Nationals have a 'fun day' in DH sweep of Twins

WASHINGTON (AP) - Ian Desmond doubled home the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and the Washington Nationals made manager Davey Johnson's "fun day" even better Sunday with a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins to complete a sweep of a day-night doubleheader.
    
Desmond's drive to left-center completed a comeback from a three-run deficit - making it the Nationals' biggest come-from-behind victory of the season - and pulled Washington back to .500 after a 3-2 homestand.
    
Jordan Zimmermann dominated the first game, allowing two hits over seven innings in a 7-0 win that followed a Nationals team meeting and prompted Johnson to proclaim: "This is kind of a fun day."
