Uggla, Braves take down Nationals

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Dan Uggla drove in two runs during a decisive four-run fifth inning that boosted the Atlanta Braves to a 6-2 win over the Washington Nationals in the second test of a three-game set Saturday at Nationals Park.

Atlanta starter Julio Teheran (1-1) struck out six over seven strong innings and limited the Nationals to just two runs on three hits and four walks to pick up the win.

Ian Thomas spun a scoreless eighth and Jordan Walden stranded runners on first and second in the ninth to close out Atlanta's fourth straight victory.

Teheran also added two hits and an RBI at the plate, while Ryan Doumit and Andrelton Simmons supplied an RBI apiece in the win.

Stephen Strasburg (0-1) was knocked around for six runs -- three earned -- on eight hits and three walks over 4 1/3 frames to absorb the loss.

Adam LaRoche launched a two-run homer for the Nationals, who have lost two straight since opening the season with a three-game sweep of the Mets.
