But, the story of the night was Max Scherzer. "He knows we've been struggling in the bullpen, and he said he had 110 pitches or more in him".
With the Braves trailing by two with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, infielder Travis d'Arnaud swung and missed on a 1-2 slider from Washington close Shawn Kelley.
It was a wide miss, but Bucknor apparently thought he caught a piece of it and called it a foul tip after convening with the rest of the umpires.
Trying to move above.500 for the first time since before the 2015 All-Star break, Atlanta slipped to 6-7.
CHICAGO - Addison Russell hit a three-run homer off Neftali Feliz (0-2) that capped a four-run ninth inning. Atlanta got the first two runners on base after the Nats took a 2-0 lead in the top half of the frame. Only Jeff Burroughs (11 in 1978) has a longer streak for Atlanta. The Nationals have won all six games he started against Atlanta since the beginning of the 2016 season.

Almost two days after Steve Stephens fatally shot Godwin in cold blood, two of his daughters met with Joy Lane for the first time. Police said Steve Stephens , 37, murdered a man on East 93rd Street in Cleveland Sunday afternoon.
Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth left the game during a third-inning at-bat with a groin spasm. But after Jace Peterson leadoff walk and a Foltynewicz sacrifice in the third inning, Ender Inciarte popped out foul and Dansby Swanson struck out.
If there was one inning the Braves had a chance against Scherzer, it was the fourth.
"That's where you've got to be honest with your manager when you can go and you can't go", the right-hander said. "When he's out there throwing 114, 115 pitches and still throwing 95, 96 (mph), it's going to be a tough game".
Teheran has pitched like an ace in his first three starts of the season, giving up only two earned runs in 19 innings.

The spokesman did not anticipate there being any scheduling conflicts around the time that Trump would be traveling to Italy. President Trump and Pope Francis have clashed in public over issues such as migration and climate change.
Unfortunately for Werth, it's unlikely the league does anything, as Bucknor has been umpiring at the major league level for 20 years and has even called playoff games despite his track record.
Sure, the offense played its part in the win due to RBI's from Wilmer Difo, Adam Eaton, and Ryan Zimmerman. First baseman Freddie Freeman has reached base in each of his past 10 plate appearances, with two hits and two walks Tuesday lifting his average to.426. Last night, he had the dominant pitches, but he had the mental edge as well. "My fastball was great early and great at the end". "That's all I got to say". "Our defense played spectacular behind me".
The Washington Nationals will look to complete the sweep, following their 14-4 rout of the Braves on Wednesday evening. And then when I saw the umps talking I said, 'Okay I think this is going to go bad, we're probably going to have to throw another pitch. "It's a credit to Snit for letting him battle through that and build confidence there, get him seven innings".
Bumgarner (0-3) matched Vargas pitch for pitch until the fifth, when Paulo Orlando managed a one-out single. "He gave us a chance to win".
