Big eighth inning helps Nationals beat Braves

(TSX / STATS) -- ATLANTA -- Thanks to a meltdown by the Atlanta bullpen, Washington Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez got a rare victory over the Braves Wednesday night.

The Nationals took advantage of four straight walks to score six runs in the eighth inning to get Gonzalez off the hook for a potential hard-luck loss, and Washington defeated the Braves 7-3.

"The key is those pitches weren't close enough to get tempted to swing," Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. "They lost command of the strike zone and helped us out there."
