ATLANTA — The Washington Nationals say an Atlanta-area television worker has died after collapsing before their game against the Braves.

Nationals spokesman John Dever says 61-year-old Reuben Porras of Newnan, Ga., collapsed Wednesday while setting up for MLB Network, which is set to broadcast the finale of the four-game series in Atlanta on Thursday.

Washington’s head athletic trainer, Lee Kuntz, and his assistant, John Hsu, helped to stabilize Porras before he was taken away in an ambulance. But Dever says the team learned the man later died at a hospital from an apparent heart attack.

The Nationals defeated the Braves 2-0 in the game.
