Braves Looking for Consistency

The Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals meet at Nationals Park on Monday night. The way both starters have been throwing lately, this should be a great pitching matchup.

The Braves will give the ball to starter Mike Foltynewicz in this one. Right hander Foltynewicz is 4-5 this season with a 3.48 ERA. Folty is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three starts against Washington in his career. He has gone 14 scoreless innings in his last two starts. He has improved with better fastball control as the season has matured. On Wednesday he fired seven scoreless innings in a 14-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Starting this game for the Nationals will be Stephen Strasburg. The right hander has a 2.80 ERA to go along with a 7-2 record this season. Strasburg has been stellar in recent outings against the new-look Braves. That was not the case earlier in his career.The former No. 1 overall draft choice is 6-1 with a 2.68 ERA in eight starts against the Braves since the start of the 2015 season.

Before that, he was only 4-7 with a 4.24 ERA from 2010 to 2014 vs. Atlanta.

Nationals Just got Swept by Rangers
