Strasburg wins fifth straight, Nats beat Blue Jays

Wednesday - 6/13/2012, 5:00pm  ET

TORONTO - Stephen Strasburg won his fifth straight start, Tyler Moore hit the first two home runs of his career and the Washington Nationals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-2 Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep.

Ian Desmond also connected as Washington completed the first undefeated six-game road trip since the franchise relocated from Montreal. The NL East-leading Nationals, who swept Boston at Fenway Park last weekend, outscored the Red Sox and Blue Jays 31-16.

Recalled from Triple-A Syracuse last week, Moore started in place of Adam LaRoche, who was out after fouling a ball off his right foot in Tuesday's victory.

Moore went 3 for 4 with five RBIs.

Jose Bautista hit his 19th home run for Toronto against Strasburg (8-1).
