Sunday, August 31, 2008 (AP) -- Aaron Boone failed to lay down a sacrifice, then slammed a three-run, eighth-inning home run to lift the Washington Nationals to their season-high sixth straight win, 8-4 over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Called on to bunt after a single by Ryan Zimmerman and a walk to Elijah Dukes, Boone popped Elmer Dessens' first offering foul. Boone sent the next pitch from Dessens (0-1) into the left-field bullpen for his sixth homer, his first since May 27.
