Nats; Harper sweep Braves in DC

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Streaking slugger Bryce Harper doubled, singled and drove in another run - but didn't homer - as the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 5-4 Sunday for a sweep of the three-game series.
Harper had hit six home runs in his previous three games. He doubled home a run, giving him 13 RBIs in four games, and also scored once.
Wilson Ramos hit a tiebreaking double to cap a two-run rally in the eighth inning, sending the Nationals to their 10th win in 12 games. Ramos and Ryan Zimmerman each had a double, single and two RBIs.
Sammy Solis (1-0) pitched one inning for his first major league win and Drew Storen closed for his ninth save.
Ian Desmond singled to open the eighth off Cody Martin (1-2) and Jayson Werth walked. After Harper popped out, Zimmerman hit a tying single, but Werth was tagged out after rounding second and falling. Ramos then doubled to the deep right.
