ATLANTA -- Brian Snitker described Tyrell Jenkins fourth-inning collapse as a rookies growing pains. Texans Official Jerseys .Even so, it was difficult for the interim manager and Braves fans to watch.Jenkins was impressive for three innings before giving up eight runs in the fourth, and Atlantas late comeback fell short in an 11-9 loss to the Washington Nationals on Saturday night.Jenkins (2-4) gave up nine runs while lasting only 3 1/3 innings.Unfortunately, it just got out of hand, Jenkins said. It was tough. ... Going into the fourth it just kind of unraveled.The Braves led 3-1 after three innings, and Jenkins retired the Nationals in order in the third.I thought the way the first three innings went the kid was going to go seven innings, Snitker said. His stuff was crisp, his location was good, and then his stuff wasnt so good, location wasnt so good. It kind of completely turned upside down pretty much.Its just part of a young pitchers plight trying to get to where they want to go.Daniel Murphy and Trea Turner hit homers in Washingtons big fourth inning. Ryan Zimmerman also homered among his three hits in his return from the disabled list.Washington set a Nationals record with nine hits in the inning, including eight straight, and had 17 hits in the game.Max Scherzer (13-7) allowed four runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings, regrouping after giving up three runs in the second.Mark Melancon gave up a two-run single to Chase dArnaud, cutting the lead to two, before recording the final out for his 36th save.Adonis Garcia had a two-run double in Atlantas three-run second. Jeff Francoeur drove in a run with a pinch-hit, bases-loaded single off Matt Belisle in the eighth. Koda Glover gave up three runs in the ninth before giving way to Melancon.Nationals manager Dusty Baker applauded the spirit the last-place Braves showed with their five runs in the last two innings.Youve got to give those guys over there credit, Baker said.

Theyve got a lot of spirit over there.The first-place Nationals have won the first three games of this series and are 11-1 against the Braves this season.Murphy led off the fourth with his 23rd homer, caught by a fan wearing a red Bryce Harper jersey on the first row of the right-field seats. Turner added a three-run homer off Jenkins.Even Scherzer joined the fun with a run-scoring single in the fourth.Scherzer beat out an infield hit in the seventh to drive in another run.Anthony Rendon had four hits and scored three runs.DANSBYS DAY OFFBraves rookie shortstop Dansby Swanson, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft, had his first break from the starting lineup since being called up on Wednesday.Just pick and choose, really, Snitker said of the decision. He doesnt need to go out there every day. Its going to be a big enough acclimation to the major leagues.BIGGER INNINGThe nine hits in the fourth were the most for the Nationals/Expos franchise since Montreal had 13 hits and scored 13 runs in the sixth inning of a 19-3 win over San Francisco on May 7, 1997.TRAINERS ROOMThe Nationals also reinstated catcher Jose Lobaton from the DL.
