Braves Vs. Nationals Preview: Washington Seeks Sweep Of Atlanta

The Washington Nationals will be looking to win their fourth consecutive game and also a three-game sweep of the visiting Atlanta Braves when the two meet on Wednesday night at Nationals Park. Washington defeated Atlanta on Tuesday by a final score of 4-1 and the victory put the Nats seven games ahead of the Braves in the NL East standings.

The Nationals will send Ross Detwiler to the mound in the series finale. Detwiler picked up a win in his last outing against the New York Mets last Friday and has been on a tear since the All-Star break. The left-hander has gone 3-0 with an ERA of 1.33 since the break.

First pitch on Wednesday night will be at 7:05 p.m. ET.
