Big 5th inning carries Braves past Nationals 9-5

Posted: Updated:

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Washington's Ross Detwiler got in some much-needed work before the World Baseball Classic, while the Atlanta Braves scored five runs in the fifth on the way to a 9-5 win over their division rival Tuesday.

Detwiler pitched two scoreless innings before failing to get out of the third, allowing two runs. The left-hander gave up five hits and struck out two in a game delayed an hour by rain.

The Braves erased a 3-2 deficit against loser Ryan Perry, who allowed Jordan Parraz's homer and run-scoring singles to Freddie Freeman and Juan Francisco. Brandon Mann walked Ramiro Pena with the bases loaded before Joey Terdoslavich closed the big inning with a sacrifice fly.

Atlanta starter Mike Minor gave up two runs in two innings. Dusty Hughes claimed the win.
