Johnson's HR helps Braves beat reeling Nationals, 8-4

ATLANTA (AP) Based on the intensity shown in the season's first game between NL East rivals Washington and Atlanta, the remaining 18 games in the season series could be interesting.

Kelly Johnson homered and drove in three runs, Eric Stults pitched 6 1-3 strong innings and the Braves beat Washington 8-4 on Monday night to give the Nationals their sixth straight loss.

Tensions rose following a hard slide into third base by Atlanta's Andrelton Simmons in the fifth. Simmons was safe when he knocked the ball out of Washington third baseman Yunel Escobar's glove and Escobar left the game with a cut on his left hand.
