The Atlanta Braves will try to keep their dominance going against NL East rivals Washington Nationals. The Braves are 54-37 this season and have won 5 of their last 7 games, including yesterday’s game when they picked up a 5-4 victory. On the other hand, the Washington Nationals are 30-61 this season and have lost 7 games in a row.
Atlanta’s offense is looking like a real threat, with Austin Riley looking for his 100th hit of the season, carrying 47 extra base hits (21 doubles, 1 triple and 25 home runs). Matt Olson is also doing a great job being 10-for-42 with two doubles, four home runs and eight RBI over the last 10 games.
Today, Washington’s Patrick Corbin will face the wrath of the Braves offense. He’s faced them two times this season, and it has ended in disappointing performances both times, to say the least. He has authored a 10.38 ERA in these head-to-head meetings. Overall, he holds a 4-11 record with a 5.70 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP over 94.2 innings pitched.
Ian Anderson is making his 18th start of the season for the Atlanta Braves. The 24-year-old carries a 7-5 record with a 5.70 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP over 86.2 innings pitched. He went head-to-head with them in his last outing and held them to 2 hits and 2 runs in a little over 5 innings of work, while striking out 5.
This is a tough match-up for Washington, even as a home team, especially for Patrick Corbin who is facing such an explosive offense. The Braves hung 5 runs on the board in the opener, and they could just as easily hang way more in the 2nd game of the series
