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.

INTERLEAGUE

Brewers 4, Red Sox 0

Lyle Overbay hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the ninth inning off Edward Mujica, and Milwaukee beat Boston 6-2 in the Red Sox’ first game at Fenway Park since winning the World Series last October. During a nearly hour-long pregame ceremony, Red Sox players received their rings for winning Boston’s third title in 10 years. But then the Brewers ended Boston’s streak of wins in nine straight home openers.
