WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rick Ankiel drove in three runs with a homer and suicide-squeeze bunt, Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos each had three hits and the Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 6-3 on a dreary Saturday.
In a game that included two rain delays totaling 87 minutes, Ankiel's two-run homer run highlighted a three-run third inning off Tommy Hanson (0-1). Ankiel put down his bunt in the seventh.
Werth, who signed a seven-year, $126 million contract with Washington in December, had doubles in the first and third innings and a single in the fourth. Ramos, set to split the catching duties with Ivan Rodriguez, hit three singles.
John Lannan (1-0) got the win, Washington's first of the season.
