Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - B.J. Upton drove in the winning run in the
last of the 10th inning to lead the Atlanta Braves in a 2-1 win over the
Washington Nationals in the second of a three-game series.
With Henry Rodriguez (0-1) on the mound, Evan Gattis worked a walk to start
the frame. After Ramiro Pena fouled out on a bunt attempt, Gattis moved into
scoring position thanks to a walk from Dan Uggla. Upton then stroked a single
to right for the win.
Andrelton Simmons drove in the other run while Jordan Walden (2-1) worked a
perfect top of the 10th to pick up the win for the Braves, who had lost four
of six coming in. Tim Hudson gave up an unearned run on three hits and a walk
with four strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings in the start.
Ian Desmond drove in the lone run of the game for the Nationals, who have lost
three of four. Gio Gonzalez went seven innings and gave up just one run on
three hits with a walk and seven strikeouts.
