September 16, 2014 – With a 3-0 win over the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field, the Washington Nationals clinched the 2014 National League East Division title. INF Ian Desmond’s mammoth two-run home run in the top of the sixth inning provided the Nationals all the cushion they would need to claim their second NL East title in three years. RHP Tanner Roark struck out four over 7.0 shutout innings, while RHP Drew Storen threw seven pitches, all strikes, to close the game out for his seventh save of the season.
