Erick Fedde is is going for the Nationals and Huascar Ynoa gets the ball for the Braves.
Atlanta won the first game by a score of 8-5.
The Nationals have really not had a great season so far. They have really been struggling.
This team is in last place of the National League East with a record of 57-81. The Braves lead them by 16.5 games.
Before this series, Washington lost 3 games out of 5 to the Mets. In those games, the Nationals scored 25 runs and allowed 36 runs.
Paolo Espino went 5 innings and allowed 5 earned runs on Tuesday.
Erick Fedde has not been great this year. He is 6-9 with an ERA of 5.27. His last start was against the Mets where he went 3 innings and allowed 4 earned runs. New York won that game 11-9.

The offense is scoring 4.44 runs per game which is 18th best in the league.
Washington has hit 157 home runs which is 22nd best in baseball.
The Braves have gotten much better as the year has gone on. They started to play how people thought they would.

Atlanta split a 4 game series with the Rockies before this series. In those games, the Braves scored 24 runs and allowed 18 runs.

The pitching for this team has really improved as the year has gone on. I expect that to continue now that they have Ian Anderson and Huascar Ynoa back healthy.
Their offense remains to be an effective one even without Acuna Jr. They are scoring 4.90 runs per game which is 8th best in the league.
