Harper, Espinosa lead Nationals over Braves 9-3

Posted: Updated:

VIERA, Fla. (AP) - Bryce Harper had three hits and stole two bases, one day after he was scratched because of a swollen left hand, and Danny Espinosa went 3 for 3 with a three-run homer Sunday in the Washington Nationals' rain-shortened 9-3 win over the Atlanta Braves.

In a game called after seven innings because of bad weather, Washington's Jordan Zimmermann allowed three runs - one earned - and six hits in six innings with four strikeouts.

The day was so windy that Atlanta starter Kris Medlen wondered whether he would be blown over as he started his windup. Medlen gave up six runs and eight hits in five innings.

Adam LaRoche had two hits and three RBIs for Washington, which had 12 hits. Dan Uggla had an RBI single for the Braves.
