The fourth straight win to start the second half gave the Nats a 10.5-game lead in the NL East. Dusty Baker talked after the series finale about taking four in a row from the Reds, and winning a day game, a focus for the veteran skipper this season. “We’re inching towards at least .500 on day games and we increased our road record,” Baker said, “… and also — not only getaway days, but we’ve been flirting with sweeps quite a few times but just don’t complete that
