We have some NL East division action on tap Tuesday, as the Washington Nationals take on the Atlanta Braves in game 1 of a 3-game set. Leake (2-1) allowed seven hits and only struck out one, but he held the Pirates to a run over 6 1/3 innings. "It's a tough matchup, but we hung in there and gave ourselves a chance at the end".
With the Braves trailing by two with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, infielder Travis d'Arnaud swung and missed on a 1-2 slider from Washington close Shawn Kelley.
Third base umpire C.B. Bucknor signaled an out on a fly ball that bounced in front of left fielder Emilio Bonifacio's glove in the sixth.

His counterpart Teheran exited after surrendering seven runs in four innings, but Harper didn't limit his demolition to the starter.

Nationals: RHP Stephen Strasburg (1-0) will try to give Washington a sweep of the three-game series on Thursday night. The 23-year-old made 19 starts for Washington a year ago, going 7-5 with a 3.43 ERA. Freeman had a run-scoring single in the eighth.
Scherzer (2-1) got an inning-ending double play to work around his only serious trouble in the fourth.
If there was one inning the Braves had a chance against Scherzer, it was the fourth. Yelich, who has been on fire this week, went three for five with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored. "When he's out there throwing 114, 115 pitches and still throwing 95, 96 (mph), it's going to be a tough game".
The Nationals broke a scoreless tie in the fifth.
Joe Ross bounced back from a shaky first inning in his first major league start of the season to pitch seven strong innings and earn the win.
Harper - the MLB MVP in 2015 - posted a four-hit effort to lead the Nationals to a 14-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday. He came around to score on Ryan Zimmerman's two-out double to right. But Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki alertly threw to third base when Harper tried to sneak a stolen base, and Harper was thrown out trying to retreat to second. Jayson Werth was called out on strikes to end the threat. Matt Wieters got it started with a double, went to third on a wild pitch and trotted home when Difo slapped a single to right. Jaime Garcia pitched 6.1 innings, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits with 4 strikeouts, ultimately not being a factor in the decision. Stanton went three for three with a solo home run and two walks. "And he said, 'Man, I've got 110 pitches or more in me, ' and I said, 'Well, you're at 103 right now, ' so he said, 'I promise you that I've got some more'". "My fastball was great early and great at the end".
