ATLANTA -- The Nationals celebrated Adam LaRoches 15th-inning homer that gave Washington an 8-7 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night. Nike Air Max 98 Brown . The team also was left with lingering concerns about Stephen Strasburgs ejection and closer Rafael Sorianos blown save. Strasburg was tossed in the second inning. He hit Justin Upton with a pitch in the first and was tossed after throwing two straight pitches behind Andrelton Simmons back. The Nationals insisted Strasburg wasnt trying to hit Simmons, but instead was unable to regain his control after walking Jordan Schafer on four pitches to open the second. "Hes still kind of learning to deal with the adversities of pitching up here," said Nationals manager Davey Johnson, who also was ejected by plate umpire Marvin Hudson when he argued in defence of Strasburg. "When he went back out in the second inning, Ive never seen his command so bad," Johnson said. "He couldnt come close to the first hitter he faced. Then he threw a curve ball that was eight feet outside and then a couple balls that were behind the hitter. It didnt look like he was trying to hit (Simmons). He couldnt find the strike zone." Entering the game, Strasburg had thrown three wild pitches in 146 1-3 innings. He doubled that total by unleashing three consecutive wild pitches, including the two behind Simmons back. When Johnson and Strasburg were in the clubhouse after being tossed, Johnson said he immediately sought to find out if his ace was hurt. "The first thing I said when we were both in here was Are you hurt? Is something wrong with you?" Johnson said. "He said No. Im just out of sorts." The Nationals loaded the bases and scored two runs in each of the first two innings. On a night when the game-time temperature was 66 degrees, Strasburg said he "just got a little cold. I was just missing spots." Asked if it was a mechanical problem, Strasburg said "I cant really explain it. I just didnt really feel good out there and couldnt hit the spot." Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said it was "just weird" to see Strasburgs suddenly unable to throw strikes. He said he didnt think Strasburg was trying to hit Simmons. "I dont know if theres something wrong with him physically, because it just didnt look right," Gonzalez said. "It didnt look right." LaRoche lifted a high fly ball into the right-field seats for this 18th homer off Kris Medlen (10-11), who was pressed into service after Atlanta exhausted its bullpen. The game lasted 5 hours, 29 minutes. Jason Heyward hit two homers, including a two-run shot in the ninth as Soriano blew a 7-5 lead. Craig Stammen (6-5) allowed no hits in three scoreless innings, striking out five with one walk. Dan Haren pitched the 15th for his first career save. Haren said he threw 30 to 35 pitches in his regular bullpen session before the game, but didnt hesitate to volunteer for the rare relief appearance. "We needed a game like this," Haren said. Atlantas Brian McCann had three hits, including a two-run homer. Freddie Freeman also homered for the Braves. Ryan Zimmerman hit a homer for Washington. Each team used all its relievers. Medlen, scheduled to start Tuesday at the Mets, made his first relief appearance of the season as Atlantas ninth pitcher of the night. Soriano suffered his sixth blown save. Heywards second homer of the game, a two-run shot to right-centre with two outs in the ninth, sent the game to extra innings. Braves pitchers hit Bryce Harper with two pitches in Atlantas win on Friday night, leaving the outfielder bruised and unable to start on Saturday night. That set the stage for Strasburg. Strasburg hit Upton in the first inning one pitch after Heywards leadoff home run. The pitch hit Uptons backside, and he quickly ran to first. Asked if he meant to hit Upton, Strasburg said "Im not going to get into that." But the answer seemed clear. "Well after somebody goes deep and you hit him in the rear end, I dont think its a big deal," Johnson said. "I dont know if he did it on purpose or not." The second-inning meltdown by Strasburg was more difficult to figure out. The drama left Braves fans howling, but no players emerged from either dugout. There were no additional incidents in the game. There were tensions between the teams that carried over from the Braves three-game sweep at Washington on Aug. 5-7. Both benches emptied when Harper was hit by a Julio Teheran pitch in the second game of the series. Tanner Roark dominated the Braves after taking over for Strasburg. Roark allowed only one hit in four scoreless innings. He had a run-scoring double in the fifth for his first major league hit and RBI. Mike Minor allowed four runs in only 1 2-3 innings, the shortest of his 78 career starts. Minor gave up bases-loaded, two-run singles to Wilson Ramos in the first and Jayson Werth in the second. Harper was in Johnsons original lineup, but was held out with bruised triceps until entering the game as a defensive replacement in the ninth. Strasburg gave up two runs and two hits, two walks and one hit batter in one-plus inning. Like Minor, he also had the shortest start of his career. Werth doubled off Luis Ayala in the sixth and scored on a single by Wilson Ramos. NOTES: Washingtons Scott Hairston was ejected by Hudson in the ninth for arguing a called third strike. ... The Nationals placed RHP Taylor Jordan on the 15-day DL with a lower back strain. Tyler Moore was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse and had two hits while starting at first base. ... The Braves signed IF Tyler Greene to a minor league contract. Greene, released by the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett. ... 2B Dan Uggla, who had corrective eye surgery on Friday, said a test Saturday showed his vision at 20-15. He expects to be ready to play when eligible to come off the 15-day DL on Aug. 28. ... The series concludes on Sunday when Nationals LHP Gio Gonzalez faces Atlantas Julio Teheran.

