Nationals hit 4 homers, beat Braves, 9-2

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Ryan Zimmerman had three hits, including a three-run home run, and Washington hit four homers to beat Jair Jurrjens and the Atlanta Braves 9-2 on Tuesday night.

Michael Morse also had three hits, including a homer, while driving in three runs. Danny Espinosa and Laynce Nix also hit homers for Washington.

The Braves, coming off an unusual three-day break after two games at the New York Mets were postponed by Hurricane Irene, were shut down by Livan Hernandez (8-12). Hernandez allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in seven innings.

Jurrjens (13-6) gave up six runs, matching his season high. He allowed eight hits, including three homers, in six innings.
