Dickey dazzles Nationals in Braves' win

(TSX / STATS) -- ATLANTA -- Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey got back on track after a rough three-start stretch, and also snapped a five-game losing streak to the Washington Nationals dating to 2012.

Dickey allowed four hits and walked none over eight innings, and Arodys Vizcaino, who had a three-walk meltdown the day before, got the save as the Atlanta Braves edged the Nationals 3-2 on Thursday night.

Dickey (10-10) had allowed 17 runs (16 earned) over 14 1/3 innings in his previous three September starts, but gave up only a second-inning homer to Ryan Zimmerman and an eighth-inning run Thursday.
