WASHINGTON (AP) Standing at the plate with a chance to make baseball history, Bryce Harper insisted his focus was on driving in the runner from third base.

He did, however, acknowledge the thought of hitting a fourth home run wasn't entirely banished to the back of his mind.

Harper homered three times in a game for the first time and had five RBIs in his finest day with the Nationals, leading Washington over the Miami Marlins 7-5 Wednesday for its third straight series win.
