ATLANTA (AP) -- Bryce Harper hit his second homer in two days,
Gio Gonzalez gave up only one hit in seven innings and the
Nationals beat the struggling Atlanta Braves 7-2 on Sunday night to
complete a three-game sweep.
Washington's first sweep at Turner Field in three years left the
Braves with a seven-game losing streak, their worst skid since
dropping nine straight in 2010.
The Nationals took the lead with four runs in the sixth. They
scored at least seven runs in each game of the series.
At 29-18, the Nationals moved 11 games over .500 for the first
time since their 2005 inaugural season in Washington.
Gonzalez (7-1) outlasted Atlanta's Brandon Beachy (5-3) in the
matchup of ERA leaders.
