nationals ahead 5-1 and 4-1, but both times received no decision.

Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano pitched one perfect inning apiece to close out the seven-hitter.
