Braves come back from behind and win

Nationals still tied with Atlanta after the Braves came back from behind and beat the Diamondbacks 3-2. Arizona had scored the first run of the game in the 6th inning, but the Braves quickly answered with 2 runs in the top of the 7th. The Diamondbacks could not respond until the bottom of the 8th, but kept the Braves off the board until then. Arizona tied up the game in the bottom of the 8th by scoring one extra run, but the Braves came back and scored another run to take the lead. They completed the win by keeping the Diamondbacks scoreless in the ninth. Reitsma won the game and is now 2-2, while Valverde was credited for the loss and drops to 1-4. Also of note is the only home-run of the game, hit by Andrew Jones, giving him 30 home-runs for the year.
