The Nationals' scheduled game Monday night against the Braves was postponed due to the shootings at the nearby Navy Yard.
The Braves could clinch the NL East title at Nationals Park this week. The Nats don't want to let that happen.
Wilson Ramos notched 5 RBI in the Nationals' 11-2 thumping of the Phillies, then watched with his teammates as the Reds blew their game in Milwaukee to put Washington 4 1/2 games back.
The Nationals opened the game hitting several balls hard against Tyler Cloyd but not having much to show for it. That changed in a hurry.
