Check out our three takeaways from yesterdays 3-2 win by the Washington Nationals over the Milwaukee Brewers. 

The Washington Nationals finally ended their season long seven game losing streak Sunday afternoon, by defeating the Brewers 3-2. The New York Mets also lost to the Atlanta Braves, so the Nats increased there lead in the division back to three games.

Tanner Roark once again came up big for the Washington Nationals when they needed a great start. He went seven outstanding scoreless innings and delivered once again on short notice after Stephen Strasburg was scratched and eventually placed on the 15-day disabled list before yesterday’s game.

Although the offense only was able to deliver four hits in the game, they made them count with two of them being home runs in the final three innings of the game and coming from two bench players normally in Jose Lobaton and Clint Robinson.

While the Brewers did try to comeback in this game against the Nats bullpen, Shawn Kelley was able to strike out three batters and record his third save. It was a huge win for the team, even though they ended up losing two out of three to Milwaukee.

Before Joe Ross takes the mound in a huge series versus the New York Mets tonight (7:05 p.m ET, MASN/MLB Network), check out my three takeaways from the 3-2 win over the Brewers yesterday:
