ATLANTA (AP) -- Mike Minor threw six strong innings, Dan Uggla broke it open with a two-run single and the Atlanta Braves denied Gio Gonzalez his 20th win, completing a sweep of the first-place Washington Nationals 2-1 on Sunday night.
The Braves broke a scoreless tie in the third against Gonzalez (19-8) on Chipper Jones' single. Freddie Freeman added a sacrifice fly.
Washington closed to 2-1 on Ian Desmond's RBI single in the sixth, but the Braves pulled away with a three-run seventh, taking advantage of an error by third baseman Ryan Zimmerman. Michael Bourn scored on a groundout and Uggla came through with his two-out hit.
