WASHINGTON (AP) -- Livan Hernandez pitched a three-hitter, Michael Morse homered twice and doubled, and the Washington Nationals routed the St. Louis Cardinals 10-0 Wednesday night for their fifth straight win.

Albert Pujols made two errors at third base, leading to a pair of unearned runs, as the Cardinals lost their season-worst fifth in a row.

Jayson Werth and Danny Espinosa also homered. Morse drove in three runs and now has 11 homers in his last 36 games.

Hernandez (4-8) struck out six and walked none in his ninth career shutout.
