Julio Teheran pitched around trouble through six scoreless innings and a tired Atlanta bullpen held on as the Braves beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 on Sunday.

The Braves won two of three in the series and stretched their NL East lead over the second-place Nationals to 15 1/2 games.

Both teams exhausted their bullpens in the Nationals' 8-7 win in 15 innings on Saturday night.

Four Atlanta relievers made it through the final three innings, preserving the win for Teheran (10-6).

Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 39th save. After Denard Span reached on an infield hit, Kimbrel struck out Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper to end the game.

Freddie Freeman and Chris Johnson hit RBI singles off Gio Gonzalez (7-6) in the first.
