By on 6/22/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Washington Nationals defeated the Atlanta Braves on Saturday by the score of 3-0 behind the shutout pitching of Doug Fister and Rafeal Soriano. Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Jose Lobaton scored two runs for the Nationals. Lobaton was playing for the injured Wilson Ramos, who has been on the disabled list. Ramos began a rehab assignment last night and should return late next week.

Our own Jacob Fagan reported on June 11 that Ramos was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury. James Wagner of The Washington Post reported that Ramos was scheduled to play four rehab games starting on Saturday before returning to the Nationals. Ramos hope to rejoin the Nationals in Chicago on Wednesday and come off the disabled list on Thursday when eligible.

Ramos batted third for the Harrisburg Senators against Akron on Saturday and went 1-for-3 with a home run and three runs batted in.

Ramos, in his fifth Major League season, is batting .261 with a home run and 11 RBI this season. Last season, he had a career best 16 home runs and 59 RBI, while batting .272. He's a career .269 hitter with 36  home runs and 137 RBI.
