Ozuna hits grand slam, Braves beat Nats in Fried's return

WASHINGTON (AP) For the second time in two nights, the Washington Nationals walked Atlanta's Freddie Freeman intentionally to load the bases for Marcell Ozuna. This time, the slumping slugger made them pay.

Ozuna hit Atlanta's third grand slam in four games, Max Fried pitched five strong innings in his return from the injured list, and the Braves beat the Nationals 5-3 on Wednesday night.

"I start laughing," Ozuna said of the walk to Freeman, "and then looking up, a little prayer like, `God, please give me the opportunity to get a base hit.'"
