Braves Go 13 Innings, Fall to Nats
Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla simply couldn’t get the ball out of his glove when trying to throw home on a grounder that was ruled an infield single and let the Nationals score the winning run and hand the Braves a heartbreaking 5-4 loss in 13 innings after Monday night turned into Tuesday morning at Nationals Park. The series continues Tuesday night at 7:00 PM. Meanwhile, the Braves signed veteran first baseman Lyle Overbay to a minor league contract. The 35-year old first baseman, released by Arizona on August 5, will report to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
