Surging Braves win 6-3 in 10 to sweep Nationals

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Atlanta Braves scored three in the top of the 10th inning Sunday, keeping up their late-season surge and completing a sweep of the Washington Nationals with a 6-3 victory.

Brian McCann drove in a run with a groundout, and pinch hitter Omar Infante followed with a two-run single as the Braves ran their winning streak to six.

They've also won 10 in a row on the road - their longest such streak in more than five years - and are a season-high 15 games over .500 entering the final week of the season.

Mike Gonzalez (5-4) picked up the win in relief for the Braves, who began the day 2½ games behind Colorado in the race for the NL wild card.

Rafael Soriano pitched the 10th for his 27th save. Mike MacDougal (1-1) got the loss.
