Tommy Hanson got down early by giving up two RBI doubles in the first four innings, but he was able to last the usual 5.1 innings, walking two and striking out four while throwing 92 pitches.
The bottom half of the Braves lineup was the victor this time as Andrelton Simmons had two hits, including the game-tying double in the fourth, and Dan Uggla added two hits and three RBIs. David Ross also had two singles in between.
Martin Prado added a double to make it 40 on the season.
The Braves are certainly doing everything they can to catch the Nationals, but Washington isn’t cooperating, and it appears they will win again tonight, barring something crazy.
Edit: The Nationals did indeed win, making it four games back with six to play.