ELMONT, N.Y. -- After suffering some tough beats, Stallwalkin Dude finally earned his first graded stakes victory, parlaying a perfect trip under Irad Ortiz Jr. to a 1-1/2-length victory in Saturdays Grade 3, $200,000 Bold Ruler Handicap at Belmont Park.The win was not only Stallwalkin Dudes first in a graded event - this was his 10th try in such a race - but the $120,000 first-place purse pushed the 6-year-old geldings career earnings to $1,088,352. Not bad for a horse trainer David Jacobson claimed for $16,000 in September 2014 at Gulfstream Park.Its very rewarding, said Jacobson, who owns the horse along with Head of Plains Partners. I didnt realize he didnt win a graded stakes; he won so many races for us.The Bold Ruler was Stallwalkin Dudes 16th career victory from 46 starts. He has 12 wins from 31 starts and earned $1,008,150 since Jacobson claimed him.Stallwalkin Dude worked out as clean a trip as one would could hope for in an 11-horse field sprinting. He broke alertly, but was quickly taken in hand by Ortiz and settled in fifth position, three to four lengths off the pace set by Green Gratto.Stallwalkin Dude saved ground down the backstretch, tipped three to four wide at the three-eighths pole, took the lead three-sixteenths from home, and was kept to his task as he tired late. Threefiveindia, under Javier Castellano, rallied along the rail to get second by two lengths over Economic Model, the 2-1 favorite. The second- and third-place finishers are both trained by Chad Brown.Following Economic Model in the ordder of finish were, in order, Mylute, Green Gratto, Dannies Deceiver, Amis Flatter, Cadeyrn, Touchofstarquality, Face of Winner, and Farhaan. Nike Air Max 98 Red. . Liberty Holiday was an early scratch while Gentrify was scratched by the stewards on the advice of the track veterinarian at the starting gate.Stallwalkin Dude, by City Place, ran seven furlongs in 1:21.66 and returned $10.80 as the second choice.At the three-eighths pole he wants to go and he just does it on his own, Ortiz said. At the quarter pole, he was moving great, I let him go do his thing. I wait as long as I can and when I asked him he responded pretty good.The win was one of three on the card for Ortiz, who tied Javier Castellano atop the Belmont jockey standings with 47 wins apiece with one day remaining in the fall meet.Though hes at the end of his 6-year-old season, Stallwalkin Dude is as consistent as ever. He entered the Bold Ruler off a second-place finish behind Breeders Cup bound Joking in the Grade 1 Vosburgh.Hes real good right now, Jacobson said. The key to horses like him that love to run and are very sound is go easy in the morning and let them do their running in the afternoon.Jacobson mentioned the Grade 3, $200,000 Fall Highweight at Aqueduct on Thanksgiving as a possible next start for Stallwalkin Dude. There is also the Grade 3, $250,000 De Francis Dash at Laurel Park on Nov. 19. Both races are at six furlongs.
