After rebounding from a two-game interleague sweep vs. Kansas City, Atlanta took two of three last weekend from the Philadelphia Phillies. However, a bit banged up, Atlanta dropped their Sunday night finale vs. Philadelphia 9-4.
All Star Ronald Acuna Jr. (neck stiffness) is listed as questionable for tonight’s contest vs. NL East rival Washington. Acuna exited Sunday’s loss against the Phillies. Likewise, tonight the Braves will be without sharp hitting LF Nick Markakis. Markakis is expected to miss six weeks after fracturing his wrist during the Braves’ latest road setback.
When factoring SS Dansby Swanson’s current absence, Atlanta faces its fourth-straight road game without key faces from a group leading the NL East by 5.5 games over today’s opponent.
Dallas Keuchel (3-3, 3.50 ERA) opens tonight for Atlanta after the Braves lost Keuchel’s last two starts -the most recent 5-4 vs. KC on July 23. The former Cy Young winner is 0-1 in 2019 opposite Washington, allowing eight hits and four runs through five innings during Atlanta’s 4-3 June 21 setback.
Overall, the Braves are 3-4 when Keuchel appears. Atlanta is 3-3 in their last six, splitting a recent four-game home set with Washington.
With a Sunday night win over NL-leader Los Angeles, the Nationals are 5-5 since July 20 -a day the Nationals edged Atlanta 5-3. Further, Washington’s 29-20 NL East record is equal with the Braves’ 26-17 division mark.
The Nationals have won five-of-eight this season against Atlanta.
Two-time All Star Patrick Corbin takes the mound for Washington this evening. Corbin (8-5, 3.25 ERA) lost his last start vs. the Braves after allowing eight hits and two runs in five worked innings July 19. Overall, however, Corbin has won his last three decisions and Washington is 6-1 during the lefty’s seven previous starts.
