WASHINGTON — Trea Turner hit two homers, including his first career grand slam, and drove in eight runs to help the Washington Nationals rally from a nine-run deficit and defeat the Miami Marlins 14-12 in a wild slugfest Thursday night to end a five-game losing streak.

Then Turner and Juan Soto drove a four- run rally in the fifth to make it 9 -5. Daniel Murphy’s sacrifice fly added another run in the sixth, then the team continued its rally until Turner (again) came up with the bases loaded.

The victory came a day after the Nationals called a players-only meeting Wednesday after Washington was swept by Boston and slipped under .500 for the first time since May 2.

But things didn't start smoothly.

Miami scored an unearned run in the first, and capped a six-run second on Martin Prado's three-run homer off the left-field foul pole. The Marlins made it 9-0 on Justin Bour's two-run homer in the fourth off Jeremy Hellickson.

BOX SCORE: NATIONALS 14, MARLINS 12

Despite the huge deficit, Washington was far from out of it.

Turner led off the fourth with a solo shot off Marlins starter Pablo Lopez, who surrendered four more runs in the fifth — including two on Juan Soto's double. Adam Conley (2-1) then allowed four of the first five hitters he faced to reach in the sixth before Turner smacked a two-out fastball with the bases loaded into Miami's bullpen to give the Nationals a stunning 10-9 lead. It was Turner's third career multi-homer game.
