Nats come back vs. Braves
Davies chased in fifth
Kyle Davies was the victim of a miscue by second baseman Kelly Johnson in the fifth inning that led to four unearned runs and, ultimately, another loss for the righty. After scoring in two of the first four innings, Braves hitters were held scoreless by six Nats relievers.

Nats rally in finale
If good teams take advantage of mistakes, then the Nats were a very good team on Wednesday. Ryan Church drilled a bases-loaded double after Kelly Johnson booted a grounder in a four-run fifth as Washington came back to beat Atlanta. Ryan Zimmerman had a double and his fourth homer.
