Location: Truist Park, Georgia, Atlanta.
Atlanta Braves: Close to the playoffs.
The Braves have a 69% chance of winning in the Wildcard Series and a 64% chance of playing in the division series. They are doing everything they can to play in the postseason. But in the last series the results have been negative.
They lost to Colorado two of four games in a long series on the road. Almost every game in that game ended with a score of 10 or more runs. The Braves are hitting an average of 4.7 runs in the last 10 games. Two wins at home in recent games as part of a series against the San Francisco Giants.
Max Fried opens the game against the Nationals. He is in his fifth year as a professional in the MLB, all those years he has played for the Atlanta Braves. This season he is pitching .611, 3.51 Era, 130.2 innings pitched, 119 hits allowed; 55 runs, 14 home runs and 1.179 WHIP.
Washington Nationals: Nothing to fight for.
The season for the Nationals ended up being negative. They have 57 wins and 80 losses. Only two wins in the last 10 games. Most of the last few games were at home, at least they won twice at home against the New York Mets. But after all, that long series against the Mets was a 3-2 loss.
The record on the road is negative. The Nationals won 24 games on the road and lost 41 times. Not even at home the record is positive at 33-39. This 2021 season is a disaster for the Nationals. They won a series against Atlanta in June and a game in April.
Paolo Espino will be on the mound to defend the Nationals. This is his second year with the team. This is the first season Espino has officially pitched in a baseball game. So far 4-4 overall for him with 4.08 ERA, 86 innings pitched, 83 hits allowed; 40 runs, 15 home runs, 70 strike outs and 1,151 WHIP.
