Nationals Vs. Braves: Washington Gets By Atlanta, 8-4

The Washington Nationals took game two of their weekend series with the Atlanta Braves by a final score of 8-4 on Saturday afternoon at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA.

Danny Espinosa led the way for the Nats with three RBI's in the ball game while Adam LaRoche contributed two more RBI's and Tyler Moore had one.

Pitcher Stephen Strasburg got the win on the mound for the Nats even though he had a rough outing as he pitched five innings and gave up six hits and all four of Atlanta's earned runs while walking four Braves batters and striking out six. Tyler Clippard gets credited with the save, his third of the season.

The finals game of the Nationals and Braves series will take place on Sunday.
