Sánchez, Adams pace Nationals past Braves, 5-3

ATLANTA (AP) Nationals closer Sean Doolittle knew his team couldn't afford to falter in the late innings for the second straight night.

"I hesitate to use the phrase that today was a must-win game because it's still the third week of July," Doolittle said. "But after a tough one (Friday) night and knowing what the standings already are, I think tonight was really, really important for us."

Anibal Sanchez outpitched Mike Soroka and scored the go-ahead run in the fifth inning, Matt Adams homered and Washington beat the Atlanta Braves 5-3 on Saturday night.
