Four-run first sets Nats up for win

Clint Robinson capped a 4-run first with a 2-run homer to help the Nats take the opener vs. the Braves. Nats SP Jordan Zimmermann fanned six in 7 2/3 scoreless innings, while Braves SP Shelby Miller settled down to strike out 10 but allowed 4 ER on 8 hits in five innings. Box score

Nats not wasting time in Atlanta

Danny Espinosa smacked an RBI double, Wilson Ramos added an RBI single and Clint Robinson capped the Nationals' four-run first with a two-run shot to right field. Safe to say Braves SP Shelby Miller's second inning is going much better than his first. Follow live
