Braves' Win Streak at 12 After 2-1 Win Over Nats

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Hit by a pitch two innings after homering, Bryce Harper jawed and pointed at Atlanta's Julio Teheran, and the dugouts and bullpens emptied, but the only haymakers thrown during the NL East-leading Braves' 2-1 victory over the Nationals on Tuesday night came from the teams' Twitter feeds.

All in all, it was the sort of stuff rivalries and high-drama playoff chases are made of.

Except, in this particular case, Evan Gattis' two-run single in the fifth inning and the six innings thrown by Teheran (9-5) while allowing one run combined to produce Atlanta's season-high 12th consecutive win, padding their NL East lead to 14½ games over Washington.

Gattis' big hit came off Gio Gonzalez (7-5), who pitched one night after Major League Baseball announced its Biogenesis investigation cleared the left-hander.
