ATLANTA — Craig Stammen pitched four perfect innings after ace Stephen Strasburg left with an apparent injury, Denard Span tripled and scored two runs, and the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 on Friday night. Strasburg lasted just two innings before leaving the shortest outing of his career. The Nationals did not give an update on Strasburg during the game.
