The Nationals are all but out of the playoff conversation, so their motivation will be to finish the season strong, with a record above .500. Playing the Braves is always tense for both clubs, so they will be trying to close the division gap between the Braves and Phillies, putting the pressure on Atlanta.
Hellickson will be the projected starting pitcher for the Nationals in game two. He has not started since injuring his wrist on August 15th, 2018 when he went 4.1 innings and allowed 2 earned runs. He unfortunately received the loss in this game, but has shown flashes of great pitching this year and could be used as a regular starter for the Nationals going forward if he can stay healthy.
The Braves are playing exceptionally well right now after their most recent road trip and have opened a 7.5 game lead in the division. It is vital that they continue to play well when they return home to ensure they do not lose ground on the Philadelphia Phillies. The Braves have played poorly at their home ballpark this season, which could come back to bite them in the playoffs.
Julio Teheran will take the mound for the Braves in game two. Teheran has not earned a decision at home since July 30th, 2018, so this will be his chance to prove he is the true ace for the Braves with the playoffs looming.
