WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ryan Zimmerman homered twice and drove in
three runs, and Danny Espinosa and Roger Bernadina each had three
hits and two RBIs as the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta
Braves 9-2 to split a four-game series between the top two teams in
the NL East.
After Washington blew a 9-0 lead Friday night in an 11-10 loss,
the teams split a Saturday doubleheader. The Nationals lead the
division by 3 1/2 games -- as they did when the series began.
Zimmerman's two-run homer and Danny Espinosa's double keyed a
four-run first off Atlanta starter Jair Jurrjens (3-4).
Zimmerman's solo shot and Espinosa's RBI double finished
Jurrjens in the fourth. In his last two starts, Jurrjens has
allowed 14 runs and 17 hits in six innings.
Ross Detwiler (5-3) won his first game since May 3.
