Braves 2, Nationals 1

ATLANTA — Julio Teheran made it through six scoreless innings and a tired bullpen held on for the Braves, who won two of three in the series to stretch their NL East lead over the Nationals to 15½ games. Washington had two runners on with no outs in each of the first three innings, putting a strain on Teheran's pitch count. "He did a nice job getting us through the sixth," manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
