What a relief: Nats 'pen sharp
Nats bother Braves
Starter John Patterson allowed two runs on three hits and three walks over 2 2/3 innings before leaving the game with stomach cramps. Jose Guillen's 24th homer, a solo shot in the fourth, and a two-run fifth inning were all the offense Washington would need. Nationals relievers pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings to beat the Braves.

Series at a glance:
Not-so-fighting Braves
After allowing one run or less in three of his last four starts, Jorge Sosa allowed three runs on nine hits in five innings for his third loss of the season as the Braves were unable to manage much offensive production. In the third, Marcus Giles' RBI single and Andruw Jones' RBI base-on-balls accounted for Atlanta's only runs.
