Nationals 8, Braves 1

on .

Adam LaRoche cost the Braves the game in the 5th inning. With 2 outs, a runner on base with the score 1-0 in favor of Washington, Nick Johnson hit a slow roller which should have been an easy out. LaRoche fielded it and casually half-walked half-jogged to the bag while ignoring Johnson, who was sprinting down the line. Johnson made it to the bag at the same time as LaRoche and was ruled safe. It was ruled as an error and Bobby was ejected after arguing the safe call. The Nationals then scored 4 runs with 2 outs to take control of the game. Thomson (1-3) went 5 innings, allowing 5 runs (1 earned) on 8 hits, a walk, and struck out 2. Moylan came on to give up 2 runs in the 6th while getting 1 out, McBride allowed another run before getting out of the 6th. McBride then pitched a scoreless 7th, Remlinger a scoreless 8th, and Paronto a scoreless 9th. The Braves could do nothing against Tony Armas. Their only run was a Betemit pinch-hit homer in the 9th. Chipper's 12 game hitting streak was snapped. So was the Braves 3 game winning streak, although they have still won 5 of the last 7. Offensive contributors: Wilson Betemit hit a pinch-hit homer in the 9th. Jeff Francoeur extended his hitting streak to 12, going 1-4. The Mets are trailing late and the Phillies are tied in extra innings. The Braves now host Florida, and Davies has a rematch against Josh Johnson tomorrow.
