The Atlanta Braves saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end Sunday with a 6-2 loss to the Washington Nationals. Lack of consistent offensive production and a big five-run inning from Washington would be the main downfalls from the Sunday showdown.
The Braves did get off to a solid start in this one offensively as the bats got rolling in the first. Ronald Acuña Jr. got things going by reaching on an infield single. Matt Olson then stepped to the plate and launch his 18th homer of the year over the Chop House to give Atlanta a 2-0 lead.
Bryce Elder held the Nationals scoreless before they finally scratched a run across in the fourth. Jeimer Candelario worked a two-out walk and then moved up to second on a Corey Dickerson single. Keibert Ruiz then delivered a single that scored Candelario to make it 2-1.
