Braun walk-off single lifts Brewers over Nats 4-3

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun's single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 win over the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.

Braun also homered in the first and Jim Edmonds homered and made a spectacular play in center field for the Brewers, who got a strong outing from struggling starter Manny Parra.

Washington lost its 12th straight one-run game on the road, and the Nationals have dropped 28 of 36 overall away from Washington.

With one out, Rickie Weeks singled off Nationals reliever Drew Storen (2-2), and Joe Inglett, playing for the injured Corey Hart, drew a walk after being down 0-2 in the count. Braun then lined a shot off the left-field wall to score Weeks.

John Axford (6-1) blew his first save in 15 chances.
