Livan Hernandez was solid for seven of the eight innings he pitched, but mistakes in the fourth frame proved costly. In that inning, he gave up a solo home run to Andruw Jones, then a three-run shot to Brian McCann. The Nationals couldn't make up the four-run deficit, their bats held in check by Atlanta starter Jorge Sosa.
