ATLANTA (AP) - Craig Stammen, called up from the minors earlier
in the day, pitched 7 1-3 strong innings to lead the Washington
Nationals past the Atlanta Braves 7-2 on Tuesday night.
Josh Willingham hit a two-run homer, Ryan Zimmerman had a
two-run double and Alberto Gonzalez had four hits as the Nationals
snapped a five-game losing streak.
Stammen was sent to the minors with a 5.43 ERA on June 6 to
clear room for rookie Stephen Strasburg, who lost to the Braves 5-0
on Monday night.
Stammen (2-2) ended streaks of nine straight starts without a
win this year and 10 straight road starts without a win. The
right-hander's last road win came on July 11, 2009, at Houston.
Derek Lowe (9-6) gave up eight hits and four runs in 5 2-3
