Hammel (7-2) improved to 4-0 at Nationals Park, striking out eight without a walk and allowing eight hits. He struck out Tyler Moore to end the sixth inning and strand the potential tying run.
Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez (3-3) kept Baltimore scoreless until the fourth when the Orioles scored three runs. Navarro's bloop RBI single tied the score at 1 and put runners on first and second with one out. After Hammel bunted, Markakis hit a two-out, two-run single.
The Nationals played without Bryce Harper, who has swelling in his left knee.
