After winning nine-straight, Atlanta has cooled recently while splitting its last four contests. Though the Braves are one of four MLB teams with 90 wins this season and hold a 9.5 game lead over their nearest NL East competitor with two weeks remaining until postseason play begins.
A revamped Atlanta bullpen has worked wonders alongside All Stars Ronald Acuna Jr., Freddie Freeman and a carousel of quality positional players.
Tonight, the Braves get a last regular-season look at wildcard contending, division rival Washington. Atlanta recently edged the Nationals in three close wins to cap a four-game series.
Braves staff ace Mike Soroka takes the mound tonight. Soroka (11-4, 2.67 ERA) allowed four runs through six innings Sept. 8 vs. Washington. The Braves dropped that contest 9-4, and it was the first time since July 20 that’s Soroka gave up more than three earned runs in a start.
Atlanta is 2-2 when Soroka goes against the Nationals this season. The Braves are 17-9 overall when Soroka appears.
After a failed late power grab at the NL East throne, Washington currently lead the NL wildcard by a handful of games. The Nationals have struggled, though in September, winning just three-of-nine after an 18-3 run through August.
The Nationals picked up some of that lost momentum in Wednesday, defeating AL Central leader Minnesota 6-2.
Washington has lost five of their last six vs. Atlanta.
Perennial Cy Young front runner Max Scherzer toes the mound tonight for the Nats. Scherzer (10-5, 2.56 ERA) two-hit Atlanta through six innings to punctuate a 9-4 Sept. 8 win.
Washington is 10-1 in Scherzer’s last 11 starts.
