The Atlanta Braves extended the win streak to thirteen on Tuesday night after a 10-4 defeat over the Washington Nationals. It was all Braves early, as Dansby Swanson continued his hot streak and homered in the first inning, accounting for his fifth straight at Nationals park.

The rest of the offense also came to life as the Braves lineup racked up thirteen hits. Between RBI from d’Arnaud, Ozuna, Arcia, Swanson, and Harris, the Braves were easily able to put away the Nats.

The Braves go for their fourteenth consecutive win tonight in DC as Spencer Strider gets the ball. First pitch is set for 7:05 ET.
