ATLANTA (AP) - Rookie Tommy Hanson struck out nine in 6 2-3
innings and the surging Atlanta Braves won again, routing the
Nationals 8-1 to snap Washington's eight-game winning streak
The Braves have won four straight, six of seven and 16 of 25
since the All-Star break, a stretch that has made them a factor in
the NL playoff race. Atlanta started the night 4½ games behind NL
East-leading Philadelphia, which visits Turner Field this weekend.
Hanson (7-2) had his second-most strikeouts since being called
up from Triple-A in early June, surpassed only by an 11-strikeout
effort against San Francisco on July 20. He allowed seven hits and
didn't walk anyone.
Chipper Jones homered for the Braves.
John Lannan (8-9) took the loss.
