Dansby Swanson smacked a bases-loaded, two-run single off Washington ace Max Scherzer in the seventh inning, Matt Kemp hit a grand slam two batters later and the Atlanta Braves beat the Nationals 8-2 on Wednesday.

Max Scherzer's Cy Young resume took a hit, as the Nats ace allowed six runs in six innings to take his ERA from 2.32 to 2.59 in Washington's 8-2 loss to the Braves. Meanwhile, Atlanta starter Luiz Gohara, making his second career start, became the second Brazilian pitcher ever to pick up a big-league W.

Ozzie Albies looks like a keeper. The 20-year old Braves infielder has walked and hit the ball hard twice off Max Scherzer, including a game-tying RBI single. Albies has an 11-game hit streak and is slashing .295/.359/.470 since being called up on August 1st.

Braves starter Luiz Gohara is the fifth Brazilian player to reach the majors. Tonight at Nats Park, he tries to become the first Brazilian pitcher to get a W since Andre Rienzo in 2014. All he has to do is beat Max Scherzer.
