Anthony Rendon broke a tie in spectacular fashion as the Washington Nationals topped the Atlanta Braves 6-3 in MLB.
Nationals third baseman Rendon hit a grand slam in the sixth inning to put his team ahead of the Braves for good on Monday.
Juan Soto and Trea Turner also brought in runs as the Nationals moved to 57-49 and four-and-a-half games behind the National League East-leading Braves.
Atlanta tried to chip away at their deficit with a run in the ninth, but it was not enough to catch Washington.
Dallas Keuchel was tagged with the loss after pitching 5.3 innings, allowing four runs and six hits.
Patrick Corbin got the win after he gave up just two runs and five hits in six innings of work.
