Sean Doolittle gave up one hit and struck out three in an inning of work to pick up his 10th save. Howie Kendrick helped pace the offense as he went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored. Trea Turner was 3-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base. Kurt Suzuki ended the game 2-for-5 with a double, a run and an RBI. Anibal Sanchez starts tonight as he comes in with an 0-6 record, 5.10 ERA and 1.68 WHIP with 41 strikeouts over 42 2/3 innings.

Braves edged at home

Atlanta suffered a 5-4 home defeat Tuesday night versus Washington to drop to 30-25 overall and 14-13 at home. Austin Riley paced the Braves offense as he went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs.

Max Fried took the loss as he allowed four earned runs on nine hits with four strikeouts and three walks over 5 2/3 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Washington

The Nationals are 1-5 in the last six Sanchez starts. Washington is 1-8 in its last nine games versus a right-handed starter.

Atlanta

The Braves are 5-0 in their last five games following a loss. Atlanta is 5-1 in the last six Gausman starts.

Prediction:

Gausman has been pitching well of late and Washington has struggled with right-handed pitching all season. With Sanchez not able to find his form and the Nationals bullpen being a nearly complete disaster, it's hard not to love Atlanta in this spot. Look for the Braves to boucne back with a home win.
