(AP) - The Nationals scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth to come from behind and beat the Braves 6-5 in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. Washington took an early lead with three runs in the first but then sat back and watched their bats fall silent.


In the ninth the Braves brought in their usually reliable closer, Craig Kimbrell, but the right-hander had a hard time finding the plate. It was his fourth blown save of the season.


The final two runs scored on an error by Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons.

Evan Gattis notched his 20th homer of the year in the loss.


The game was a makeup for the contest postponed last night because of the Navy Yard shootings. Before the game the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff greeted players in the Washington clubhouse, handing out blue and gold Navy caps. Manager Davey Johnson and his players held those caps from Adm. James Winnefeld over their hearts during a pregame moment of silence, disturbed only by the sound of a helicopter hovering nearby.
