ATLANTA (AP) — Jace Peterson hit a tiebreaking homer in the 10th inning off Shawn Kelley, giving the Atlanta Braves a 7-6 victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday.

Rain delayed the game 1 hour, 4 minutes in the bottom of the eighth.

Kelley (1-2) hung his head and walked toward the dugout as soon as Peterson made contact with his seventh homer. Kelley gave up one hit and one run in two-thirds of an inning.

Jose Ramirez (1-0) faced four batters in the 10th to earn the win.

Four of Washington's five errors led to runs for the Braves.
