Nationals Maintain Their Top Position After A Close Game

June 30, 2012 |

It was a pretty close game last night between the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves and the 5-4 final score means that the Nationals will continue to keep their first position in the National League East division. In just a few words, there were some nice plays and close calls during the game which turned out to be very entertaining as the Braves played a very aggressive style and did their best to beat the top team.

The star of the night for the Nationals, Michael Morse, certainly played a great game at the bat as he went four for four and also got a solo homer in the eighth inning. He has been playing very well in the last few games getting two home runs during these four last games as well as a double. He is surely one of the guys to look out for in future games and he is getting better and better with every game.

Ross Detwiler also had a flawless early game and didn’t allow the Braves to get any point for six innings which meant a pretty nice lead for the Nationals. Despite starting off well, Detwiler lost his edge in the seventh and there were some mistakes that got the Braves a fighting chance. It was all over soon for Detwiler as Andrelton Simmons got a two-run homer and made the score even.

It wasn’t over yet, and Morse was the last to put in his two cents and got a homer in the eighth which got Washington the win and made it 44-31 for the number one team while Atlanta got 40-36. All in all, it was a nice game to watch but what makes every game more interesting is a little bet on the action.
