Tommy Henry (4-1) went 6 2/3 innings for the Diamondbacks in a strong start. He allowed just one run on seven hits and struck out five while retiring seven of the final eight batters he faced
It was a 2-1 when the D-backs pulled away from the Nationals in the seventh inning on the home run by Marte to take a commanding four-run lead
Nationals manager Dave Martinez was ejected from the game in the top of the fifth after a lengthy screaming match with home plate umpire Doug Eddings
The Diamondbacks had won the series' first two games in early June. Thursday's tilt was the makeup of a June 8 postponement due to air quality issues from the wildfires in Canada
The rally in the seventh got going for the D-backs when Alex Thomas reached first on a throwing error by Luis Garcia. Reliever Jordan Weems got two straight outs before walking Geraldo Perdomo.
Weems then left a fastball up high to Marte, who drove it into right field for his 12th home run.
The Diamondbacks opened the scoring in the first with a Christian Walker single into center field that scored Corbin Carroll from first, thanks in part to a fielding error by Derek Hill
The Nationals answered back in the third with a Lane Thomas solo shot that just barely cleared the left-field wall to tie the game at one. Thomas extended his hitting streak to 10
The D-backs answered back in the top of the fourth. Carroll led off the inning with a single, stole second and then advanced to third on an infield popup that Luis Garcia allowed to drop for a single.
Emmanuel Rivera was able to drive Carroll home with a sacrifice fly to center to put the D-backs back up 2-1.
The Nationals pushed across consolation runs in the ninth with a two-run homer from Riley Adams to make it 5-3
Adams finished 3-for-4, adding two singles to go along with the home run.
Scott McGough closed out the hopes of a comeback by retiring the next two batters to earn his fifth save of the year.
