WASHINGTON (AP) - Mark Reynolds had three hits, Craig Tatum drove in two runs and the Baltimore Orioles ended the Washington Nationals' eight-game winning streak with a 7-4 victory Sunday.

Chris Jakubauskas (2-0) pitched five innings for the win and had his first two major league hits. He allowed three runs and six hits, striking out six and walking one.

Jim Johnson worked two scoreless innings. Koji Uehara pitched two innings and allowed a run.

Baltimore's Derrek Lee had two more hits to finish 9 for 13 in the three-games series. He went 5 for 5 on Friday and had hits in his first two at-bats Saturday.

The Orioles, who had lost six of seven, scored their most runs since putting up nine on May 25.

Washington's eight-game winning streak was its longest since June 2005.
