    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Apr 14, 2014
    Freddie Freeman had three hits, including a homer, and the Atlanta Braves beat Washington 6-3 on Saturday night to continue their early success against the Nationals. B.J. The Braves have won five of six against the Nationals this year. But he was far from the only Braves player who backed Alex Wood's determined effort in Saturday night's 6-3 win over the Nationals at Turner Field. Freeman, Evan Gattis and Upton all recorded three-hit nights as the Braves matched the season-high hit total they had produced against the Nationals exactly one week earlier. Justin Upton and Freddie Freeman each hit a two-run homer off Gio Gonzalez and the Atlanta Braves completed a three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals with a 10-2 victory on Sunday. Between the seven errors, injuries to Denard Span and Ryan Zimmerman and a three-game sweep that left them 7-18 against the Braves since the start of last season, the Nationals’ trip to Atlanta couldn’t have gone much worse. The good news is that Washington doesn’t play the Braves again until June 19, by which point the Nats, assuming they continue beating everyone not named Atlanta, should be 66-5.
