The Nats have the advantage with ace Stephen Strasburg on the mound. Strasburg is 9-2 with an ERA of 2.60 this season and has won his last two starts versus the Braves. He is a dominant pitcher who averages 7.9 strikeouts per start. These are exactly the type of pitchers that have given the Braves problems. In fact, Atlanta is 0-8 at home this season versus starting pitchers who strike out 5 batters or more per start. The Braves have lost these eight games by an average score of 6.6 to 2.3.
While Atlanta doesn’t figure to get too much off Strasburg, Washington should be able to get to Minor. He’s just 3-6 with a 6.14 ERA this season. The Braves are 0-3 in his last 3 starts overall and 0-3 in his last 3 starts versus Washington. We’ll bet the Nationals.
