Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves Series Recap

After losing the first game of the series, Atlanta came back and won the final two to clinch a series win over the Nationals. Some notes from the series:

Jason Heyward started two of the three games and went 3-5 with a triple, 2 RBI's, and a run scored. 

Craig Kimbrel pitched in all three games, recording two saves and striking out seven batters in three innings of work. With his save Wednesday, he set the record for saves in a season by a rookie, breaking Neftali Feliz's record.

Derek Lowe threw six great innings on Wednesday and also hit his first career home run. 

Chipper Jones had only two hits in the series, but made both count as both were home runs. His home run Wednesday gave him 450 for his career. 

Alex Gonzalez actually got a hit with runners on base and hit a sacrifice fly in the same series. I'm as shocked as y'all are. 

Michael Morse racked up four hits and four RBI's along with three runs scored during the series for the Nats.

Tim Hudson was very good on Thursday, allowing only one run and five hits in six innings of work while also striking out five.

Up next: 

The Dodgers head to Turner Field for a three-game series starting Friday night.
