Guillen saves Nats
Question of the Day
The Nationals responded with one run of their own in the first inning.
With one out in the bottom of the first, Braves starter Horacio Ramirez walked Byrd. Byrd then took second when Ramirez threw a wild pitch in the dirt to Jose Guillen. Byrd really must have annoyed Ramirez because Ramirez tried to pickoff Byrd at second.
Trailing 2-1, the Nationals tied it in the fourth inning when light-hitting shortstop Cristian Guzman delivered a double to the alley in right that scored Deivi Cruz on a close play at the plate.
After Andruw Jones’ homer gave the Braves a four-run lead, the Nationals kept chipping away with Preston Wilson’s RBI single in the fifth and Vinny Castilla’s solo homer in the seventh.
