Watch as Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos beats the Pirates on Saturday with this walkoff double …
That was the fifth straight win for the Nats, who now have a six-game lead over the Braves in the National League East standings. It was the fourth straight loss for the Bucs, who are suddenly 4 1/2 games back of the Brewers for the top spot in the National League Central. Sunday’s series finale is at 4 p.m. ET.
The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.
Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
