Video: Charlie Culberson, Braves score walk-off win over Nationals

Culberson comes through again!

MLB: Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Charlie Culberson delivered another walk-off home run for the Atlanta Braves as they defeat the Washington Nationals 4-2. Atlanta takes three of four from the Nationals and will head out on a west coast trip with a 1.5 game lead in the NL East.

Freddie Freeman finished 1-for-3 on the afternoon extending his hitting streak to 16-straight games.

Dansby Swanson went 2-for-3 at the plate including his fifth home run of the season which tied the game up in the seventh.

Atlanta also came out on the right side of a replay challenge as Swanson stretched a single into a double in the ninth. Swanson was initially called out but replay showed that he beat the tag at second.

That set the stage for Culberson who apparently has a flare for the dramatic with four of his eight career home runs being walk-offs.
