Brewers split series with Nationals

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Wilson Ramos hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the seventh inning Thursday in his Fourth of July return to the Washington Nationals, leading an 8-5 matinee win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Back after missing 44 games with a strained left hamstring, Ramos had three hits and a career-high five RBIs as the Nationals earned a split of the four-game series and moved back above .500 in their seesaw season.

Ian Desmond, moved to the No. 2 spot in a lineup "epiphany" from manager Davey Johnson, had three hits, stole two bases and scored two runs.

On a star-spangled day in the nation's capital, the game began at 11:06 a.m. (EST) and featured a national anthem sang by Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a new "Freedom Song" performed by Neil Diamond.
