Nationals get grand win
Lopez lifts Washington
Felipe Lopez matched his career high with six RBIs, four of which came on a tie-breaking grand slam in the eighth inning that sent the Nationals to a win over the Reds. Matt Chico, who lasted 5 2/3 innings and allowed four runs on three hits, didn't factor into the decision and is still looking for his first road win.
