ATLANTA (AP) -Brian McCann's run-scoring single gave the Braves their first lead in a week, and he added a three-run homer to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 4-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Monday night.
The Braves snapped a five-game losing streak, their longest of the season. The streak included four shutout losses.
McCann's second four-RBI game of the season helped Tim Hudson (7-5) win for the first time since May 30. Bob Wickman got three outs for his 13th save in 16 chances.
Jason Bergmann (1-4), who came off the disabled list to start after missing five weeks with an inflamed right elbow, gave up four hits and one run in four innings.
