The Atlanta Braves played a wild one on Friday night, but ended it with a 10-6 loss to the Washington Nationals. There was a lot of scoring and a combined 27 hits, so here are the highlights:

  • Alan Winans got the start to give some of the starters extra rest ahead of the National League Division Series. He tossed 5.1 innings and allowed six runs.
  • The Braves offense struck first in the first, courtesy of Matt Olson’s RBI single.
  • The Nats put up a crooked number in the fourth inning to take the lead and again in the sixth to retake the lead.
  • Jesse Chavez was charged with three runs, one in which were earned.

The Braves continue play against the Nats tonight at 7:20 ET with Spencer Strider on the bump.
