MILWAUKEE (AP) — Lane Thomas hit two RBI doubles and the Washington Nationals broke out of their hitting slump in an 8-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Brewers lost right-hander Freddy Peralta to shoulder tightness in the fourth inning.
Peralta left after allowing a run-scoring double to Thomas during the Nationals’ six-run outburst in the fourth.
That marked the Nationals’ highest-scoring inning of the season and matched the biggest run total the Brewers had allowed in a single inning this year.
The Brewers now head to San Diego to begin a three-game series against the Padres on Monday.
