WASHINGTON (AP) - Kelly Johnson drew a bases-loaded walk from
Mike Hinckley in the ninth inning, lifting the Atlanta Braves to a
1-0 victory over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night.

The Braves won for the second time in seven games. The
Nationals, who took the first two games of the three-game series,
dropped to 3-11 - the worst record in the majors.

The game was scoreless through eight, with Jair Jurrjens
pitching 7 2-3 innings for Atlanta and John Lannan seven for
Washington.

Matt Diaz singled with one out in the ninth against Garrett Mock
(0-1) and was forced at second on Casey Kotchman's grounder. Mock
walked Jordan Schafer before Hinckley issued free passes to
pinch-hitter Martin Prado and Johnson.
