He’s got a taste for meat now*. Freddie Freeman hit his second grand slam of the series, Marcell Ozuna homered and drove in 4 runs, and Josh Tomlin threw 6 innings of 1 run ball to allow the Braves to split the series, and send the Nationals to a 14 – 25 record.

Tyler Flowers hit a 2 run double in the bottom of the 4th to put the Braves ahead 2 – 1, and Freeman’s second career slam cracked it open in the 6th, making the score 7 – 1. Ozuna went 3 – 5, adding a bases clearing double in the 7th.

Tomlin allowed 3 hits and walked none, striking out 2. Chris Martin and Darren O’Day continued to impress, combining to allow 1 hit and striking out 5 in an inning apiece. Bryse Wilson allowed the final runs in the 9th. Wilson was the 16th different pitcher the Braves used in the 4 game series.

The Braves have completed 67% of their season, and hold a 3 game lead in the NL East. The Marlins come to town Monday for a 1:10 Labor Day start; Ian Anderson and Jose Urena scheduled.
