Nationals 2, Braves 1

Ian Desmond led off the seventh inning with a home run — the only run of the game scored on a hit — and Washington avoided a sweep with a win over visiting Atlanta. Desmond ripped a down-the-middle fastball from Alex Wood well into the left field bleachers, the Nationals’ first hit since the first inning. But it was enough to win on a day when four Washington pitchers combined to allow eight hits.
