Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Denard Span broke a tie game in the 10th inning and led the Washington Nationals to a 5-2 win against the Miami Marlins to avoid a three-game sweep.

Span finished with three hits, including two doubles, and knocked in a pair of runs to snap a three-game losing streak.

Rookie Taylor Jordan received a no-decision despite giving up two runs with four strikeouts in six innings. Craig Stammen (5-4), who took lost Saturday's 10-inning thriller, picked up the win after tossing a scoreless ninth.

Steve Cishek (3-5) gave up a run for the first time in 18 appearances, a streak that spanned 16 1/3 innings, to take the loss. Cishek, who won Saturday's game, gave up three runs on three hits in 1 1/3 innings.

Derek Dietrich homered for Miami, which had three straight games coming into Sunday.
