Sánchez blanks Braves, Nationals salvage series finale 7-0

WASHINGTON (AP) Anibal Sanchez beat his former team for the third time this season, Howie Kendrick homered and drove in three runs and the Washington Nationals prevented a three-game sweep, beating the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves 7-0 on Sunday.

Washington, which clinched its eighth winning season in a row, ensured it would not lose ground in the wild card race. The Nationals entered the day as the NL's first wild card, 1 1/2 games ahead of Chicago and 2 1/2 games in front of Milwaukee.

Atlanta's magic number to clinch the NL East remained at four.
