Baseball has an incredibly long season, and individual wins and losses rarely carry over the next day. But Atlanta's dramatic
over Washington last night is likely to be felt by both teams starting today and beyond. Down 9-0 after five innings, the Braves rallied back to win 11-10 in the 11th. The Braves now trail the Nationals by only 2.5 games. The two teams close out their series with a double-header today.
"I don't even know where to start," said Jones, who drove in two runs with a single in the Braves' four-run eighth inning. "I still can't believe it. I mean, 9-0. That's never happened to me since I've been here."
"A really crazy game, but it counts, right?" Janish said. "All that matters is that we end up with one more than them, so it worked out."
