Bryce Harper had a 5-RBI game, during Washington's 8-6 triumph over the Atlanta Firebirds. Harper contributed 1 single and 2 home runs to the cause. A.J.

Who knows how it might've ended, had it not been for Jonathan Schoop? The Washington second baseman had a run-scoring single in the top of the sixth inning to put the Nationals on top, 6-4. For the game, Schoop had 1 double and 1 single in 4 at-bats.

"It was a nice win for our side today," said Nationals manager Mike Matheny. "Not perfect, but we'll take it."
