Braves Win 10,000th Game In Rout Of Nationals

It feels good to have Prado in the lineup again.

It took the Braves franchise 135 years to reach 10,000 wins, and they did it in a dominating fashion.

Martin Prado homered and drove in two in his return from the DL in an 11-1 drubbing of the Nationals. Tim Hudson was equally impressive, throwing seven innings and striking out seven while also contributing a pair of hits offensively.

Once the Nationals scored in the first inning, it went downhill from there for them. Michael Morse booted Jordan Schafer's ground ball in the bottom of the first and then threw the ball away trying to recover. His two errors on one play led to a four-run inning for the Braves. Freddie Freeman, Dan Uggla and Nate McLouth all recorded RBI hits in the inning against starter Livan Hernandez; another run scored when Ian Desmond misplayed a David Ross grounder.

The Braves added another run in the third on Hudson's RBI single to score David Ross, who had doubled with one out. In the fourth, Martin Prado connected for his ninth home run of the season leading off the inning. Hernandez was chased after only four innings and allowing eight hits. Reliever Ross Detwiler didn't fare much better: he allowed three runs in the sixth inning on three hits, a walk and the fifth Nationals error of the game. Freddie Freeman tacked on two more runs with a double in the seventh off Todd Coffey.

Every starter had at least one hit and all of them but two (Schafer and Gonzalez) had at least one RBI; of Washington's eight hits, only one was for extra bases. Michael Morse committed three of Washington's five errors in the game.
