Upton lifts Braves past Nats 7-6 in 10 innings
Question of the Day
The decision to utilize Schafer’s speed made the difference.
“They put him in the game to steal second base right there,” Nationals manager Matt Williams said. “Otherwise they wouldn’t want to lose Johnson. We just want to try to prevent that as much as possible.”
Luis Avilan (2-1) pitched around two walks, one intentional, in the 10th.
Upton hit a solo home run in the eighth off Tyler Clippard that tied the score 6-all, his third homer in two games. Gonzalez said Upton had “about as pretty a swing as you’re going to see” on the homer to center.
Atlanta’s Ramiro Pena and Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman hit three-run drives - Zimmerman following a throwing error by Dan Uggla on a routine grounder to second.
Upton, who had three hits, is hitting .324. He has 10 hits in his last 21 at-bats.
Denard Span’s single off David Carpenter drove in Harper in the eighth to put the Nationals ahead 6-5.
Atlanta burst ahead with a four-run second against Tanner Roark, who allowed five runs and five hits in 4 2-3 innings. He hadn’t pitched since a win over the Mets on April 4.
