The Nationals have gone back to back to back to back. That's not a typo. Four homers in a row off Brewers starter Michael Blazak. Brain Goodwin, Wilmer Difo, Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman. First time in Nats/Expos history they've gone B2B2B2B.

Bryce Harper got tossed, the Nationals batted around in a 7-run eighth inning, and reports surfaced that Stephen Strasburg will miss his next start. Just another day at the office that is Nats Park. Oh, and Washington beat Milwaukee 8-5.

Difo stumbles on way home, still scores (0:29)

Lewis Brinson made his first big-legaue bomb count. The Brewers outfielder, called up today, just took Sean Doolittle deeeeeep to left center at Nats Park. No distance yet, but it didn't look too far away from where teammate Domingo Santana's 476-foot jack landed earlier in the game.

Tuesday's longest home runs

Taijuan Walker's first career homer paced the competition at 455 feet -- the second-longest by a pitcher this season (Jon Gray, 467 feet). Bradley Zimmer's 435-footer marked his first career grand slam, while Eric Thames' blast ended a drought dating back to July 4.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Nationals fell 7-0 to the Brewers, just the third time this season they've been shut out. Only the Reds (twice) have been blanked less among NL teams. Despite the loss, Washington (59-39) still boasts the third-best record in baseball.
