The Washington Nationals scored 15 runs in a game today for the first time since the franchise moved from Montreal to Washington for the 2005 season. The Nats beat the Braves in Atlanta, 15-6.
In that same time period, every other team in the majors had scored at least 15 runs at least once and the Yankees had done it 16 times.
Jesus Flores had five hits in the game and he was the first catcher in franchise history (Washington or Montreal) to do that in a game. Flores was only the second Nationals player to have five hits in a 9-inning game, joining Nook Logan.
