Freddie Freeman continued to wield a hot bat on Wednesday versus the Nationals, going 2-for-3 with two RBI and swatting a solo home run.

CARDINALS 2, PIRATES 1: Dexter Fowler tripled and scored, Mike Leake pitched into the seventh inning and the St. Louis Cardinals beat Pittsburgh.

ATLANTA - Bryce Harper had two homers, including a grand slam, among four hits and Washington overwhelmed Julio Teheran and Atlanta. Everyone knew it. The Nats celebrated, and the Braves walked off the field, and the MASN broadcast went to commercial before the postgame show. Zimmerman was 2-for-3 with a walk, and he is batting.356. They're also 4-0 in their last four games versus a team with a winning record and have won eight consecutive games versus a right-handed starter.

Even on a balmy night for the opener of a three-game series against the defending NL East champions, the crowd of 21,834 was the smallest in five games at SunTrust Park.

The Nationals had a scoring opportunity in the fourth inning but failed to execute. However, Harper got caught wandering too far off the bag and was thrown out at second base.

"We had one opportunity one inning where we could have gotten something and (Scherzer) shut it down", Freeman said. Adonis Garcia grounded into a double play, the first turned in support of Scherzer this season, to put out the fire. Jayson Werth was called out on strikes to end the threat.

The Nationals broke a scoreless tie in the fifth.

The amendment allows felons to get their voting rights restored once they finish their sentences, including probation or parole. Rick Scott took office in 2011, he largely reversed the policy to restore felon voting rights instituted under former Gov.


You can understand Werth's frustration - Bucknor has a hard job, yet this mistake was inexplicable, in part because d'Arnaud himself didn't even sell that he had made contact - but you do wonder if some of it stems from balls and strikes.

But Washington has dominated its division rival the last two-plus season, improving to 37-13 in their last 50 meetings.

Nationals: RHP Joe Ross will be called up from Triple-A Syracuse for his first big league start of the season.

"I think everybody knows how good we are and what we can do", Harper said, adding the expected return of shortstop Trea Turner from the disabled list "is huge as well".

Braves: OF Matt Kemp (right hamstring tightness) may come off the 10-day DL on Thursday after having one hit in seven innings in an injury rehab game with Triple A Gwinnett.
