WASHINGTON (AP) - Adam LaRoche homered, Ryan Zimmerman had three hits and Ian Desmond added two doubles and three RBIs as the Washington Nationals welcomed back Bryce Harper with a 7-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.
Harper, who missed 57 games because of a torn ligament in his left thumb, went 1 for 3 with an RBI single - on Bryce Harper bobblehead night.
Jordan Zimmermann (6-4) allowed two runs in six innings as Washington won its third straight.
Justin Morneau had three hits for the Rockies, who have lost 12 of 14.
Yohan Flande (0-1), making his second start, was charged with three runs on six hits.
The Nationals trailed 2-1 before a five-run sixth, highlighted by Desmond's three-run, bases-clearing double into the left-field corner.
