MUR­PHY’S SIN­GLE LIFTS NATS PAST BRAVES IN 10

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Daniel Mur­phy’s one-out RBI sin­gle in the 10th in­ning capped the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als’ 5-4 come­back vic­tory over the At­lanta Braves on Fri­day.

Adrian Sanchez led off the 10th against Ian Krol (1-2) with his first ma­jor-league hit and two bat­ters later moved to third on Ryan Zim­mer­man’s sin­gle. Mur­phy then lofted an op­po­site-field sin­gle over left fielder Matt Kemp’s head to win it for Wash­ing­ton.

Matt Al­bers (5-1) in­duced Kemp’s dou­ble play grounder to end the 10th to help the Na­tion­als es­cape a two-on jam.
