Brewers drop series to Nationals
Story By Associated Press

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Jayson Werth hit a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the ninth after the Brewers tied it in the top of the inning and the Washington Nationals beat Milwaukee 5-4 on Sunday afternoon.

Washington's bullpen tossed five scoreless innings in relief of Gio Gonzalez until Rickie Weeks' RBI single in the ninth off closer Rafael Soriano (1-1), who earned the win despite blowing his third save in 25 chances.

Anthony Rendon reached on a fielder's choice against Rob Wooten (1-4) with two outs in the ninth. He scored from first on Werth's drive into the left field corner.

Washington took two of three in the series between teams that entered Sunday as division leaders.

Ryan Zimmerman had two hits, including a two-run homer, for the Nationals.

CRANDON - The final person living at Crandon's only nursing home left last week.

Last month, AGI Healthcare announced it was closing, forcing 37 residents to find new homes and forcing 60 workers to find new jobs.

By state law, nursing homes can't close until all people have a new home.

Forest County's Economic Development office said it was unsuccessful in finding a buyer for the home.

The nursing home's owner told us in April it wasn't making enough money to stay afloat.

Many people living in Crandon moved to Nu Roc nursing home in Blackwell.
