Wind made the rain delay in the 5th inning more problematic for the grounds crew in Atlanta, but NATS reliever Oliver Perez was at the ready trying to help get the tarp in place.

Nonetheless, the NATS weren’t able to get things turned around after the almost 2 hour rain delay, with the Braves bullpen keeping the NATS hitless in the final 4 and two-thirds innings.

Max Scherzer (3.02) pitched 5 innings giving up 3 earned runs off of 4 hits, 3 walks and 2 HRs (106 pitches, 62 strikes).  Scherzer struck out 6 of 21 batters.  Blake Treinen (7.78) gave up a run (2 hits), Oliver Perez (5.79) put up a zero in the runs column, and Matt Albers (1.62) gave up a solo HR making it 2-5.

Trea Turner (.243) went 2-for-4 with 1 RBI (scoring Matt Wieters), and Jayson Werth (.296) drove in Max Scherzer (both runs scored in the 5th inning).

Next game Sunday 1:35 PM in Atlanta:  Stephen Strasburg (4-1, 3.42 ERA, 48 K) vs. Jaime Garcia (1-2, 4.65 ERA, 25 K).
